Despite Britain’s historically poor culinary reputation, London is now a centre of world food and a destination for the foodie.
This begs the question, though, how does one navigate London’s numerous gastropubs, fast food places, etc and separate them from the true culinary gems?
Enter the book Eat London 2 by Peter Prescott & Terence Conran which explores the unique, interesting and posh side of London’s culinary scene.
This is not a traditional guidebook. It’s actually rather large – so it’s not something you want to pack in your bag on your next trip to London.
It is a full guide to everything – places to eat, types of food and something that’s really cool for a restaurant guidebook, actual recipes from the chefs featured in the book.
So, while you’re planning your next jaunt to London, you can sample some of London’s finest culinary dishes on your own. There’s more than just the basic information on where to eat, how to get there and what they service. They also take pains to profile the chefs and in some entries actually talk to them.
It’s an encyclopedic look at London’s current food scene. If that interests you – then this book is definitely for you.
