Hoovering - Episode 187: Elf Lyons

Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering.

In this episode I’m hoovering with comedian, clown, performance artist, teacher and person who I became close mates with in the weirdest ever way, she was the much much younger new girlfriend of an ex-boyfriend who’d very very broken my heart so it’s BONKERS that we became friends but we DID. She’s a wild soul, a truly free creative cat and it was an absolute ride taking her for dinner down at Lewisham’s trendy ‘Model Market’

She hosts a night called HOUSE OF HORRORS at 2Northdown in Kings Cross, London

We ate at Lewishams amazing MODEL MARKET and I can’t link directly to the food vendors because neither are on the blooming website at the moment annoyingly but go there- eat - please. There’s amazing, ever changing guest pop-up street foods and it’s fucking delicious, all of it. 

Inferior food outlets we mentioned were WIMPY and BURGER KING as well as MACDONALDS

She nodded to the beautiful novel GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER

Lets not forget the mighty OCEAN HOTEL

Nor, indeed, GILLINGHAM ICE RINK which thankfully, being made of ice, has managed to not burn down
