Author Attic is delighted to introduce to you Food writer Jenny Linford. We filmed Jenny talking about her latest book in a charming  tea shop hidden from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street called PostCard Teas.  We  learnt a lot about the diverse London food scene and of course a lot about tea!

Jenny Linford is a London based Food Writer and has written 15 books ranging from Cookery Books to Ingredient guides. You may know her best from her food guide called Food Lover’s London, but she is back with The London Cookbook published by Metro Publications. Jenny talks about her journey of researching for The London Cookbook and offers recipes, food stories and eating out recommendations in London.

The research side of the writing process all sounded rather fun as she told us it was largely based on her husband and son accompanying her around London discovering new recipes, meeting new people and eating scrumptious food. She is also the founder of the successful Gastro-Soho Tours which have been running since 1994. The unique tour offers an insight into Soho’s food scene and you can expect visits to a variety of coffee shops, supermarkets and lots more.

      Hi Agatha, your speculation is exactly right! It is a wonderful read, accompanied by beautiful photography of London, and of course it builds up quite an appetite!
