We got chatting with Alexandra Dudley - chef, podcaster, author and columnist, about her lockdown life.

WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS?

 My bed, propped up on pillows. :)

 

WHERE ARE YOU DREAMING OF GOING AS SOON AS THE QUARANTINE ENDS?

Jolene my local bakery/restaurant. They do the most delicious seasonal dishes and have a divine wine selection. 

 

WHAT QUOTE/ MANTRA / MINDFULNESS GO TO IS GETTING YOU THROUGH THIS?

You can only do what you can do. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

Disney Plus (Im rewatching childhood favourites)  and my wonderful and incredibly patient fiancé. 

 

WHAT WON’T YOU EVER TAKE FOR GRANTED AGAIN POST QUARANTINE?

Hugs 

 

WHAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE YOU LOVING AND WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT TO?

Dusty Knuckle is one of my local bakeries who are smashing it when it comes to keeping vulnerable and lonely supplied with bread. They have a super employee initiative all year round too. 

 

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE?

I’ve said Jolene already but I’ll definitely head to Duck Soup in Soho too. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL?

Print! I'm reading more than ever and actually finding I'm spending less and less time on my phone. 

 

WE ARE CALLED THE DECK – WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CARD GAME?

Shit head 

 

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE?

Navy or perhaps slightly tartan with a killer lining. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX?

I've just finished Unorthodox which was incredible. Highly recommend it. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

I just finished The Truants by Kate Weinberg. It was fantastic! A twisted tale of love and pain and a superb read. 

 

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR SKINCARE REGIME? THE PRODUCTS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?

I love @111skin. I swear by their Y Theorem Repair Serum and occasionally treat myself to their sheet masks which genuinely make you feel like you’ve had a facial at home. 

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS?

I take a probiotic daily and love Symprove. It's totally changed my life. I also take vitamin D, fish oil and a tincture of echinacea and elderberry if ever I'm feeling a little run down. 

  

WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORKOUT OF CHOICE?  

I am obsessed with the FIIT app especially @adrienne_ldn. And I have been loving Psycle workouts via instagram.
