Would you harm yourself just to get at someone else? Spite is in us all, but there are unexpected benefits to itOn a memorable episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, the curmudgeonly protagonist Larry David is angered by the lukewarm lattes at his local café so he opens a “spite” café. It is an identical coffee shop and right next door, but everything is cheaper. He runs it at a personal financial loss, but is driven by the thought of putting his neighbour out of business. It is magnificently mean-spi...

Nigel Slater’s recipes for mushroom soup, and edamame fritters

Here’s how to bring cheer to soggy winter days with hot soup and frittersThe damp days of early autumn send me, spoon in hand, in search of soup.

Made with standard brown mushrooms, it is a cheap enough recipe, b...
