Fall Salads, Winter Salads

Ottolenghi’s Sort-of-Waldorf

Another winner from from Yotam Ottolenghi! This recipe is from his cookbook “Plenty More”…I’m a huge fan of his stuff! My husband and I even paid a visit to his shop in Nottinghill the last time we were in London! It’s a deli that has the most amazing looking things available and so beautifully presented! […]

BOO!! It’s Halloween!

The last time we were in London, England in October, darned if we didn’t see Halloween stuff all over the place! I couldn’t believe it.  One afternoon we saw people in costumes heading into some kind of afternoon event not far from the Victoria and Albert Museum. I think it’s safe to say it was a […]

An English Pub Lunch?

We were in London for a week in 2010 and other than being at Heathrow on previous trips, it was my very first time in England. Me…the English history nut! So, what’s one of the first things you want to do on your first morning in London other than leaving our rented apartment? Going for […]

DEM BONES

It’s the trendy thing these days that’s good for you and I’m not talking kale! It’s… the envelope please “Bone Broth”…that’s right, it all begins with bones roasted then simmered with water, veggies and a bit of apple cider vinegar, for hours and hours. The Wild Game Co. pop-up in London has bone broth on […]

The Fat Badger Pub – An English Style Pub

Reviews of local restaurants on this blog are something I don’t usually do, but the arrival of an English style “gastro-pub” or “pub” not far from home, is something we were really looking forward to because of our  great experiences in London! Just the name “The Fat Badger” had us hooked! And then if that was not […]

To Meat Or Not To Meat?

Ever since Elizabeth Minchelli posted a photo on Facebook taken one night while having dinner at St. John, of what the table next to theirs had ordered; a whole roasted suckling pig and the comments the photo engendered, I wanted to make a response. We are not vegetarians. We eat a lot of vegetarian meals. We love just about […]

Kitchen Sink, Spring Possibilities

The Arrival of Spring

Counting the days until the spring season begins providing us with amazing goodies to enjoy. Hands up if you are as tired of squash as we are!   Spotted at the Nat Bailey Winter Market little French Breakfast radishes at Sole Food. Fergus Henderson, of St. John’s restaurants in London, England uses the whole thing, leaves and all. May […]

Butcher Love

A good friend recently pointed out to me that I always seem to make friends with butchers when we travel! Well…I hadn’t really thought about it but then again, I guess it’s true and considering we cook while on vacation, it’s a good thing. First it was “the butcher of Panzano” in Chianti, then the […]

Kudos Or Not, London, Part 2

If you happen to be in East London or Canterbury check out the Crown & Deeson’s.  We liked them both a lot.  They both serve well cooked English food, using local ingredients. One sunny morning, we headed to Smithfield & Clerkenwell, to check things out. The area has been attracting a lot of designers & architects. It is […]
