East London Food
“A celebration of the energy and creativity at work in the East End. This is a joyous, inspirational, heart-warming book.” Nigel Slater
East London has become the most exciting place to eat in the UK. Home to a vibrant and diverse community, it has attracted a wave of fresh gastronomic talent, including top chefs, young producers and bold entrepreneurs. This book follows forty people at the heart of a culinary phenomenon — from Michelin-starred chefs and specialist butchers to wild foragers and urban beekeepers. With in-depth interviews and lavish photography, East London Food guides you on where to go, what to eat and how to cook it at home.
