Always the Best

September 8, 2011







. . . . . . . . . .

A Sunday night supper in mid-August with my friend Ben before he moved north – we went to St. John Bread & Wine, which is always one of my favorites.

And on the walk home after dinner, a London moment & a late-summer sky worthy of a photo.

    I’m jealous- St. John is definitely on my list. Looks like a great night. :)

    i’m waiting for you to slip and do just ONE british spelling of ‘favourites.’

    this feels like quintessential late summer.

    Your photos always make me wish I were there…

    Oh yes this place is awesome! We went there in June on our holiday and I can totally see why you love it. I’m just up to editing London photos now so I will be reliving St John’s soon. Love your photos.

    Hah, I remember thinking, shit you just photographed me pouring my beer in a most amateur fashion. Great meal though (not quite as gluttonous as our trip to Bull & Last…but close)!

      Ben! Steph and I were talking about you just t’other day. Can’t believe you’re back up north. I’m moving on too. Let’s catch up for supper when you’re next down. I’ll cook. J x

      Brian, apologies for hijacking your post – excellent photos as always. Loving the new look of the blog.

        Yeah I’ll be back down pretty frequently – I’ll let you know when next! Strange to be back in Manc. Completely different to not being a student in the city (thank god)

    Such beautiful images. I could almost smell the mussels, the steam rising, wafting towards me. Gorgeous

    I love St John’s. I love that bread they serve, I can almost taste it looking at your picture.

    I recently discovered another lovely London blog called Spitalfields Life. There are several profiles of the people who work at St John — there is one, for example, of the man who makes the bread: http://spitalfieldslife.com/category/culinary-life/>

        Oh, is “gentle author” of Spitalfields Life a he? Or is it a she? I haven’t been able to figure that out yet.

    Eating with friends. Eating good things with good sparkling friends. That’s what life is worth for.

    Oh, it definitely looks like it would be the best spot to visit!
