What Joanna Ate: Weekend of 26th and 27th September
This week has involved lots of lunches (more below).  So the weekend may be rather more abstemious salads
for me.  But a few tips for things for places
to go/things to bake: Tuesday’s lunch was a fabulous visit to the newest Barrafinaaddition on Drury Lane ...

What Joanna Ate: Weekend of September 12th and 13th
A little binge book buying this week.  A few on pre-order, including the NOPI book (out today, on the 10 th ).  An

glossy restaurant sister (with recipes from Yotam and NOPI head ...

Blog reincarnation. Weekend lists.
It has been a little silent here this year.  I have still been in the kitchen, mixing, whisking,
spattering.  Still leafing through piles
of books, folding the corner of pages to earmark next recipes.  Still adding to an endless restaurant
to-visit list (ti...

Primeur N5, Stoke Newington
I’m just catching up on a few
overdue December posts.  Dinner at
Primeur was a few weeks ago, the visit overdue in itself.  I’d meant to visit soon after the May
opening, but hadn’t quite made it (despite the rave reports by those who are
lucky enough to ha...

Mincemeat Waffles (a simple Christmas leftovers recipe)
In the post-Christmas slump, a
quick leftovers recipe.  No cold turkey
in sight.  Instead, a simple way to use
up any half jars of pie-less mincemeat. 
Spooned into a plain waffle batter, a couple of dollops adds a spicy sweetness,
sticky with dried fruit. ...

What Joanna Ate: Weekend of September 5th & 6th
Autumn is here.  The
self-imposed tights ban hasn’t quite lifted, but the black opaques are close.  It’s all apples, pears and plums.  A collection of the outdoors (for last straining sunshine),
plus more cosy insides for the weekend ahead: It’s the last we...

My favourite cookery books of 2014
My blog does has a few cooking
ideas, but is mostly taken up with London's great and good (I tend to leave out
the more mediocre).  A lot more of my time is spent in the kitchen
though, sometimes testing out my own ideas, but usually working my
way through ...

Kitty Fisher's, Mayfair
As the nursery
rhyme goes, Kitty Fisher found Lucy Locket’s lost pocket.  Not a penny in it, only ribbon round it.  It’s suggested this Kitty Fisher is the famed
18 th century courtesan, penned as kind of a first celebrity.  The new Mayfair restaurant takes...

Escaping the Selfridges crowd to the roof, to the Le Chalet Alpine takeover,

blankets and...

From expense account lunches to great cheap eats around London and in the kitchen
Introduction
I'm a twenty-something Londoner working in media, eating my way around town to search out the best restaurants, bars, cafes & street food, with a little cooking along the way
