Car Crash with a Chance of Meatballs

or: Searching for Stanley (Part 2) Let’s tell it like it is: Tony was hard to pin down for a time, a place, or any specifics of the part he intended to play in the pre-prep he suggested ‘we’ could do in order that this Car Crash Cooking Live (Festive Special Edition) might sound like ‘a good idea’. I was, to say the least, reluctant – I may even have told him that his baby was going to be ugly. I sure as hell pointed out that there were easier alternatives...

Gingerbread in the Village (a recipe)

Thanks to our lovely visitors in Wimbledon Village last Sunday – we had a whirlwind of a day celebrating #christmasinthevillage @wimbledonvillage, and hope all those who participated enjoyed the sessions we hosted with @villageschoolofdance @monkeymusic_wimbledon and #wimbledonbabysitting. The gingerbread we were offering – freshly made in house in our working display kitchens – flew out like hot cakes! We had so many requests to share the recipe that we’re sharing our ‘quick and dirty’ scribblings of the ingredients and method used (full words and more legible typescript available from our...

Searching For Stanley

Car Crash Risotto Milanese As far as Tony is concerned, the search started in Rome with a chance viewing of Episode Two. He shared the news via a (linked) headline: “Stanley Tucci: the flirty hero of foodie TV you need in your life” – together with a note that I was “going to love this”. As far as I was concerned, the search began when notes started dropping from abroad, early this year, that this series was very much on the US food-world’s radar – they were stanning our man...

Choc chip cookies: a recipe

This recipe comes courtesy of the generosity of a certain Cyril Lignac (@cyril_lignac), responding to an early case of a lockdown blues by doing what he’s best known for (baking sweet stuff), and – with the aid of his iphone – streaming the session Live from his Paris apartment – for the benefit of all those locked in at home who cared to join him, seeking consolation, connection, comfort and – of course! – cookies. It was the charmingly analogue, amateur precursor for what eventually became a hugely popular national...

Outside Living

“Extending our living spaces into the garden is not really a trend, it’s a way of life.” We need this balance of nature to offset our fast-paced lifestyles and technology overload.

Pop in and ask about our ‘outdoor’ products to create your new outside space. Clever choices of materials and finishes play an important role in making indoor...

How can we give you a better life?

How? you may well ask! Our aim at Day True is to design you a kitchen that takes into account all the skills and habits you already know about yourself but may not have thought too much about, or thought that we would be interested to ask about. What’s the first corner of the room that you turn to in the morning? What’s the limit that tests your last nerve at the end of a day? And, in between those two extremes, a host of mundane, humane, glorious detail we...

Car Crash Cook-a-long

The next in our series of #chefsinrealkitchens is inspired by Jason Atherton; holed up, we believe, somewhere near Wandsworth Common. Like the rest of us, his kitchen is in isolation (just him and his family). His IG handles and hashtags, should you wish to pay a ‘virtual’ call, are @_jasonatherton #socialkitchenisolation. Our MD Tony, has been watching with a certain dedication, and made the call on Friday that, not only would he join Jason’s first ‘cook-a-long-IG-live’ (7pm, Pork Milanese, with crushed potatoes, capers, cornichons, and home-made mayonnaise on the menu)...

Award Winning Design

2019 started with a bang. We won two KBB Review design Awards for bathroom design projects AND we just opened our third and biggest showroom in the heart of Wimbledon Village  so we can’t really complain! ??? Winning two design awards on the same evening is pretty rare and we are very proud. The two projects were very different, one a loft in East London  and a whole House in Bayswater. Different tastes for different lifestyles. Each one unique and inspirational. Winning was really important for us, it’s always great to have industry recognition...
