HARRIET RUSSEL – artist
how is your bed? and your cradle when you were baby? It has a dark wooden frame, an old horsehair mattress and a blue eiderdown. I have sheets and blankets but all my friends have duvets.
which kind of meal you do not like? which is your favourite dish that your mom prepare to you?
There are lots of vegetables I am very fussy about – carrots, leeks, artichokes, mushrooms etc etc. I use to dislike a lot of the school meals, probably because they aren’t as good as my Mum’s cooking! I love anything she makes – especially Shepherd’s pie and Toad in the hole (sausages cooked in batter) Also macaroni cheese with peas.
your favorite book to read? I love the Babar books, Topsy and Tim and Enid Blyton’s famous five and Mallory Towers.
have you got an imaginary friend? No. I have a sister so I don’t think I really needed one. We have lots of dolls and toys who all have different personalities, and even speak with different accents!
which food did you cook first? I remember making up some recipes when I was really small, one of them was ‘Ribena biscuits’ It is basically Ribena, a blackcurrant squash drink, mixed with flour and water, and then baked in the oven. There is a variation made with orange squash. I think they are pretty disgusting! In fact, I don’t think my sister and I ate really them, but instead offered them to my parents!
