Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one of the most celebrated stage productions of the past decade. Opening in London's West End in 2016, on Broadway in 2018 and in Melbourne in 2019 - and with more productions worldwide still to come (including San Francisco later this year) - the play has smashed records, collected countless rave reviews and awards, and captivated audiences night after night. Now readers are invited behind the scenes to experience the show's journey to the stage - from the earliest phases of development with producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender, to the crafting of the eighth Harry Potter story with J.K. Rowling, director John Tiffany and playwright Jack Thorne, and to the gathering of an extraordinary team of artists and actors together to bring this new part of Harry's story to life.

I cook big curries like this a lot for my friends and family and they’re always a hit. They’re also a good way of introducing people to plant-based meals, as a curry feels familiar. This one is a particular favourite, as it’s got so much flavour. The squash is tossed with curry powder and roasted until tender with some red peppers, it’s then tossed into a pan with more spices – sautéed cumin and mustard seeds, and some garlic and onion, which then simmer with galangal, tomato purée, ground ginger, lime juice and coconut milk.
