It looks like the idle aristocrat has gone out of style! Take Eugenia Martinez de Irujo y Fitz-James Stuart, Duchess of Montoro, for instance. She was the only daughter of the late Doña Cayetana (María del Rosario Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y Silva), the very popular 18th Duchess of Alba who owned palaces and landed estates galore.

After being closed for almost two decades, the iconic Eero Saarinen designed TWA terminal at JFK has re-opened as a boutique hotel.   For former employees, myself included, it was a thrill to be at the ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 15 and see how the terminal  has been repurposed and looking so good.

LA BOLA won’t cook unless with the best of ingredients. And the most important ingredient of all is the love with which generations of the LA BOLA clan cook for their guests. Is it any wonder that LA BOLA's famous cocido madrileño has outlived the Savoy dynasty who, in the person of Amadeo I, came to Spain to rule at the same time that Candida Santos founded Taberna LA BOLA in Madrid (1870).
