Although I could be wrong, I suspect that today’s setter is Petitjean (there are a few trademark clues dealing with food and music). If I’m right then I’m slightly disappointed because he’s usually one of my favourite back-page setters, but I thought that this one was pretty mechanical with not a lot of sparkle.
