WARMING BOOZE BLOWOUT
#3 GLöGG

SEVENTEEN DECEMBER, TWO THOUSAND AND FOURTEEN

As FANTASTIC MAN’s resident Scandinavian chef MAGNUS attests, the Swedes take their national version of mulled wine – glögg – very seriously at this time of year. In fact, glögg made with red wine is the main ingredient in many a Swede’s social life throughout the month of December. Should you happen to be in Sweden during the winter months, try to get your hands on a bottle of BLOSSA-brand special edition glögg. Its formulation changes dramatically year-on-year, and the 2014 vintage is infused with lavender. Failing that, here’s a special edition glögg that can be achieved at home in minutes. It’s unusual in that its base is white wine. Don’t bother with anything too fancy, though. Unnecessary!

- 1 bottle fruity white wine
- 2 whole cloves
- 1 or 2 clementines, peeled and cut in half
- 1 vanilla pod, sliced
- 0.5g saffron
- 3 tbsp honey
- 50g sugar

1. Put all ingredients in a saucepan and heat for about 15 minutes. Do not let it boil! 2. It can be enjoyed more or less immediately, but if you let it sit in the pan overnight you’ll get a much fuller flavour. Facebook  Twitter

NEW
TWENTY

AUTUMN & WINTER 2014

And so, the curtain rises on a new issue of FANTASTIC MAN – the 20th edition, for Autumn & Winter 2014. Indeed, the mysterious mustachioed figure on its cover is double Oscar-winning Mr. CHRISTOPH WALTZ, an acting Austrian who, in defiance of Hollywood convention, has risen to international prominence in his sixth decade. In a vastly entertaining interview, the star of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, DJANGO UNCHAINED, CARNAGE and now BIG EYES discusses the advantages and pitfalls of being a late bloomer. Elsewhere in this well-rounded issue, the chronicler of international fashion commerce Mr. IMRAN AMED is profiled, as is the exceptional Canadian author and artist Mr. DOUGLAS COUPLAND, plus the phenomenon of French-language cinema Mr. XAVIER DOLAN. The latter showcases his precocious versatility in an array of ravishing outfits. Speaking of matters fashionable, a definitive guide to the new season’s luscious WINTER COATS is proudly presented, and revered British critic Mr. NICHOLAS DE JONGH prescribes unusual getups to be worn for an opening night at the THEATRE. Those yearning for a cherished but DISCONTINUED PERFUME will hopefully find solace in a nostalgic reportage entitled ‘EXTINCT’. There’s plenty more besides, of course. Order now
