When it comes to our Europe experience, I haven't said a whole lot about London. We only spent three days there, which was so not even close to the amount of time I would need there to do everything I want to do and soak up the culture. But it did make a really big impression on me, partially because it just felt familiar somehow (a lot of books take place in London), and partially because we ate really, really well while we were there.
England (and subsequently London) gets a really bad rap for cuisine, as compared to, say, France or Italy. But just about every damn thing we put in our mouths in that city was phenomenal. So I don't know what to tell you about that.
This cookbook takes recipes from some of London's restaurants (both hole-in-the-wall and haute cuisine) and delivers them to you. It tells a little about how the chef and the restaurant, making it a fun travel book as well as a cookbook. Plus, the cover is so pretty you'd be crazy not to display it somewhere.
I don't know when I'll ever get back to London. I suspect it will most likely be between the pages of a novel, but a girl can dream. Until then, I at least can bring my favorite part of London right into my kitchen.
