Tim Hayward

MARCH 4, 2015
I've been providing the illustrations for award-winning food writer and restaurateur Tim Hayward's column in the Financial Times Weekend Magazine for a while now (AD-ed expertly by Shannon Gibson and Paul Tansley). The writing is charming, witty and invariably provides me with interesting visual cues.
The invasion of (restaurants serving) the King Crab

Room With a View's Cecil Vyse, Baedeker in hand vs our hero, Tim, hunting Lambredotto using voice-activated Google Now 
The lure of provincial- and by most measures, inauthentic- local Italian trattorias over more sophisticated restarants
Slow Food vs Convenience
Demanding customers.
Restaurants building online followings.
Tim rails against the fecund yet inedible (fec'n inedible?) courgette
Impossible-to-follow recipes
TV cookery shows: do they actually increase our appetite for cooking?
A youthful Mr H is put up at the George V Hotel in Paris and treats himself to room service
