  • What is your favourite city right now? London
  • Why do you love it? I can buy any ingredients I grew to love in countries I travelled to.
  • Where do you refuel in the morning? If I’m out I have a brownie suffused with orange oil at one of my son Henry’s Leon restaurants.
  • Tell us a hidden gem? I love the Syrian restaurant Abu Zaad. Try Fatet Makdous – aubergines stuffed with lamb and walnuts and in hot yogurt.
  • Where is the best market? I like Shepherd’s Bush Market, mostly because it’s like being several different countries at once.
  • Top street-food eat? Mr Falafel, Shepherd’s Bush Market.
  • Best place for a sunset drink? At home on my balcony with my partner Johnny, looking down on my roses and jasmine.
  • What restaurant do you book every time? We go to the unglamorous-looking Thai restaurant, the Hammersmith Café. Try the fish in ‘secret sauce’.
  • Best spot for something sweet? Southall, Spitalfields or Drummond Street for Ras Malai, a milk curd floating in cardamom flavoured reduced milk.
  • What gadget?  Notebook and pencil in order to remember any discoveries.
