I’m working on my own kitchen library, but I doubt it will ever match this mighty impressive collection of culinary reads (and what you see here is only half of itâ€”the rest is stacked upon office shelves upstairs). I suppose such an achievement is to be expected when you bring together the food and drink editor of this informative group and the editor of this fine site, eating and cooking and living tastefully under one roof.
Lucky usâ€”we got to be guests in this dynamic household! We took the long route home from Asia, with a four-day stop in London. We’d met Him and Her for dinner on our last trip through, in October. When we came through this time, They generously offered their guestroom as a halfway stay between continents. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts and guides, who welcomed us with a full-on home-cooked Burmese meal made from the recipes of this grand book (to which She recently gave a big thumbs up).
Nor could two fans of Indian food have asked for a better halfway house location. She and He live in Tooting, which offers one of the world’s best assemblies of Indian and Sri Lankan eats. Next up: touring London with two of the city’s most refined palates.
