Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 5 minutes Serves 4, easily doubled or more

1 Put the bulgur into a large bowl. Pour in the hot stock then cover the bowl and leave to stand for 15 minutes. 2 While you wait, finely grate the zest from the lemons, then squeeze the juice from one (about 3 tbsp). Whisk the zest and juice with the olive oil and some salt and pepper.

Tabbouleh is a fresh, lively Middle Eastern salad of chopped herbs with plenty of lemon and bulgur wheat. It’s also delicious with goat’s cheese, fish, grilled meat and houmous amongst other things. I’ve added chickpeas to mine to make a more sustaining meal. If you can’t find bulgur, use cous cous instead.

3 Pick the leaves from the bunches of herbs, then finely chop. Trim and finely slice the onions. 2

Jane Hornby is an experienced food writer and cook. After training as a chef, she worked as Cookery Writer and Food Editor on the BBC’s bestselling Good Food magazine for five years. The magazine is renowned for its clear, step-by-step style and for its totally foolproof recipes. She has also edited several of the BBC Good Food’s successful 101 recipe books.

4 Drain the bulgur in a sieve, then return to the bowl. Add the dressing, herbs, onions, chickpeas and most of the pomegranate seeds. Stir well and season generously to taste.


5 When you’re ready to serve, put a griddle pan over a high heat. Cut the halloumi into slices about 1 cm (½ inch) thick. Cook the cheese for 2 minutes on each side or until it comes away easily from the ridges of the pan. A palette knife or fish slice will be handy to lift and turn the cheese. If you don’t have griddle pan, just fry the halloumi in a dry pan instead.

Praise for What to Cook and How to Cook It:

Grilled Halloumi with Pomengranate

7 Return the custard to a clean pan, then bring to the boil over a medium heat until thick and smooth, stirring all the time. Pour into a bowl, sprinkle the surface with a little sugar (this will stop a skin forming) and cool for 15 minutes. Cover and transfer to the refrigerator to cool completely.


8 When the fruit and custard have cooled, it’s time to layer up the trifle. Tear the brioche into pieces and put some into the bottom of a large serving bowl or trifle dish. Sprinkle with some of the liqueur and leave to soak in for a few seconds.



9 Spoon over some of the cooked fruit and its juice, then layer the rest of the brioche and fruit until it has all been used up and the brioche is totally covered in juice. Keep adding a little liqueur to the brioche as you go, saving 1 tbsp for later.

10 Give the custard a quick whisk to make sure it’s smooth, then spoon it on top of the fruit and spread to the edges. Chill the trifle for a few hours now if you have time (or overnight, if that’s helpful). 11 Whip the remaining cream with the rest of the vanilla and liqueur until thickened but not stiff. 12 Spoon the cream over the trifle, then scatter with the reserved currants and berries.

6. To get that first big break, you can’t just brag that you’re “great.” To get that stepping-stone job, you must prove you have talent. In the advertising world, you simply can’t just tell a pro that “I’m loaded with talent – just give me a chance.” I wish I had a nickel for every young person who tried that line on me! You must show some scintillating examples of work that shows your real potential. You must have a portfolio, but you can’t create one without some mentoring: Go to a school like The School of Visual Arts in New York City (staffed with excellent working art directors and copywriters who are passionate about teaching) and take some conceptual design courses, if only to prove to yourself that you truly have the right stuff.

So many employers say that young people entering the business are afraid to take chances, that they’re as conservative as the biggest stiffs in suits. But let’s face it: That’s the story of mankind. We live in fear of life, in fear of work, in fear of death. Students are taught to put together a “professional” portfolio rather than one that boggles the mind as you open it. Our best creatives protest loudly that they want to see kids take chances. Then, when they see a portfolio that’s a little off the wall, they say the kid lacks discipline, or that he or she is a flake. It’s confusing–kids are given no brave direction.I spent my life listening to people say, “George, be careful.” But being careful in our business is synonymous with doing uninspired work.

George Lois is the original Mad Man, the legendary Mr Big Idea and an acclaimed cultural provocateur who has profoundly changed the marketing and cultural world with his unique and inspirational cultural reasoning. Born in New York City in 1931, Lois studied at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn before setting off for Madison Avenue in the early 1950s, eventually joining Doyle Dane Bernbach in 1958. He went on to form four seminal New York advertising agencies and was a pioneer of the landmark Creative Revolution in American Advertising in the 1960s. Famous for his iconic Esquire covers from the 1960s and 70s, Lois has written nine books, including Phaidon’s $ellebrity in 2003, and won a plethora of awards. He lives in New York with his wife Rosie and continues to work as a marketing and creative entrepreneur. ‘George Lois. The one, the only; prodigy, enfant terrible, founder of agencies, creator of legends. The son of a Greek florist continues to attack his life and his craft with the energy and enthusiasm of a young Zorba. George Lois is a genuine advertising superhero.’ Wall Street Journal

Lou Dorfsman, design chief for CBS Radio and later the CBS Television Network for over forty years, once said, “In reality, creativity is the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul, an idea.” However, nothing comes from nothing. You must continuously feed the inner beast that sparks and inspires. I contend the DNA of talent is stored within the great museums of the world, and that those constant epiphanies enter the central nervous system and the deep recesses of the mind. The shock of an epiphany, a word derived from the Greek word epiphanie, has been an almost daily occurrence since I was a youngster, mystically echoing throughout much of my work. Museums are custodians of epiphanies. My spiritual day of worship is spent each Sunday at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, where I experience, without fail, the shock of the old. (In London, go to the British Museum; in France, visit the Louvre; you get the idea.) Mysteriously, the history of the art of mankind can inspire breakthrough conceptual thought, in any field.

Your portfolio should Ignite, Provoke, Shock, Kick Ass.

• Motivating, illuminating and above all, practical, these witty and audacious steps offer new insights into developing your talent for creative success • Essential reading for creative professionals, entrepreneurs, students or anyone who simply wants damn good advice!

7. To constantly inspire breakthrough conceptual thinking, go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, religiously, every Sunday.

14. Creativity is not created, it is there for us to find– it is an act of discovery. Great advertising comes down to The Big Idea, but I never create the ideas that characterize my work. I discover them – snared from the air as they float by me. ( Michelangelo said that a sculpture is imprisoned in a block of marble, and only a great sculptor can set it free.) Sounds mystical, perhaps, but after doing the requisite homework, to understand a product, its competitors, etc., ideas in advertising are ignited by the sparks and sounds of an understanding of 7,000 years of the history of mankind. Plato defined “Idea” (eidos) as a mental image. I don’t think I create that mental image in my head. I somehow see it floating by me and I reach out and pluck it. So if you’re trying to acheive greatness in any creative industry, go out into the world and sail the ocean blue and live a life of discovery.


29. A creative person without a sense of humor has a serious problem. A physicist, doctor, accountant, lawyer, garbage collector, etc. without a sense of humor can still be terrific at what they do. But a creative person who is humorless could never produce consistently great work in communicating with warmth and humanity to the vast majority of the populace. Humor in creativity is like humor in life. People often ask me,“Does humor work in advertising?,” but that’s a stupid question. Does anyone ever ask, “Does humor work in life ?” If humor is appropriate and funny ( if it ain’t funny, we ain’t talking humor), it should “work.” The question should be, How can you possibly create without humor?” Certainly, in all forms of communication, humor is a natural way to win someone’s heart. In examining my work, lectures, and books I have written over the years, it’s difficult to isolate “humor” as a category because it runs through almost everything I do – and through most of my waking hours. Humor disarms and makes one more accepting of thoughts and images that could be hard to take in serious discourse. Say something serious in a funny way, and you can win over people every time. Wit wakes up the mind. We’re talking serious comedy here!


75. In an age when heroes are villainized, and villains are lionized, a creative image can make an iconic statement.

24. You can be Cautious or you can be Creative (but there’s no such thing as a Cautious Creative).


A creative thinker must be fearless. If you’re more tentative than decisive, if you’re more cautious than creative, you’ll never be an innovative business leader, and certainly not a great visual communicator. A Cautious Creative is an oxymoron.

44. When I told the MTV gang that I would get Mick Jagger (for no dough) to pick up a phone and bark at a cable operator, I want my MTV, they thought I was a meshugenah.

MTV, now regarded as a “sure thing from the start,” was an abject failure after a full year of operation. But in 1982, when I got rock fans to call and yell, I want my MTV, cable companies called Warner Amex and begged them to stop running my commercials because they didn’t have an army of telephone operators to answer the calls. So the cable companies surrendered and put MTV on the air. A few weeks before, when I had presented my campaign idea to their execs, they insisted that no rock star would assist MTV because music publishers feared the MTV concept would kill their business, record companies swore they would never produce music videos, advertisers considered it a joke, ad agency experts snickered, and cable operators scoffed. But with one pleading phone call to London, I convinced Mick Jagger, and twenty years before the bad boy of Rock became a Knight of the Realm, I anointed Sir Mick the Patron Saint of MTV. Within a few weeks of the premiere of Mick Jagger picking up the phone and saying I want my MTV, every rock star in America was calling me, begging to scream I want my MTV to the world.

120. Work comfortably (as you can see) in a formal setting. Most people work formally in a comfortable setting. (The world is made up of people who insist that they want to exist in a “lived in” atmosphere. I say it’s a rationalization for being a slob.) I love people informality in a structured, precise surrounding.

No matter what stage you are in your career, use your creativity to stand up for our heroes, and protect our culture against the villains.

The lesson (which most ad agencies have never understood) is that great advertising can perform a marketing miracle!

In 1967, when Muhammad Ali refused induction into the army, he was widely condemned as a draft-dodger, and even a traitor. When he had converted to Islam, he had become a Black Muslim Minister, and Ali refused military service as a conscientious objector because of his new religious views. A federal jury sentenced him to five years in jail for draft evasion, and boxing commissions then stripped him of his title and denied him the right to fight, in the prime of his fighting years. This incredibly controversial Esquire cover, tying together the incendiary issues of the Vietnam War, race, and religion, became an instant iconic symbol of a period of nonviolent protest in those turbulent times. My statement nailed down the plight of many Americans who took a principled stand against the Vietnam War. Three years after depicting Ali as the martyr Saint Sebastian, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously threw out Ali’s conviction.

Damn Good Advice (For People With Talent!)

People acting loosey-goosey makes for an atmosphere where you can think creatively and share those thoughts without being accused of saying something inane or stupid. I’ve sat in a Mies Brno chair for over 50 years. (I like to ensconce myself in the products of genius.) The only thing I ever permit on my desk is the job I’m working on. And, in my work place, there is nothing on the walls to distract me from what I’m supposed to be thinking about on my desk.
