What is Benedict's favourite food, drink ,books and hobby ?

Which London shops do you rely on?

I love Beyond Retro and charity shops for everything a man needs, from shoes to suits. I rely on sample sales at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane for T-shirts, original prints and one-offs. For food, I go to an Italian delicatessen called Giacobazzi’s near South End Green, Hampstead. For books, I visit Daunt’s and Foyles but I also love taking a book up to the fifth floor at Waterstone’s in Piccadilly and looking out across the skyline.

What’s the best meal you’ve had in London?

At Blacks, the private members’ club in Soho, because they’ve got a diverse seasonal menu with an Italian influence. I enjoy everything from the foie gras and terrines to the lamb roasts and offal.


What was the last book you read, and name some of your favourite authors?

Michael Darlow’s terrific biography of Terence Rattigan. Nabakov, Dostoyevsky, Dickens, Paul Auster, William Boyd, Ian McEwan, Martin Amis, Julian Barnes, Nancy Mitford, AS Byatt, Beryl Bainbridge, Hilary Mantel, Andrea Levy… Must get on and read more of them!!!
