15 Jan Minn’s munchtime! Food reviews for musicians
Finding good food ASAP is one of a musician’s most pressing concerns post rehearsal. They say the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but I’d say the same applies to that of a musician!
Perhaps I’m biased, coming from a food loving family. My mum is an exemplary cook and renowned creator of baking masterpieces 5 storeys high (her chocolate hazelnut cake for my 25th birthday has gone down as legendary in my friends’ memories); and there isn’t a restaurant in town which doesn’t have an acquaintance of my aunt and uncle’s working there, so widespread is their network of culinary friends!
I too have always loved food, both cooking and eating. My mum (of course) also got me hooked on watching people cook and eat (favourite YouTubers include Mark Wiens, Food Ranger and Maangchi). Since I enjoy finding local, fantastic places to eat, I thought it would be fun to share and make a record of them here on my blog!
I want to discover where is ideal for those post rehearsal munchies, whether that be lunch, dinner or after concert drinks. Good swift service, value and proximity to venue will be considered and I hope to get a wide variety of eateries for all our gastronomic needs!
As I’m based in London, the majority will be in and around the London area, but I plan to share my touring finds too. I’m looking forward to a few days in Paris next month so will be exploring around the Philharmonie area.
I hope this will be a fun and useful guide for hungry musicians, or just hungry anyone 😀 Do send in suggestions of your favourite restaurants/cafes/markets or somewhere you’d like me to check out!
