around town

February 24, 2011










(the current shop window at present is awesome)



. . . . . . . . .

my brother and sister-in-law were visiting recently, so i gave them a walking tour around my favorite spots in town this weekend. are you surprised that most of our route was determined by food? i guess those are the sights of london that i like to share with guests…

    Oh that shop window is cheery. I’ve always thought it would be fun to work as a window designer/artist.

    I think food is a great way to show people around a place! Lovely pictures, as always!

    i’m pretty sure that life revolves around food. makes sense to show your favourites… my problem is always fitting it all in.
    this makes me miss london. a lot.

    Routes determined by food. Exactly! And it looks like you treated your brother and sister-in-law to a wonderful tour!

    My younger brother, whom I was visiting last weekend, and I were asked to explain to a couple of my friends why food is so important to us. Yes, one has to eat, so it might as well be good. But more importantly, we grew up in a home of nightly family dinners, and it was over the family dinner table that life was shared and community was built. Both these truths define much of how my siblings and I engage when sharing food/meals with others.

    Beautiful moments captured, as always.

    My boyfriend is coming to visit me in London next week, and I’m afraid we’re not going to have enough meals for him to try everything! Borough Market, St. John’s, Ottolenghi and Leila’s are but a few choices on the list… Any other suggestions?
    By the way, I love your sister-in-law’s coat… Do you know where it’s from? ;)

    that cheese at neil’s yard is a dream.

    These are sweet! I love that double reflection thing that happened through the window, then the mirror..

  17. February 25, 2011 5:29 am

    you are an inspiration.

  18. February 25, 2011 7:57 am

    hey, looks like you snapped my friend at NYD serving you cheese!

    Love. Sometimes your posts quite literally make my morning.

    I love that your route was determined by food (and good coffee from the look of it). What better way to spend time with those you love!
