Post image for L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon London revisited

As soon as people hear I have a food blog, one of the first questions they ask me is “so what’s your favourite restaurant in London?”.  The question is almost always followed by an embarrassed silence as I rack my brain to come up with somewhere that has at least a whiff of the hip,  happening or trendy to it.  It’s one of those pressure questions that you just know is going to result in your being judged, either positively or negatively, for the rest of the night and so am I always loath to answer. You see, the thing is I have never really been one for scouring Twitter to see what’s cool on the restaurant scene and then trying to be one of the first people to go to that hard-to-find trendy pop-up serving only grilled cheese and kimchi sandwiches out of the back of a restored Winnebago in months ending with an R when the moon is full, somewhere in the Stoke Newington.  I have nothing against grilled cheese sandwiches, pop-ups, Stoke Newington or, indeed, kimchi – but when I go out I want to be spoilt with food I would never dream of cooking at home, and this is one of the reasons why L’Atelier Joel Robuchon has been at or near the top of my list of London favourites since it opened.

Love-hate relationships – we all have them.  Some of us have them with food, with religion, or with the gym.  I know people who have love-hate relationships with their family members, their pets, or even themselves.  People love and hate their jobs, their country’s government, their exes and their kids. These past few weeks, the […]

Unlike many teenagers, Bernard Loiseau knew from an early age what he wanted to do with his life, and that was cook.   At an age when other teenage boys are chasing girls and playing football, he was already an apprentice at the renowned La Maison Troisgros, a restaurant that has had three Michelin stars […]

So – 2015!  How on earth did that happen? My father once told me that the older he got, the more he tended not to remember individual years but rather just decades – and I am beginning to understand what he meant. The 1980s were high school and university; the 1990s were postgrad and the start […]

Regard the humble onion.
