very enjoyable and practical,
This review is from: A Foodie's Guide to London (Paperback)
This is my favourite book of Cara's ... so far. I'm sure she'll write more brilliant books. As a visitor to London, one is frequently stuck for a snack, a good cafe, somewhere to go for a special treat. Not any more. Cara champions the independent shop for visitors and locals alike. There is nothing like the capital city for unique, independent shops. 10 bakeries are listed across the capital, where you can find such treasures as Campaillou (Sourdough and rye), gorgeous hand-made cakes, breads and other delicacies. 8 cheesemongers - must get Vulscombe Devon goat's cheese when next in the city. Keep it quiet - 9 chocolatiers - too late the queues are already forming. 10 irresistible delicatessen's - gosh I almost remember when that was a new word in Yorkshire! There are also butchers, fishmonger's, food halls and emporiums, food and farmer's markets, grocers and farm shops, wine merchants and world food. A brief description is given of each shop accompanied by mouth-watering photos that make you want to drop everything and just go out and sample the goodies. Details include address, phone number, opening times and underground or rail connections. Buy it now, it's highly recommended for all foodies. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.
