London is a city brimful of culinary possibilities from great gastropubs to trendy bars, lively markets and chefs (Gordon Ramsay, Heston Blumenthal, Jamie Oliver) at the top of their game. "Eat London" is not a restaurant guide - it is a book all about food and the people who make, sell, cook and care about it. From cafes to delis, the Indian food markets of East London to haute cuisine in Mayfair, food quality and originality is the main criterion alongside recognising good, interesting decor, comfortable furnishings, pleasant and interesting surroundings, a convivial ambiance, a sense of history or tradition, consistency and wonderful amusing personalities. Each chapter encompasses a specific area of London with full address listings for every entry and suggestions of itinaries or fun things to do. More than 60 recipes will appear throughout the book by some of Britain' s top chefs including Peter Gordon of Providores, Georgio Locatelli of Locanda Locatelli, John Torode of Smiths of Smithfield, Fergus Henderson of St. John, Rose Grey and Ruth Rogers of The River Cafe, Tom Conran of The Cow and Richard Corrigan of Lindsay House as well as recipes from some of the capital' s favourite restaurants such as Fifteen, Le Gavroche, Coq d' Argent, Moro, Bibendum, Gaucho Grill, and Racine amongst others. All photographs are specially shot throughout and the text is full of anecdotes, stories and a sense of London streetlife.
