The first series of Girl Eats Food saw North London’s Joanna Fuertes-Knight take her successful food blog to video in 12 short programmes. Now she’s back as an antidote to the plethora of stuffy food snobs who preach the ins-and-outs of specially sourced truffle oil, but neglect readers who might just want to know their way around a boozy, recession-proof Sunday lunch with some Olympic food theme ideas.
Her modern – and slightly lucid – pentathlon of special Olympic-themed recipes has been designed to propel the 21st century athlete to 2012 glory. Or, alternatively, just provide a tasty take on nachos, to enjoy whilst watching all the high-octane sports on your TV during the Games.
“On the menu, are ‘Energy Nachos’ with an ample dusting of dextrose energy tablets; ‘Cod Liver Salsa’ with a touch of lime Berocca; a cheese-fest ‘Muscle Max Melt’; and ‘Gurana Guacamole’ with that all important swig of gurana.” Vice say.
Girl Eats Food is a cooking show from the stupider, drunkier, more experimental end of home cuisine. Each week, JFK shows us how to prepare a gastronomic delight fit for royalty, made from ‘ingredients’ stocked by her local corner shop, questionable meat markets and an un-suspicious pharmacy.
Season One of Girl Eats Food comprises of 12 four-minute episodes themed around the perfect recipes for events such as The Olympics, The Queen’s Jubilee and Carnival; or just JFK’s ruminations on London’s chicken shop wars, her rants against overpriced, twee cupcakes and the evils of veganism.
