While the following photos are by no means a complete picture of our recent trip to England with my daughter, I hope you enjoy a taste of our trip!
It was hot and humid in England and I very much enjoyed this refreshing Rose Lemonade at Camden Market- please bring this to the US! My daughter loved Cereal Killer, where you can compose your own cereal bowl with cereals from around the globe and candy toppings:
A delicious crusty baked brie with apricot chutney at a pub in Hampstead:
Vegetarian mezze plate at Bill's in Oxford:
A vegetarian English breakfast at our Oxford hotel:
A vegetarian pie with veg and mashed root vegetables at a pub in Hampton Court:
Excellent cheese souffle appetizer at the new restaurant at the Tate Modern:
The only vegetarian main at the Tate Modern - goat cheese and tomato pie with greens:
Baked brie at Captain Digby's in Broadstairs, Kent:
Halloumi salads were a common menu item (this one at Captain Digby's):
Ploughman's lunch (without the ham) atThe Old Weavers House (1500, that's A.D) in Canterbury:
Spectacular English picnic prepared by my friend C and very much enjoyed at Knole (Vita Sackville-West's childhood home) in Kent:
This vegetarian English breakfast at London's Pride (Heathrow Airport) was excellent, particularly the bubble cake ( that's bubble and squeak, a fried cake made of mashed potatoes and left-over veg - particularly greens, like cabbage) and the vegetarian "sausage":
And, of course, the sentimental favourite, 99s (creamy swirly vanilla ice cream with a chocolate flake):
So what English goodies did I cram into our suitcase to bring home? Stay tuned!
