Food, Travel & Entertaining

About Alex

‘The Best People Like To Eat’ Julia Childs

W E L C O M E !

My website is a relaxed site that encompasses everything I love.  Travel, eating out and brilliant people I meet and admire in food and business.

I started selling sandwiches aged 15 in Riyadh. Fast forward 17 years and I own Social Pantry, a catering company with 5 sites in London; including a cool little cafe in Battersea, pop in if you are in need of a delicious coffee, lunch or brunch! This year I opened Soane’s Kitchen in Ealing, a gorgeous all-day dining restaurant for fresh, seasonal and delicious food.

What I’m most proud of is that I employ ex-offenders and bloody love doing so. Hit me up for more info on employing ex-offenders and the great charities I work with if you are interested.

Food. Travel. Business.

I hope you enjoy it.
