  • Sleep.

    v. cease being awake.

    Scientists are still not entirely clear why we sleep, but the longer term consequences of too little sleep include obesity, memory loss and lower IQ (one hours lost sleep is equivalent to a temporary one-point dip in your IQ score with each extra hour leading to a loss of another two points).

    There's been a lot of bravado about doing without sleep, but why would you want to?

  • Eat.

    v. to consume food.

    The daily ritual of meals - the shared preparation and the act of eating with others - can bring people together in more than one sense. It is a time when human bonds are formed, sustained and enriched. A time to listen to each other, indulge each other, inform each other, entertain each other and enjoy each other.

    In a society that values individualism at the expense of community, this is a simple way to share warmth, love and a sense of belonging.

  • Food philosophy

    "Heckfield Place food will be driven by excellence at source, focusing on integrity and provenance. Our belief is that good food begins with good ingredients, carefully sourced and at their seasonal best. Our most crucial technique is a feel and an intuition for food. Certainly thought and composition are important, food on a plate should appeal to the eye as well as the palate but never at the expense of flavour. When clever technique and fragile structure are all that are considered, a dish will only live for a short time in the memory.

    Above all, cooking is an act of love and giving, it is about breaking bread with family and friends, about conviviality and shared experience.

    A love of eating and a real appreciation of great produce, combined with a generosity of spirit and the desire to share with others is at the core of beautiful food."

    Skye Gyngell

  • Artichoke Caponata

    This is a variation of a dish served in southern Italy. It is lovely served alongside cured meats or as an accompaniment to roast lamb or chicken.

    • 1 x stick of celery, finely chopped
    • 1 x yellow onion peeled and finely chopped
    • 8 x small artichokes, trimmed and sliced into 1/4s.
    • 2 x tblspn of capers, rinsed well
    • 3 x tblspn of good quality black olives, pitted and roughly chopped
    • A small handful of toasted pine nuts
    • 100 mls of extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 ½ tblspn of tomato paste
    • 75 mls of red wine vinegar
    • 1 x bunch of mint, leaves only
    • 1 x bunch of flat leaf parsley, leaves only
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Warm a tblspn of the oil in a fry pan. Add the onion and celery and cook slowly, stirring from time to time for 10 minutes. Add the artichokes and cook for a further 5 minutes. Then add the tomato paste, red wine vinegar and a splash of water. Season with a little salt and pepper and place a lid over the pan. Cook until the artichokes are tender but still retain a bite (about 10 minutes), add the capers, olives and toasted pine nuts. Stir well to combine. Remove from the heat and add the parsley, mint and olive oil. Adjust seasoning if necessary and serve at room temperature.
