The Gunpowder Plot conspirators. On November 5th, 1605, Robert Catesby led a group of conspirators (including the more famous Guy Fawkes) in a plot to assassinate King James I by blowing up Parliament. Guy Fawkes was responsible for igniting the barrels of gunpowder that the conspirators planned to use, giving rise to his being the best (often the only) known member of the plot in popular culture. The anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot is still known as Guy Fawkes Day (or Night).


Winter Nights Chilli

Winter Nights Chilli by Jamie Oliver from his book Comfort Food. When the weather’s closing in, it’s really great to tuck into a full-flavoured, hearty dish, and for me, a proper, rustic chilli rocks. The meat will fall apart and melt in your mouth. It’s moreish, spicy and with a clever contrasting salsa is a total joy.
