Let’s Go for Lunch

LONDON: What I like most about London at the moment is the ever changing and new ideas of restaurants, chefs, new delis, bars, and cooking books. In London you can eat everything at its best, whether it’s a Chinese restaurant in Soho or a new deli in Notting Hill or Shoreditch. When I am in London I love to go for lunch with friends or I go to Daunt Books in Marlybone and look up the latest cooking books. It gives me great inspiration for my own dinner parties at home and I always fit in a long hour lunch at my favorite places when I am in town.

From top left to bottom right: Granger and Co on Westbourne Grove in Notting Hill; Bill Granger, the Australian chef, cooks a great mixture of Mediterranean, Eastern and traditional English recipes; a rather light meal at St. John’s Bread and Wine in comparison to the St. John’s restaurant in the East End, where you just have to order meat with great side dishes; a light cupcake at Rose Bakery in Dover Street Market, great for a quick lunch; Mr. Fergus Henderson, the specialist in town when it comes to meat; Prework at The Duke of Cambridge, London’s only certified organic pub with best ingredients for their meals; the interior of Rose Bakery at the Dover Street Market, another favorite dish at St. John’s restaurant; after a long walk in Hampstead Heast I take a break for lunch at Ginger and White Cafe; lovely desserts on vintage plates at the Duke of Cambridge, I start my day with the best breakfast in town at Lantana Café; a dish from the latest Polpo Venetian Cook Book, spaghetti vongole, published by Bloomsbury, London.
