Rolled spiced pork belly stuffed with apricots and prunes wilted
spinach roasted root vegetables
Profiteroles filled with 3 different creams, orange, rose water and

Liv: What would you like for your birthday?
Rachel: Your visual knowledge for a year.
Liv: seriously
Rachel: Well, could we go beekeeping
Liv: seriously?
Rachel: YES! Local honey helps hayfever. Not that I get hayfever.
Liv: Well, I know the beekeeper at Hackney City farm..
Rachel: Of course you do. I don't want a whole course or anything. It might just be an afternoon fad. Or I could well become a beekeeper.

Forget Black Swan's swirl of melodramatic trash. In fact, forget all preconceptions about dance. Watch Wim Wenders' Pina.
