I’ve been quite the busy bee lately. Lots of late nights and busy days.
Have you been the same?
I thought we’d do a quick little catch up of what’s been going on.
I was wandering around Camden the other day on some very official business, and had to take a minute to stare at the beautiful Camden Lock. There are certain parts of London that make you feel as if you are no longer in a bustling, cosmopolitan city. Camden Lock is one of those places.
If you haven’t strolled around Camden Lock on a Sunday afternoon, you now know what you’re doing this Sunday.
Wander the food market and sample dishes from all over the world, shop around the strange little shops and stalls, and be sure to get your fill of people watching with the funky crowd that calls Camden home.
Along with the goths, hipsters, and strange individuals forever adding flavour to Camden, I found these feathery friends floating along the Lock.
During the week, I had the lovely opportunity to dine in the Italian Room at Novikov. The room is massive and airy with a modern, Tuscan decor. We had a lovely three course meal of Beef Carpaccio, Flat Stone Roast Chicken with Rosemary Roast Potatoes, and a delicious Tiramisu. Then we wandered through the “Market Place” in the Asian Dining Room which had beautiful vegetables, spices, and seafood displayed in front of the kitchen. The best thing about October: Pumpkin flavoured everything.
Had a lovely Whole Foods date with lots of sushi.
Found some stunning artichokes displayed at Whole Foods. Aren’t they beautiful? I also found a stand jam-packed with “Thanksgiving Essentials.” I can’t wait for this year’s feast!
Another stunning display at Whole Foods of Mushroom Madness. I see a theme developing here involving displays of food…
I tried Vita Coco’s new Tropical Fruit flavoured Coconut Water. I’d recommend trying it, but definitely prefer Coconut Water without flavouring. Natural goodness. I’ve been getting excited for Halloween and loved these spooky cupcakes from the amazing bakery at Whole Foods.
I just love the simple fresh flavours of Thai Summer Rolls. The Thai Basil and Peanut Sauce pack such incredible flavour. I may just have to do a Recipe Post on these. Look what I found! These truly are the Brit version of an American favourite: Sour Patch Kids. The kids look and taste different, but are still delicious!
I’m glad we caught up. Anything exciting that you’ve been up to that I should try in LDN?
