For someone whose pre-teen diet used to include a can of Heinz tomato soup for breakfast, Jordan’s taste in food (and self respect) has come a long way since. During her time as Foodism’s staff writer, she made a point of exploring all London's food scene had to offer and only once (OK, maybe twice) did we catch her trying to sneak soup for breakfast. She was hungover; we were greatly amused. But those days are over... She’s now a video producer at The Telegraph, where we are told her love affair with 'breakfast soup' continues.
