• Making Chapattis

    February 10th 2013 katie

    Since doing an Indian cooking course and having a gander at the beautiful Prashad cook book, my home curry-making has definitely gone up a notch. In particular, Prashad’s mattar paneer is sure to become a weekday dinner staple: it’s so quick and easy yet authentic-tasting, uses storecupboard/freezer ingredients (did you know paneer freezes?!) and feels…

They’re also running a caption competition on Best Coast’s own lolcat pic to win tour tickets (USA only). Share this entry with this shortURL: http://whatkatiedo.es/bestcoast

  • Japan videos

    July 27th 2010 katie

    I forgot until quite recently that I took a load of video footage on my E-P1 when we were in Japan last year. Josh is editing it all into a music video at the moment as he’s much more au fait with this kind of thing than me – my ‘skillz’ extend to a tiny…

  • Fantastic Mr Fox

    October 19th 2009 katie

    I saw Fantastic Mr Fox at the weekend, a special gala as part of the BFI Film Festival. I’m not usually a big fan of ‘kids’ films but being directed by my favourite, Wes Anderson, I thought it was worth seeing. It most definitely is; it’s full of Wes’s charm, humour and idiosyncratic design (love…

  • Hello Kitty’s 35th birthday

    October 5th 2009 katie

    Aww, everyone’s favourite cute little white no-mouthed cat turns 35 this year! Check out this sweet animated video of her evolution (she hasn’t changed much, apart from the outfits). I’m still trying to convince Josh it’d be a great idea to visit her theme park Sanrio Puroland while we’re in Tokyo, although I guess a…

  • Marina and the Diamonds

    June 26th 2009 katie

    I’m really loving the sound of new UK artist Marina and the Diamonds. There’s whiffs of influence from Kate Bush and Regina Spektor, but plenty of uniqueness to set her apart. This video above for her new single I Am Not a Robot is pretty rad too, co-directed by photographer Rankin. Listen to more on…
