COOK'S CULINARY CRISIS
Astragal's stomach is still churning from the rather suspicious moussaka-cumlasagna dished up in Venice at the launch of Jeremy Till's British Pavilion - it took a lot of Bellinis to wash that taste out. But it seems Astragal wasn't the only one to suffer a gastronomic disaster while in 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 the ight back to London greedily tucking in to Cup-a-Soup and Pringles.
