After seven years, and over 105,397 visits we have retired our old interweb site that has done us so proud and launched a brand new sparkling version. This contains er, all the information we had before, but it looks prettier, incorporates a search function, has some links to social media (whatever that may be) and is easy for our designer / techy people to manage. At least that’s how they sold it to us…
Thanks to the Transmanche Enterprise Network (TEN) Project run by Canterbury Council we have had some parts of the site translated into French and Dutch so we can show some love to our European neighbours, and perhaps tempt them over to share some JoJo’s hospitality with us!
Individual thanks goes to our translators Virginie for the French and Kent Union Jobshop for organising the Dutch; plus thanks to Annie at Interactrice for telling us about the project and Natalia at the Local Economy Team of Canterbury Council for facilitating.

We took a weekend out to unwind and visit Harvest at Jimmy’s, a food and music festival in Suffolk. Not only was there some great grub on offer from various pop-up restaurants and street food vans, music from Fat Freddy’s Drop and Turin Brakes hit the spot and we even had a go (or two) on the helter skelter. The weather played ball and we only got half-an-hour of rain which left a fabulous double rainbow over the main stage. And to top it off we even got a big “hello Nikki and JoJo’s” from Jay Rayner when he was on stage!

She’s back! Nikki is recuperating well and has even been making an appearance back in the kitchen. Thanks for all your support and a big “well done” to the team running JoJo’s in her absence.

Unfortunately Nikki had to go under the knife on 20th April at Kings Hospital in London. Our talented team will be running JoJo’s whilst she recuperates from the hospital food (!) and we’re sure you will join us in wishing her the very best and we look forward to seeing Nikki back in the kitchen later in the summer.

We were astounded to learn that we had been voted the 85th best restaurant in the UK’s National Restaurant Awards 2010. The judging academy is made up of prominent chefs, restaurateurs and food critics and we were in amazing company as the list of winners is dominated by some big big names in the restaurant world such as The Ledbury, The Fat Duck, Hibiscus and Le Manoir Aux Quat’ Saisons to name but a few!
So we’d like to say a massive “thank you” to the judges and to everyone one involved; we had a truly amazing night at the awards ceremony (11 October 2010) but don’t worry, we won’t be getting carried away with ourselves.
We’ll be back to work this week and we look forward to welcoming you all to JoJo’s new premises for some great food!
