What’s your role at Social Pantry?

Café Manager

Use 3 words that best sum up your role at SP?


Making Merry

Chief cake taster!

Desert Island dish?

I don’t eat meat so anything vegetarian. Aubergine Parmigiana is my absolute favourite. Anything with Goats Cheese and/or Spinach – which means I love the SP Spinach and Feta rolls

Dream dinner date?

They would be dream dinner ‘dates’ – my gorgeous group of friends who live in and around the Clapham area. They are always good fun and quite partial to playing games, good wine and chatting over life’s finer points.

Top 5 a day?

Spinach (see above)


Green Olives

Butternut Squash

Conference Pears

Favourite tipple?

I love a good whisky or an ale – such an old man drinker!

Guilty food indulgence?

Venison (I sort of do eat meat sometimes…)

Hidden talent?

I host a real-life story telling night on a monthly basis. I have been known to get up and tell a couple too…

Fav foodie joke?

Q: What kind of nuts always seems to have a cold?
