London: Ottolenghi

All credit to Grace for getting me quite hooked on this Israeli-born London-based chef’s magic with vegetables. So it was fitting that my last lunch in London was at his bright, airy Islington outfit – a perfect backdrop to showcase a mouthwatering display of salads and sweets. Quite the unlikely combination, but it works! After a great conversation over pea hummus, delicately roasted aubergines and vibrantly tangy slaw, we stepped out into a balmy afternoon breeze that buzzed us all the way to Camden Market. A caution though, no hot foods are served, but isn’t that just perfect for a summer afternoon picnic? Yum.
