london calling

Growing up, my parents took me and my sister to places all over Asia and North America, but we had never gone to Europe. The older I got, the more I dreamed about visiting the great European cities.

Well, finally in 2006, I got to go to London for a week. And there, I fell in love with a city. Now, every time I see anything to do with London, I swoon a tiny bit.

Which is why I couldn't resist picking up this book in the Williams-Sonoma series (plus it was on sale for $5!!! How could I resist?)

Part cookbook, part travel guide, there are some great recommendations of where to shop and where to eat while in London. I can't wait to go back so that I can visit some of the places mentioned in this book!

Is that roast beef and bread pudding on the cover?

I really love that they put everythingin pie in London/England, because I love pie.

I also love discovering food while travelling. I love those travelling food shows for that reason.

ellie - oh my god! don't you love that about England? I especially fell in love with their pasties - they're sooo yummy and convenient! I wish I could find a good pasty shop here in Toronto - I'd be there all the time!

Wait, on the other hand...that would probably mean I'd gain like a hundred pounds in a few months, so maybe it's better that pasties stay over in the UK!
