The London Cookbook Review

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.
