Overview

Alongside her own recipes, food-writer Jenny Linford has collected more from other food-loving Londoners. Dishes reflect the cosmopolitan diversity of London life, ranging from a zingy Gujurati Coriander Chutney or tasty Japanese Pork with Miso to dainty Rose Fairy Cakes or an indulgent Bread and Butter Pudding. Traditional dishes, such as Beef and Ale Stew with Herbed Dumplings or Syllabub Trifle, sit alongside personal recipes, such as Teresa’s Quince and Apple Pie or Polly’s Roast Lamb with Tapenade. Recipe contributors include Borough Market stall-holders, delicatessen owners, restaurateurs, food producers, and people living in the capital who love cooking for their family and friends. With the recipes come Londoners’ stories, ranging from reminiscences by butchers, fishmongers, and sausage-makers to personal food memories. Read about such distinctive London eating places as the eel and pie shop, the curry house, and the fish and chip shop. Discover London’s food history including the city’s markets and the tea and coffee trade—and enjoy an evocative taste of London.
