When I was in my junior year of college, I decided that I wanted to leave the comforts of the United States and study fashion in Europe. Not being able to speak any other language, I decided that London was the place to go.
I really did have the time of my life. It was such a wonderful experience and taught me how to be independent. I love the language and just the pure air of sophistication in London. The London Cookbook by: Aleksandra Crapanzano (Poor girl. Can you imagine going through middle school with that name?) was just the bit of nostalgia that I longed for.
The London Cookbook is filled with beautiful food photography and so many wonderful meals to make. It also tells a story with each recipe. I thoroughly enjoyed paging through and reading it. Will I end up making most of the recipes? Probably not, due to my extreme cheapskate mentality and my laziness. However, I loved just reminiscing about being young with no responsibilities, grabbing life by the horns and all.
Do yourself a favor and at least rent this book from the library. It would make an awesome addition to any cookbook collection! It really is a work of art! Perfect for any armchair traveler.
