The mention of British food tends to be greeted with snorts of derision. British goes with food like socks with sandals - i.e. not at all! However, from the ashes of World War II rationing, a new culinary sensibility has arisen in Britain, especially London. Attitudes have changed and continue to change - food is no longer seen as simply a fuel it is now savoured - discerning foodies seek out the best of British ingredients with an unlikely fervour. London is at the crossroads of this culinary revolution. As the Empire's staging post London was the first port of call for the people and goods that streamed into this island from all across the world. It's here that the first coffee, chocolate and tea were brought; Port from Porto, Sherry from Jerez, fragrant cardamom from India, Mozzarella and Prosciutto from Italy. London is the archetypal melting pot. Ingredients arrive here from the four corners of the earth and are blended, mashed and spliced together by chefs from as many different places again. If British food is an attitude then here is where its consciousness is formed.
