Tune in to #bitingtalk tonight at 6pm with @WilliamSitwell. I’ll be joining him for chats about food, cooking and my new book http://smarturl.it/RootStemLeaf @QuadrilleFood

It's a strange time for #restaurants right now, but this critic thinks that they'll bounce back from the #pandemic. After all, they had take-out in ancient Pompeii and restaurants boomed in post-revolution Paris. Author @WilliamSitwell joined us: https://bit.ly/2YYgnDs

On #BitingTalk at 6pm on your telephone. I’ll be having my first Insta chat with @Selene_Nelson since we, er, met on email in October 2018.

I'm finding it easy to understand what Boris is saying, you have to be purposely not understanding it or just a bit dim not to follow this tbh. #BorisJohnson

If you need cheering up a bit watch this lady making pastry.

Well done @joewarwick for skewering the misery chapter of the amateur restaurant critic clique. Good read this 👏https://www.boisdale.co.uk/journal/over-eater/

@WilliamSitwell @BoisdaleLife @DamienMcCrystal As former front man at El Vino Blackfriars I can vouch for Mr McCrystal's almost super-human efforts in the area of consumption, whose enthusiasm never faltered and good humour was never lost - cheers to more inebriated times!
