I’m not a huge fan of British food. Sorry! I am however a big fan of some of the diversity of the London food scene. Craving Malaysian roti canai? Got it. Want a real taco de carnitas? Done. One of my favorite spots in London is Ottolenghi. The chef and author, Yotam Ottolenghi, wrote one of my all time favorite cookbooks, Plenty. I love his unusual combinations and fresh flavors. When I am in London I make sure to stop by one of his delis. I know it will be the best meal I have while I’m here. Keep reading for the items I picked up this time. Perhaps they will inspire you (as they have inspired me) to try something new in the kitchen!
