Racing: Pitman's souffle ready to serve

PRINCEFUL IS "like a souffle that is cooked and ready to be served", according to Jenny Pitman, his trainer. Unfortunately, the pudding-like ground at Ascot may prevent the dish of the day appearing on tomorrow's menu at the Berkshire course.

Words: Hostess

Children taken to parties used to be told to behave and to be sure to say a nice thank you to the hostess, most likely remembered as a stately dame with what the French would call beaucoup de monde au balcon. Later, hostesses presided (always the word) over the afternoon teacakes and scones, and were gracious. Modern hostesses of this sort have little in common with the wide-eyed 17-year-old "Soho hostess" who, according to reports, befriended the Tory MP Piers Merchant, apart from the name they share.

THE BEND FOR HOME: A Memoir by Dermot Healy, Picador pounds 16

Letter: Sweet note

Michael Bateman's "New Zealand" national pudding, pavlova, is anything but ("The first fruits of Kiwi cuisine", Review, 30 June). Not only is kiwi fruit not "de rigueur as topping for pavlova" but this alien fruit hadn't been heard of when pavlova was invented. What is de rigueur for pavlova is passion-fruit pulp, which cuts through the sweetness of this confection. A confection which is a stranger to the ice-cream sandwiched between slabs of meringue illustrated. The true pavlova starts with a meringue case filled (not topped) with soft fruits, topped with cream and the passion fruit pulp.

Letter: Vocal opposition to Portillo over the causes of disquiet for the majority

Sir: I was pleased to see that Michael Portillo has said that the Conservative Party is for the quiet majority that plays its part in the community ('Portillo speech suggests play for leadership', 23 April). I live in a village populated by the quiet majority, a small rather unremarkable village in North Warwickshire.
