Good food has been an important part of my life (see Single Gourmet Traveller post, July 2011), from exploring Italian delis and French patisseries in London’s Soho as a child with my family, to cooking in my parents’ pub restaurant in my late teens; then working as a cookery book editor in my twenties followed by years of cooking for family and friends – and growing a large and much-used cookery book collection! Preparing a meal, even just for myself, is never a chore but always a delight. Cooking is my passion and so is travel – from exciting cities bursting with life to quiet retreats and places of beauty. But wherever I go, food is always a big part of my enjoyment, seeking out the best food from smart restaurants to beach cafes; exploring street markets and putting together a picnic from the best the local delis have to offer.
I want to show you that if you are ever eating in or out or travelling on your own, you need never compromise the gourmet or intrepid traveller in you. But it’s not just a blog for the single gourmet traveller, here’s a wealth of great ideas for everyone who loves good food and travel: places to eat, places to stay; creative ideas for cooking at home; the best places to buy food to bring home; and food talk and travel talk of every kind.
The Single Gourmet Traveller lives in South West London – and travels as often as she can! She also works as a freelance book editor.
The views expressed in this blog are entirely her own and the results of her own explorations into the world of food and travel; she receives no sponsorship.
