Down in the woods with our top truffle dealer … and his dog
Zak Frost supplies England’s best restaurants. And he couldn’t do it without his truffle hound, StanleyMy train leaves Paddington and drones through the bleak industrial penumbra of London. I’m on my way to meet the planet’s top truffle dealer. He’s given me almost disturbingly precise instructions. Which train to take, what time, where to get off. “I will collect you from the station. When you arrive please walk out of the station, turn left immediately and go up the stairs. I’ll be in a black Mercedes.” I can’t say which station, beyond the fact that it’s somewhere in the Wiltshire Downs. I can’t say much. Not where he hunts, who he buys truffles from, or who he sells to, beyond the fact – obvious to anyone who stalks him on Instagram – that most of the London restaurants that care get their truffles from Zak Frost.In terms of volume, Frost is far from the planet’s top truffle dealer. The Italian heavyweights dwarf him. But in terms of the quality of his clients, his truffles, and even the information he puts out online, Frost is tops. Unlike dodgy dealers, he sends out an email with his price list every Monday, and he never haggles. “You’re not selling cheap tracksuits,” he says. “It’s a high-end, magical, mysterious ingredient. You have to have a bit of class.” Continue reading...

We put our child in charge for a day – it was both terrifying and freeing
One day a year our daughter does as she pleases and it’s always great fun… and a good education for us allWe call it her “in-charge day”. A day when our nine-year-old daughter Flora is in charge, and we are, effectively, hers to command. A day when all the traditional hierarchies between parent and child are reversed, when she can fulfil her fantasies, refuse to do anything she doesn’t want to and experience a taste of power, authority and absolute freedom.OK, not absolute freedom. There are some ground rules. She can’t do anything we deem to be unsafe or illegal. She can’t ask us to buy anything “too expensive” (we keep this part deliberately vague). And, this year, we realised we needed to add one more sentence of small print to our contract: she cannot purchase any new pets. Continue reading...

Readers reply: how would sport be different if everyone was allowed to dope?
The long-running series in which readers answer other readers’ questions on subjects ranging from trivial flights of fancy to profound scientific and philosophical conceptsHow would sport be different if everyone was allowed to dope? Johnny Addison, BonnyriggSend new questions to nq@theguardian.com.You would see a different set of winners: different people’s bodies react to performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) differently, so different genetic advantages would come to the fore.You would see some athletes dying through PED misuse. Drug testing (in the sports that have a proper testing regime) stops athletes pushing it as they get found out sooner; if it became the wild west you would see more people push it too far.Athletes post-career would probably have a lower quality of life.All of the above would mean there would probably be a much smaller pool of athletes willing to do what’s needed to compete.

The Gondoliers review – a picture-postcard Gilbert and Sullivan from Scottish Opera
Theatre Royal, GlasgowThe company celebrated its return to the Theatre Royal with some good old-fashioned – if not downright antiquated – fun and frivolityAfter the pandemic-related hiatus, there was a definite air of celebration as Scottish Opera returned to the Theatre Royal for its first live performances in its home base for 19 months. That they chose to mark this reopening with Gilbert & Sullivan is a little surprising. G&S is fun but also rather frivolous – or perhaps that was the very point? And The Gondoliers, for all it may be a particularly well unified and successful work overall, lacks the really ear-catching tunes of The Mikado. There are a couple that come close but “Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes” wouldn’t be in my top 10 G&S favourites.The familiar G&S tropes are present and correct: there’s a long-lost heir to a minor Spanish kingdom, languishing lovers and pompous aristocrats. There are the usual patter arias for principal buffoon, in this case the Duke of Plaza-Toro, a role which sees D’Oyly Carte stalwart Richard Stuart chewing up the stage. There is only a little modern updating, but when it does come it is slyly funny and definitely garners the most laughs of the night. Continue reading...
