Cook’s culinary crisis

Astragal’s stomach is still churning from the rather suspicious moussaka-cum-lasagna which was dished up at the launch lunch of Jeremy Till’s British Pavilion out in Venice. It took an awful lot of Bellinis to wash that taste out… And it seems Astragal was not the only one to suffer a gastronomic disaster while visiting the supposed culinary hotspot of Italy. HOK’s latest recruit Peter Cook had obviously reached desperate measures after a five-day diet of mediocre canapés. He was spotted on an Easyjet flight back to London greedily tucking in to a Cup-a-Soup and some Pringles. The Gutter has photographic evidence… Buon appetito!
