‘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.

M Y  S T O R Y  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. One of my sites is a cool little cafe in Battersea, pop in if you are in need of a delicious coffee, lunch or brunch!

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.

F o o d.   T r a v e l.   B u s i n e s s.

I hope you enjoy it.
