Real caption says: “Victoria Stapleton, founder and creative director of Brora, a 100-year-old U.K. tweed mill and maker of high-end cashmere clothing and accessories. Here, she’s at her flagship store at Sloane Square, London. PHOTO: JASON ALDEN FOR THE WALL STREET JOURNAL”

And from the archives, three food-based favorites:
