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...

A couple of Christmas pop-ups: Le Chalet and Skandilicious
My trip to Oxford Street this week was definitely not for
the madness of Christmas shopping. 
Escaping the Selfridges crowd to the roof, to the Le Chalet Alpine takeover,
instead of the open roof/fake grass of the summer , twinkly lights, check
blankets and...

Mission E2, Bethnal Green
A brief brunch post.  An escape from torrential rain at Mission ,
complete with its leafy palm stretching up to the top of the railway arch
ceiling.  The second place from the people
of Sager + Wilde (the wine bar on Hackney Road, with delicious snacks too)...

Forza Winter, Peckham
Bus people-watching
balances out the slightly unglamorous mode of travel.  Friday’s 11pm route home on the 63 provided
excellent examples of terrible (i.e. too small/tight, rather than scary) Halloween outfits (lots of teeny mini-skirts and fake blood).  St...

The Colony (at The Beaumont), Mayfair & Fischer’s, Marylebone
Breakfast at TheWolseley was an 18 th birthday treat.  I felt fancy, sitting in
the plush room (a converted car showroom), all gilt, marble and silver
crockery.  Eight years later (living in the city for nearly five), I’m
less easily impressed.  Yet it’s st...

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 Top 3 November 2014
After mild neglect in a busy
November, I’m just sneaking this post in. 
Before December 1 st and Christmas taking over, my top three
list of Thai barbecue, new favourite Bar Termini and one of the ugliest but
nicest root vegetables. Smoking Goat & Som Saa -...

4 days in Marrakech (sausages/slippers/souks/spices)
4 days in Marrakech last week
were generally made up of the following list of 4: Souk/Medina rage.  The seemingly impossible to navigate
terracotta roads/lanes/alleys, which made no sense to my general feeling of
direction.  One day it took us
approximately...

Spring, Aldwych
Apt for its name, Spring is very pretty. 
All pastel/blush shades, graphic white floral installations on the walls, a glass-roofed leafy terrace tucked to the side.  Even beautifully pink floor tiles in the
toilets.  Looking at my photos after, there's a ki...

Brussels (with a little Ghent too)
Holiday eating/drinking lists
are important.  Research is key.  Going off-list can sometimes
work (stumbling upon somewhere fabulous looking).  But this is
risky.  Going off-list is more likely to end in disappointment, at worst crappy food in a sneaky tour...

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
