Raffish iconoclast.

Grace Dent reviews Carousel

standard.co.uk — If I have one 2015 Grace and Flavour resolution - yes, it's time to begin planning - I want to become less 'pop-up' phobic. Just because a person doesn't own an actual, real, bricks and mortar restaurant and is operating instead out of their auntie's hair salon, or an abandoned minicab office, I should not attend tearfully.

Band Aid 30: You know it must be Christmas when everyone's shouting about a charity single

independent.co.uk — Band Aid 30 is the ever-giving gift for thinkpiece scribes, chucking up themes of celebrity smuggery, white entitlement, askew perceptions of Africa, and whether charitable acts should be beyond criticism. One problem Geldof has here is that no one with an opinion on Band Aid is right or wrong.

Grace Dent: Isn't it obvious why Cosby's accusers stayed silent up until now?

nzherald.co.nz — America is currently experiencing with Bill Cosby what I want to call a Savile moment. Namely, the point where historic hearsay about a well-loved man - so disturbing and unpalatable - New Zealand Herald

Bill Cosby: Isn’t it obvious why his accusers have stayed silent up until now?

independent.co.uk — America is currently experiencing with Bill Cosby what I want to call a "Savile" moment. Namely, the point where historic hearsay about a well-loved man - so disturbing and unpalatable that no one wants to believe it - has gathered voice to the point it is impossible to ignore.

If there’s nothing in the Westminster paedophile ring stories, then prove it

independent.co.uk — Over the weekend, more startling - or more accurately revolting, jarring, nightmarish - allegations were made about an alleged 1970s and 80s Westminster paedophile ring. Here is a story that over 2014 has refused to die.

Gordon Ramsay and the great restaurant table-booking nightmare

independent.co.uk — I am keen to find the name of the industrious master fraudster who sabotaged the opening night of Gordon Ramsay's new restaurant. Ramsay's claims - on the Jonathan Ross Show - that 100 no-shows on the launch night of the Heddon Street Kitchen have more than piqued my interest.

Grace Dent: 100 things about me and Twitter

theguardian.com — When the writer joined the social network three years ago, she used it to share random thoughts about TV and life. Since then, she has become a Twitter addict. In an extract from her new book, she explains what she loves - and hates - about it

Grace Dent reviews Sea Containers

standard.co.uk — The first 15 or so times I heard about Sea Containers, the new South Bank restaurant inside the Mondrian London hotel, it floated in my subconscious as merely a working title. No one, I was sure, would call a restaurant something so bloody awful.

Grace Dent: Sex can still be fun even if you are trying for a baby

nzherald.co.nz — Warning: Adult content - New Zealand Herald

In the future sex should still be fun - even if you ARE trying for a baby

independent.co.uk — By 2050, we will be having sex purely for fun - hooray! - and not for boring procreational purposes. All the vital but arduous baby-making business will be conducted in clinics via IVF. These are the predictions of Professor Carl Djerassi, 91, one of the developers of the contraceptive Pill.
