Calling Time Out on Snacks


Is it possible to eat healthily at Christmas?


The Photographers Gallery cafe, Inspired Eating

Last week, I did a takeover of The Photographers’ Gallery Instagram account, inspired by their inspirational current exhibition, Feminism Avant Gard. This week I would like to take this opportunity to add the gallery cafe to my list of suggested “Inspired Eating locations”. After coming out of the exhibition feeling artisticly nourished, I had the chance to catch up with the the brilliant gallery Director, Brett Rodgers, OBE and her great team in the cafe on the ground floor. Below is the menu of what we ate. I will be going back again as soon as I can and strongly recommend you do too.
