A tip from a friend led us to a fabulous little bookstore in London called Books for Cooks. Located just off the Portobello Market, the store is stocked from floor to ceiling with cookbooks — everything from the known to the unknown. In addition to selling cookbooks, the store has a test kitchen where they try out recipes for select cookbooks. The favorite recipes from the test kitchen are compiled in these miniature volumes, which are not available anywhere else in the U.S. except through Loulies’ new Our Market!
We have shared our copies with friends, given dozens as gifts, and always tote them along on vacations away from home. Our copies are splattered and stained, and kept close by in the kitchen. We especially like the menu suggestions (Dinner in a Dash, Midsummer Lunch, A Do Ahead Dinner) found in the back of the books.
