King of the dessert

  • Comment

Astragal had the pleasure last week of lunching with some of London’s most esteemed architectural hob-nobbers. Lord Rogers of Rogerside was there, along with Peter Bishop, Richard McCormac and former AJ editor Isabel Allen. However, once the main course was finished the assembled parties all but vanished, despite the promise of pear tart. Perhaps that’s how Rogers stays so active regardless of his advancing age? Well, rest assured dear readers, Astragal was going nowhere until that tart was laid before him. But given the option of a pear tart or still working at the age of 72, Astragal is in little doubt which he would choose. ‘I’ll have cream and ice-cream, please.’
