Thanks for your kind words, we use LED fittings these days so these are 8w warm white LED fittings. If you were using Halogen, 20w MR16 globe would be more than ample. We purchase our light fittings through http://www.gan.com.au/ Hope this helps.

6. Reserve wine. I don’t go quite as far as Lawson and drain the dregs of my guests’ wineglasses, but there’s no need to throw away not-quite-empty bottles of wine — I can’t bear to think of good wine going down the drain. Put the bottles back in the fridge for the next few days or freeze them for giving sauces and stocks a flavor boost — again, ice cube trays are useful for this.
