10 Jun 6:59am Nigel Slater’s lemon thyme water ice and pistachio cookie recipes
The Guardian
Soothing, sweet and piquant desserts to round off a lovely summer lunch After lunch, the table still scattered with crumbs, squeezed lemons and the shrapnel from the shells of a pile of grilled langoustines, we brought out fruit water ices to eat in the late afternoon shade. There was a sorbet of apricots, barely frozen, the colour of the setting sun, and another vivid with lemon and thyme. The sorbets cooled our tongues after the heat of the shellfish and for five minutes there was blissful silence. You don’t need an ice cream machine to make sorbets, but having access to one will give a smoother texture. If you haven’t got one, just remember to give the fruit purée a stir every hour as it freezes. Folding the frozen surface and those sparkling outer edges that are first to freeze into the middle will produce an ice akin to one which has been churned. Grind the pistachios till they are roughly the same texture as ground almonds

Why Laird Hamilton is still making waves 10 Jun 4:00am Why Laird Hamilton is still making waves
The Guardian
Laird Hamilton found fame and fortune surfing the world’s biggest breakers. But, as he tells Tim Lewis, his daredevil streak could easily have led him down more dangerous paths as a young man. Plus, he reveals his life secrets for staying ahead of the curve Laird Hamilton has ridden many of the tallest, heaviest, fastest and longest waves ever conquered by a human being. Even people who don’t like him – of which there are a few – have to concede that he’s one of the greatest big-wave surfers of all time, if not the greatest. Even if you don’t have the slightest interest in surfing, there’s a decent chance you’ll have seen mesmerising stills or footage of Hamilton streaking down waves the size of a seven-storey building or, somehow, miraculously emerging from the wreckage of one that has curled over and smashed with the force of a Hollywood explosion. But Hamilton, who is now 54, and who has been catching waves for half a century now (yes, he started when he was three years old) is both the archetypal surfer and not – his wife Gabrielle Reece, a professional volleyball player and model, notes that he has never said the word “dude” in his life. In a sport famed for its laid-back vibe, he has always been driven, even ruthless. Hamilton has become a millionaire many times over, splitting his time between Malibu, California and Kaua’i, Hawaii, because he has become that most un-surfing thing: a brand. You can wear

I was 19, gay and ready to be ‘cured’ by conversion therapy 10 Jun 3:00am I was 19, gay and ready to be ‘cured’ by conversion therapy
The Guardian
Born into a Baptist family, Garrard Conley was sent for conversion therapy to ‘treat’ his sexual identity. As his brave and bracing memoir is adapted into a film, he reveals why he still believes he is ‘one of the lucky ones’ Here’s what Garrard Conley had to surrender the morning he arrived at the Love in Action facility in Memphis, Tennessee in 2004: his phone, his wallet, his driving licence and a Moleskine journal in which he wrote his short stories. A blond boy confiscated the journal and yanked a bunch of pages free from the binding. “And he said, in a voice free of emotion: ‘False Image’,” recalls Conley in

The secret shame of being a sober mother 10 Jun 2:00am The secret shame of being a sober mother
The Guardian
After the birth of her second child, Amelia Hill gave up drinking. Little did she realise that her simple lifestyle choice would carry such a social stigma I’ve got a dirty little secret: I’ve stopped drinking. I’m not an alcoholic. I don’t have an addictive personality. I’m in robust good health. I enjoy drinking. But after the birth of my second child three years ago, I became a sober mother. It wasn’t an obvious progression: I drank with the usual wanton enthusiasm before I became a mother. I continued drinking moderately throughout both my pregnancies and while breastfeeding my firstborn – sticking to the government advice that served previous generations perfectly well, that one or two drinks, once or twice a week, was OK. Advice that was suddenly changed in 2007 to a dictate of complete abstention on the basis of

Crashing my bike restores my faith in ordinary people 10 Jun 1:00am Crashing my bike restores my faith in ordinary people
The Guardian
Strangers are not always comforting, but a nasty bicycle accident brings out the best in the good citizens of Bristol I’m riding my bike through a tunnel, obsessively turning a thought over and over in my head, when my lack of attention causes me to clip the barrier separating the bike lane from the pedestrian lane, sending me crashing to the ground quite spectacularly. Why is this important? It’s because what happens afterwards is one of those rare moments that restores your faith in people. I’d recently been feeling unkind towards cyclists after one went through a red light and crashed into me and my child while we were crossing the road. The man cycled off, swearing at us for, I think, getting in his way even though we could clearly hear the beep-beep-beep of the green man. “Silly us,” I thought at the time. “It’s only our right of way.” 'You need to get back on the bike,' the schoolkid said. 'Don’t get the fear because of your crash. Do it'

10 Jun 1:00am A quick note to say… thanks to my friend who got me through university
The Guardian
Alex Barger, 29, an accountant from North Carolina, was glad he met Bob Schuster at college, who took him under his wing I grew up in rural Ohio. Looking for a fresh start and new experiences, I chose to go to university abroad and ended up at college in this country. It was quite daunting at first and, after the initial excitement wore off, I began to struggle a bit. I was a long way from my family and didn’t have a lot of support. It was quite tough.

9 Jun 7:05pm Designer Craig Green is changing how men dress today
The Guardian
The north Londoner combines outrageous artistic flair with a sound head for business Don’t tell Craig Green what he can’t do. When the menswear designer started a Central Saint Martins art foundation course a decade ago, he thought he’d end up being a painter or sculptor. But on the first day, someone advised the students that whatever they were considering, it was probably best not to do fashion. “They said: ‘Don’t bother trying because it’s really competitive and too many apply to do it.’” Green smiles, remembering. “I thought: ‘Don’t tell me what to do.’” Now Green is being lauded as the most exciting menswear designer in fashion. Since launching his own label in 2012, he’s won British Menswear Designer of the Year twice. His clothes are sold in the best stores in the world and have been worn by the likes of Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna (his men’s clothes have a cool, dedicated female following). You might have seen the costumes he made for Ridley Scott’s 2017 film
