    FT Weekend: Eat, drink and be merry

    FT Weekend: Eat, drink and be merry

    What do you think of when you hear the words ‘British food’? This week, to celebrate the FT Weekend Magazine’s food and drink holiday special, we’re digging in. Food critic Tim Hayward praises modern British cuisine and challenges his compatriots to be proud of their food culture. Our team visits one of the last standing eel and pie shops in London to explore how culinary traditions survive. Then, Lilah learns a great holiday cocktail from one of Brooklyn’s best mixologists, Shannon Mustipher, author of Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails and the first African-American bartender to write a cocktail recipe book in 100 years.

    Joe Biden has nominated Jay Powell to serve a second term as chair of the Federal Reserve, opting for continuity as the US economy grapples with persistently high inflation and a patchy labour market recovery; China’s hypersonic weapons test in July included a technological advance that enabled it to fire a missile as it approached its target travelling at least five times the speed of sound, a capability no country has previously demonstrated and one that caught Pentagon scientists off guard.

    FT Weekend: The art of conversation, with Ruby Wax

    FT Weekend is a weekly Saturday show that brings the best of our Life & Arts journalism into audio form. You can follow it on its own feed at 'FT Weekend'. This week, we talk about conversation.

Lilah and US Managing Editor Peter Spiegel chase the mystery of who actually wrote the US constitution along with esteemed historian William Ewald. And Ruby Wax, the iconic celebrity interviewer of the 90s, tells us how she got stars good and bad—from the Spice Girls to Bill Cosby—to open up and show us who they really are.
