Salon hosted its first fabulous Christmas party on the 8th December. We had our first pop-up fair trade bazaar abuzz with Salon hostess (Niki, Juliet and Helen) who had created a visual baccanalian feast for the eyes, candleabra and pomegranates bedecked tables, the room bathed in pink light and candlelight.

November saw Salon taking a train to Grand Sensual. For your delectation we had Sara Jayne Staines OBE, known by her first name in the finest chocolate houses in the capital. She is an expert in chocolate, from its dark history to the three hundred different notes found in the cocoa bean confectionery, from cherry to orange to cloves and tobacco. Sara taught us about taste of the most sensual kind, taking us through a structured chocolate tasting, and leading us through sweet, sour, salt and bitter, in pursuit of umami, the elusive fifth taste. Does it exist? Are you sensual enough to find it?

Thanks to everyone who came and to our fabulous speakers: Iain McGilchrist who came down from Scotland to explain the battle in our brain that is between Master and Servant, top literary agent Clare Conville who reviewed the Booker long list and told us what to read and who she thinks will win and Professor Michael Brookes explained why science is more rock-n-roll than, er, rock-n-roll.

This Salon certainly didn't Bohr us, because we had Manjit Kumar, physicist, philosopher and writer of Quantum, a book designed to help you understand the actual secrets of the universe. He came along to Salon to explain quantum theory in half an hour. Yes, it can be done, he did it.

Up first art historian Roz Whyte who runs a business creating bespoke tours of London's art and cultural establish- ments. She gave us a half hour virtual tour of the art highlights in the capital over the summer.

Taking a sensual, yet twisted, approach to love, writer Jessica Fellowes talked about psychopaths: who they are and how to deal with them, and she should know having just finished writing her book: 'The Devil You Know - How to Spot the Psycho in your Life'.
