London - place to eat

London's food scene moves very fast and as food has become extremely trendy, a 2 year old review is dangerous. If you google food blogs such as cheesenbiscuits or the more recent timeout reviews even or the Londonist it will give you a good starting point to see what is here now. Agree to avoid Brick lane and Jamie Oliver. Plenty of good indian to be had at Gymkhana, Cinnamon Kitchen, Dishoom etc. Euston has great south indian food, great also for vegetarians.

Apples from the Brogdale Trust

The website says they have Herefordshire Russet & Falstaff for picking but unfortunately doesn't say what they have in the farm shop. Might go tomorrow and check if I get the time.

Yes, I saw. Might well try and make it if the social whirl allows. Not too far to go for that much promise :)

This makes me incredibly jealous. I am an apple geek (some people use connoisseur, but it is really "geek") and I have never seen anything like that many on offer in London town.

Also, my overall experience of Jamie's Italian has been pretty poor. lovely, helpful staff, but the food wasn't very good.

Ottolenghi

I wasn't blown away by Nopi. Agree better to get a great lunch, salad or baked tasty from the Islington branch.

Bristol, Cotham, Stokes Croft, Cheltenham or Gloucester Road? For this weekend!

Thanks for the write-up :) Made a note to visit both the Italian and the cider shop near the Christmas steps next time I'm there!

Best dessert/sweet pie in London?

Indeed they were. I'd argue that that type of pie crossed borders :)

Best dessert/sweet pie in London?

Surely also the type. For example Key Lime Pie is an American thing as we don't grow them here for a start. Pumpkin also etc. Otherwise I'm not sure there will be too much of a difference as the origin of apple pie for one is probably multiple, similar with other fruit pies.

Good call. Honk,y Tonk does key lime pie and mississippi mud pie but does not get great reviews. I can't see the Bodean's dessert menu online, but pretty sure they do similar.
Or you could go the whole hog..

This is true. Actually I can't think of many good pie places. Foxlow used to do a cherry pie but I don't think that is on the menu anymore.

Toffee apples?

I love parkin. Almost never see it to buy though.I should probably make it. For some reason I though you were American!

Toffee apples?

The major supermarkets in the UK also start selling them in the autumn. Mostly the topping is a bit crunchy but mostly it is sticky. It is reddish in colour.
