Description: A celebration of the capital's reminiscences, food is an culture, The London Cookbook is an appetizing history and photography. As well as sharing her own recipes, food writer Jenny Linford has gathered others from food-loving Londoners, including professionals such as market stall-holders, delicatessen owners, chefs and restaurateurs, as well as people who simply love cooking for their family and friends. 

Recipes reflect the cosmopolitan diversity of London life, embracing hearty main dishes such as Jewish Chicken Soup or Spanish Chorizo and Bean Stew along with life-enhancing accompaniments like zingy Gujurati chutney and indulgent treats like Rose Fairy Cakes. 

Traditional English dishes, such as Beef and Ale Stew sit alongside contributors' personal and family recipes like Teresa's Quince and Apple Pie and Yuka's Japanese Pork with Miso.

Alongside the recipes are reminiscences by London's butchers, bakers, fishmongers and cheese mongers, painting a unique picture of London life. Read the stories behind the city's tea and coffee trade, its specialty food shops, markets, and its distinctive eel and pie shops and fish and chip bars. Discover London's food history and tuck into an evocative taste of London.
