Healthy eating continues to be a major concern, with obesity and diet-related illnesses still dominating headlines. But where can we find the top-quality, naturally produced ingredients that we're being urged to eat? The best-selling "Essential Guide to London's Best Food Shops" is the key to sourcing the abundance of fine food that the capital has to offer. This completely updated edition features 30 shops that have opened since the guide was last published, as well as a comprehensive section on London's burgeoning farmers' markets. Alphabetical, area-by-area listings point us to the most wholesome ingredients available in the city's food halls, specialist shops and markets, and through its mail-order services. And each entry features in-depth descriptions of the produce on offer, plus practical information including travel tips, opening hours and payment details. As food writer Nigel Slater once said: "Shopping is more important than cooking" - or, in other words, first-rate ingredients will always have the edge over cooking techniques. "The Essential Guide to London's Best Food Shops" is quite simply the food-shopping bible for anyone who lives in or visits the capital.
