Talking Pie and Mash & London with Jake Green on IG Live

John Rogers Jake Green



Last night I had the immense pleasure of having a great chat with photographer and fellow Leytonstonian, Jake Green on Instagram Live. I provided an essay for Jake’s book Pie and Mash, a photographic document of London’s surviving Pie and Mash Shops, some of which have sadly closed since the book’s publication. In our chat we not only talked about Jake’s book but delved into the roots of this great London culinary tradition as well segueing into the geographical spread of London accents, punk and pies, speciality coffee in Waltham Forest and much more.

Also in our live conversation we preview Jake’s forthcoming Live YouTube event hosted at Noted Eel and Pie House, Leytonstone on December 13th. People signing up in advance enter a draw to win a delivery of Pie and Mash from Noted in time to eat whilst watching the stream. Joining Jake online will be Bob and Robert Cooke from the legendary chain of Cooke’s Pie and Mash shops, alongside a host of other guests including yours truly. It promises to be as transcendent as a double pie and mash with steamed eels from Noted.
