Book Description

16 Mar 2007
London is a city brimful of culinary possibilities from great gastropubs to trendy bars, lively markets and chefs (Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Jamie Oliver) at the top of their game. Eat London is not a restaurant guide it is a book all about food and the people who make, sell, cook and care about it. From cafs to delis, the Indian food markets of East London to haute cuisine in Mayfair, food quality and originality is the main criterion alongside recognising good, interesting decor, comfortable furnishings, pleasant and interesting surroundings, a convivial ambiance, a sense of history or tradition, consistency and wonderful amusing personalities. Each chapter encompasses a specific area of London with full address listings for every entry and suggestions of itinaries or fun things to do. More than 60 recipes will appear throughout the book by some of Britain s top chefs including Peter Gordon of Providores, Georgio Locatelli of Locanda Locatelli, John Torode of Smiths of Smithfield, Fergus Henderson of St. John, Rose Grey and Ruth Rogers of The River Cafe, Tom Conran of The Cow and Richard Corrigan of Lindsay House as well as recipes from some of the capital s favourite restaurants such as Fifteen, Le Gavroche, Coq d Argent, Moro, Bibendum, Gaucho Grill, and Racine amongst others. All photographs are specially shot throughout and the text is full of anecdotes, stories and a sense of London streetlife.

First Sentence
Fitzrovia and Marylebone probably have the highest concentration of blue plaques in London - earthenware-glazed discs affixed to the outside of all manner of buildings to mark the former residence of eminent individuals - and an equally high number of top-quality restaurants and food stores. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Foodie's Handbook to Discovering London 13 July 2007
This book is a real find, it lists all the best places in London for food. Not just restaurants but markets, shops and cafes as well. The only downside is that now my list of places I want to go to is getting unmanageable.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a find! 7 May 2010
Any real fan of food and restaurants will know London is an absolute mecca of treats and delights with a fabulous variaty of cultures and cuisines there for the picking.
But what you'll also discover is deciding where to go can be a challenge with it's vast choices of restaurants, deli's, bistro's, cafe's and so on.
Well worry no longer Eat London can be the answer to all these challenging decisions! Full of great tips, real and honest reviews and gorgeous pictures you'll be ahead of the game!
I recently visited London with my trusty book and managed to squeeze in visiting three of the recommended restaurants into one weekend (and was not dissapointed!).
You'll be given the inside scoop including reviews from Michelin star restaurants to Gastro Pubs!
The overall look and presentation of the book is fabulous and would make a brilliant gift for any foodie. I couldn't recommended this book highly enough, enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love London, Love Food 17 Nov 2007
Buy this book! If you don't love either food or London, poor soul, then buy it for someone who does; you must be surrounded buy them. The cover opens into a map of London to plan your gastronomic tour. Market stalls, delis, front-room cafes and speciality restaurants are incorporated within this gem of a book. Informative text and photos cover a huge array of retailers all of whom are PASSIONATE about their products. It is a real page turner that will be dipped into for many years to come.
