Have you noticed how food has become the new fashion? Like its sartorial cousin food is something that we must all have and what you choose to eat ‘right now’ would seem to say so much about who you are. Are you more likely to say “Freekah, that’s so last year darling” or “French mustard, I’m not touching that fancy muck”? Do you consider yourself a food fashionista or the catering equivalent of a pair of 70’s platform shoes?
This may be hard to believe but my road to One Great George Street (OGGS) really began way back in 1979, a few years before I left school, and was heavily influenced by just one individual. That person’s name was Margaret Thatcher.
“Strange,” I hear you say, “I don’t remember Maggie setting up too many catering initiatives in the formative years of her premiership” and you would be right, but in those early years there was very little else left.
