London foodies have never had it so good! It doesn’t matter what specific tastes we have, this famous capital has something to keep everybody extremely happy. It isn’t just the abundance of cafes and restaurants that are worth a mention; although this city does present every option imaginable from street vendors to Michelin-star venues.
The London foodie scene continues with tours and tasting experiences, cookery courses, farmers markets, nutrition lessons, opportunities to grow your own food as well as breweries and cheesemongers as well. It really is the complete package perfect for anyone with a devotion to all things culinary.
London is steeped in traditional history and that goes for its gastronomic offering too. Events such as afternoon tea date back to the 1800s when The Langham took on the ceremony adopted by Queen Victoria’s ladies in waiting and made it a regular spectacle. Good ‘ol pie and mash shops began to spring up around the docks in the East End around the same time. And a young man named Joseph Malin introduced London to fish and chips during the same era.
The capital developed its culinary prowess over the following century; surviving and evolving during wars and economic turmoil. Nothing can hold it back and the food lovers in London are now living the dream as a result.
