The heavenly comfort of truffle crisps | Food
I’m also disappointed that Grace Dent’s guests weren’t wowed by her comfort food (they told me about childhood, class, love and more: what I learned from Comfort Eating, November 26). These two items will knock out their epicurean socks: toast spread with crispy peanut butter and a thin layer of tomato ketchup; and Rubio truffle chips, made in Spain, or is it heaven?

The Great Sex Guide takes up two printed pages (Secret of Good Sex? It’s Not What You Thinkâ¦, November 26), while Feast deserves over 30 pages. Does this reflect readers’ priorities or do we just need more help with cooking than with sex?
I disagree with Rabbi Margaret Jacobi (Letters, November 26). Ralph McTell recorded Streets of London about the homeless in 1969. I slept on the streets for two nights in 1966. It might not have been so visible back then.
Regarding the Aurora and Terra Nova logs (report of November 24), it is unlikely that they were written in quill pen. Fountain pens were invented in the 19th century and were in common use around the time Ernest Shackleton and Robert Falcon Scott were exploring Antarctica.
Despite the grandeur of the houses with remarkable stairways (Fantasy house hunt, November 26), my wife and I, both in the mid-1970s, would appreciate an article on houses with elevators.
