For the perfect Sunday lunch with her three young children and their friends, the children's food writer Annabel Karmel heads for Zen Spice Market (0171-266 1888) at 215 Sutherland Avenue, Maida Vale, London W9. "It's easy and quick. It's healthy food. What I like about it is that the kids are involved with the cooking. They choose what they want to eat from a table covered with bowls of raw ingredients, put it on a plate, then take it over to the chef who immediately makes their stir-fries. They choose the weirdest of combinations, but because they've chosen it, they tend to eat it."
