Since No One Asked
Unsolicited cooking advice and stories of love, olive oil, salt and lemons.
A weekly (ish) newsletter about food, friends and heartbreak. Far from an influencer, but definitely easily influenced, Since No One Asked became a writerly effort to log the dishes I make and pair them with the heady aromas of nostalgia, bad relationships and stories that remind me of who I was before we were all stuck in our houses for three months. Literally no one asked me to do this. Yet here we are.
Expect unmeasured recipes (unless like me you too measure pours by the time it takes to think of what colour Connell Waldron’s eyes are in Normal People), a lot of pasta, anonymous love letters to toxic exes and a lot of chat about how much I use salt.
Out & About
Since no one asked, here’s a few food related stories, from restaurants to chefs, books to articles.
Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler
I’ve read this book more than seven times because it‘s so spot on in its portrayal of taste, appetite, love and sex in the restaurant industry set in New York. Also the tv adaptation is epic (not just because Tom Sturridge is perfect).
Not just for its incredible food, dreamy chalk-washed walls or epic wine list, I love Jolene because it was the first restaurant in London that made me feel like this was home. Neighbourhood patio vibes don’t get better than this.
Bre Audrey Graham
I had the pleasure of interviewing Bre (who is Natoora’s head of content) for S&T and can confirm she’s as beautiful and cool as the food she makes. BRB while I try and make everything look as effortlessly Italian as her.
