    These are the best lanterns ever – and the UK has, I’m pleased to say, very largely welcomed Obama. Let’s hope he makes a real difference. Love your blog.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
