London’s World of Food A to Z

Eating, drinking and socializing are such vital, distinctive parts of every culture, and integral parts of all great travel experiences. This A to Z is partly about sourcing superb, surprising food, partly about vicarious travel thrills (of nostalgia and of trips still to be done), and partly about the rich stew of stories we will hear from all the people we meet on our journey. It is an open, fluid project: the nation and the restaurant for the next letter will be chosen only at the last minute (though Qatari can probably be fairly confident about being picked!).

Al and I  want to try to cover the world of London as widely as possible. We are looking for countries from right across the world and restaurants all over London. But apart from that we will be driven mostly by whims, spontaneous hankerings, and mysterious tip-offs from exotic strangers. In other words it will be exactly like the best kind of far-flung adventures. Except that our world of food, and our A to Z of nations, will all be neatly corralled within the confines of the M25.
