About this title

Synopsis:

Arranged by area, this is a collection of recipes from around London, and includes interviews with specialist food importers, owners of obscure cafes and restaurants, and food-lovers generally. The book lists addresses, contacts, and places to go for authentic ingredients. It looks at the diverse characters of London, and at food in conjunction with the regional cultural influences, discussing why, for example, the Edgware Road has so many Middle Eastern restaurants. Buyers from Fortnum's, Billingsgate and Harrods discuss best buys and give historical recipes alongside their new discoveries.

From Booklist:

At the very least, Trigg's cookbook-cum-food guide to London begins to destroy the long-cherished myth that British gastronomy is an oxymoron. Although in 1949 historian Raymond Postgate declared the existence of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Food throughout Great Britain, almost five decades later the art of good eats is alive and well in London. More than 100 restaurants, individuals, food halls, and even embassies have contributed more than 200 recipes representing cuisines of many cultures, many nations; from the melange of treats--pistachio meringues to kangaroo rump with tomato and olive sauce--it is clear that London's ever-growing ethnic population has triumphed in the matter of edibles. What's more, Trigg gives readers a real sense of the neighborhoods, the fare, and the gourmet shops available, a handy accompaniment for any traveler to the city on the Thames. Barbara Jacobs
