Joshua Baring in Pale Green

Saturday 6th June 2020

I was blasted suddenly to realise that Joshua Baring’s food, shown regularly on Insta, is all in the pale green range. There is also mention of celery which rarely features these days in the normal run of cuisines. In six weeks there was only one instance of a tomato.

Sensing a story, I began to sniff. But it’s so massive and will require extensive research. As you know, research is not what I was born to. I’m more of a colour artist: I do atmosphere, colour background, sensations and impressions, as well as visions. I always used to say that when performing extended travel items to camera from foreign locations for Dainty Lady TV.  I don’t me for the address of the lace shop.

Covering Joshua Baring’s cuisine will be years of work. For a start I’ll have to go over to Robert Nevil’s where he is ensconced with the Nizam and Sebastian Archer. At least they’re not busy breaking up the Nizam of Hyderabad Tiara, as the Queen did in the 1970s to make the Burmese Ruby Tiara – an Edward Heath Tiara, Rufus Pitman says. I’ll have to examine Robert Nevil’s copy of an ancient cookery book by Patience Gray called Honey from a Weed (peculiar title), which is Joshua Baring’s bible.

But I must persist because it’s so important. Joshua Baring is only 34, but he’s resisted so many trends. Staggering.
