FOOD  – YOUR WEEKEND MEAL

Pan-Roasted Brined Pork Chop

This one requires a little advance planning—the chop needs to sit in a brine solution for 8 hours—but the result is worth it. These are some of the juiciest pork chops we’ve ever made.


GETAWAY

On the Slopes

From large ski areas to more exclusive locales, enjoy your downhill experience while staying at popular ski resorts. Perhaps instead of downhill, you would prefer to immerse yourself in winter’s paradise by hiking along snow-covered trails with snowshoes or being led by sled dogs!

FASHION

It’s shopping, but not as you know it. Discover one-of-a-kind experiences, world-class dining and luxury brands at the department store that started it all, Selfridges Oxford Street, London.

DESIGN

These Italian Sisters and Design-World Stars Will Make You Want to Redecorate

An apartment in New York City combines earthen browns and soft beiges in a well-lit space.

In another Milanese home, traditional elements, like the parquet flooring, pair with contemporary design, noted in the geometric table.

Drawing on different design backgrounds, the duo collaborate to create contemporary spaces with sumptuous flair, oftentimes working with Italian furniture and finishings, like Murano glass and Florentine bronze.

ARTS & CULTURE

Here’s How Buckingham Palace Does Christmas Decorations

A 15ft Nordmann fir tree from Great Windsor Park stands in the palace’s Marble Hall, with two smaller firs in the Grand Entrance.

Twinkling fairy lights and crown-shaped decorations adorn the large pines, while the gilt bronze balustrade on the Grand Staircase has been covered with a colorful garland. It’s safe to say there’s no “less is more” approach in this household.
