Plug Into BFI Player
The British Film Institute has shut its Southbank hub for the foreseeable, but its Netflix-style online player is running as normal. You’ve got three options. First, rent recent releases from £3.50 a pop – look out for The Day Shall Come, comedy genius Chris Morris’s follow-up to Four Lions. Second, you could take out a subscription that’ll get you access to a vast catalogue of classic and cult cinema, including curated selections from the likes of Mark Kermode and Tilda Swinton. Finally, you can peruse the free archive – where, unlike YouTube, you’ll find rabbit holes you’ll actually want to fall into.
Experiment With The Curry Guy
Dan Toombs is the Curry Guy and he published his latest cookbook this month. The Curry Guy Light has more than 100 recipes for – you guessed it – light, fresh curries to make at home. Lower in carbs and cals than traditional Indian dishes, they can still give you that hit of warm, hearty dinner you’ve been craving. For traditional recipes using chicken and lamb, as well as inspiration for creating your own restaurant-style starters, check out his website – samosas, bhajis and naans are all there.
