A typical clan gathering with the Boxers is a beautifully rambunctious scene: events are typically held either in West Sussex or in the sumptuous private dining room of the Grade II-listed Georgian Brunswick House where Jackson Boxer opened his restaurant 12 years ago. “It’s a wonderful, anarchic kind of shed full of chandeliers,” says the chef-patron.
He’s fixing the food in the kitchen. His mother, painter Kate, is entertaining two of his four children, Ruscha, five, and Marlowe, three, who are skittering about underneath the table. Their mother, fashion designer Melissa, a Pre-Raphaelite beauty with long dark hair, nurses nine-week-old Dima in her arms. Dressed in a 1970s maxi dress, Roma, nine, is dancing about the room while Jackson’s father, Italo Deli owner Charlie, plays the fiddle.Jackson Boxer and son Marlowe © Lily Bertrand-Webb Melissa Thompson with her baby son Dima © Lily Bertrand-Webb Suckling pig served with chicory salad, roast potatoes and baked fennel © Lily Bertrand-Webb
It’s bohemian but with backbone, as you might expect from the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of one of the cooking world’s grande dames, Arabella Boxer. “Jackson was making up recipes and creating recipe books as soon as he could write,” says Kate. Adds Jackson: “Having this kind of lovely, joyful celebration of each other and food is kind of intrinsic to our family. My interest in food was partly genuine greed but also partly an emotional hunger for this magical childhood that Mum and Dad created for me and my brother.”Jackson and Melissa’s daughter Roma in the private dining room at Brunswick House © Lily Bertrand-Webb Kate Boxer with her granddaughter Roma © Lily Bertrand-Webb
The suckling pig is brought out, surrounded by fennel (“a happy pairing”). “There’s something very, very primal about presenting the table with an entire animal cooked slowly and lovingly,” says Jackson. “It speaks to that sense of a heritage celebration. Big, lavish, triumphal to place on the table. No one does it, but it’s really easy and fun to do. You just put it in for four or five hours, and then whack up the temperature at the end to crisp the skin.”
That sense of tradition echoes as the children dash around in their vintage finds. “I gravitate to historical clothing,” says Melissa. “I love Victorian, Edwardian, ’20s, ’30s and ’70s, then finding a way of combining them.” The aesthetic is matched on the table: crockery, cutlery and candlesticks are a mix of junk-shop finds, designer-maker and heirloom pieces – some chipped, laughs Kate, all loved.Kate and Charlie Boxer at the table with three of their grandchildren, Dima, Ruscha and Roma, plus Melissa © Lily Bertrand-WebbJackson and Marlowe in the Brunswick House restaurant kitchen © Lily Bertrand-Webb
Glasses of wine are topped up and the golden crispy roasted potatoes continually nibbled. But pudding never quite materialises. “Often it’s an afterthought,” confesses Jackson. Everyone agrees that Charlie is the king of dessert – incredible crumbles, steamed puddings and rice puddings – while Kate is queen of autumnal pastries. But no one seems to notice there’s nothing sweet to eat today. They’re too busy chatting, dancing and playing.

“Just like we drew it up,” the seven-time Super Bowl quarterback said after throwing a pair of touchdown passes in the final three minutes Monday night to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rally from a 13-point deficit and beat the New Orleans Saints 17-16. "We’ve had a lot of games come down to the end," Brady said. The last-place Saints missed out on an opportunity to pull into a tie for second with the Falcons. “I’ve got to go into a bye week knowing that we should have beat this team," Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan said. “Tom Brady is Tom Brady.2 hours ago The Quad City Times
World Cup Viewer’s Guide: 2 Quarterfinals Places LeftQatar: The final day of the round of 16 concludes Tuesday at the World Cup when Morocco faces Spain, and Portugal goes head-to-head with Switzerland for the final two spots in the quarterfinals. Spain opened the World Cup with a 7-0 win over Croatia, followed by a 1-1 draw with Germany. “We are not going to lose focus on the goal, which is to win the World Cup,” Gavi said. But there’s a blemish on his record — a fat zero in goals scored at the World Cup in the knockout stage. He heads into what is likely his final World Cup to play a Swiss team that hasn’t made it to the quarterfinals since 1954.2 hours ago The Times of Bengal
An off the cuff tweet by Elon Musk has left Bulgarians over the moon, hoping the world's richest man may be planning to visit the EU's poorest region. But the online frenzy has delighted Vladislav Terziiski, who took the picture of the spectacular Belogradchik rocks and its fortress some five years ago. 'Three-day wonder'The Belogradchik fortress awaits its "messiah", political scientist Dimitar Ganev joked on Bulgarian television. Tourism numbers increased sharply after the Belogradchik Rocks were named as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature poll by a Swiss foundation in 2007. So far Musk has remained uncharacteristically silent, ignoring numerous questions on Twitter from the Bulgarian media asking him to confirm or deny a visit.2 hours ago Hindustan Times
“Just like we drew it up,” Brady said smiling to a laughing crowd of reporters. Nonetheless, Brady found Godwin again for nine yards to give the Bucs a chance from the Saints’ six-yard line. That’s when Brady waited for White to win his matchup on linebacker Demario Davis and stretched his body into the end zone. Ryan Succop’s extra point was good and Brady added his 44th game-winning drive to his future Hall of Fame resume. But the Bucs sit atop a dreadful NFC South division, and separate themselves a bit from the pack with this win.4 hours ago Vigour Times
TAMPA — During their knuckle-whitening comeback Monday night, the Bucs finally wiped away one of the most embarrassing blemishes in their recent history. Tom Brady’s 1-yard scoring pass to Cade Otton with three minutes to play snapped a streak of 12 consecutive quarters without a home touchdown against the Saints. Judge, whose 62 home runs this past season eclipsed Roger Maris’ 61-year-old AL record, was spotted on the sideline in a red Mike Evans No. Perhaps not coincidentally, Saints veteran quarterback Andy Dalton exploited busted coverages twice in a three-play span in the second quarter.

The conservative-majority US Supreme Court appeared poised Monday to rule in favor of a Christian graphic designer who refuses to make wedding websites for same-sex couples. The case, one of the most consequential being heard by the nation's highest court this term, pits free speech rights against anti-discrimination laws. In the 2018 case, the Supreme Court voted 7-2 that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission had displayed anti-religious hostility toward the baker, thus violating his constitutional rights. The court, however, did not squarely address the issue of whether a business can decline to serve gays and lesbians on free speech or religious grounds. The Supreme Court is expected to deliver its ruling before the end of June.7 hours ago Hindustan Times
