Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook
After years of living in Paris, Rachel returned to her hometown of London, which has always been a source of creativity and inspiration for her. Excited by the growing and ever evolving food scene across the city, Rachel decided to make London the focus of one part of her new book ‘Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook’ and TV show (Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook: London).
From East London’s diverse street food scene to Brixton’s now landmark marketplace, Brixton Village, to an ice cream parlour and a tucked-away Austrian café serving up traditional treats, Rachel shines a spotlight on London’s unique food culture. Her recipes reflect this diversity, taking influence from her roots and the people she meets along the way. Exciting dishes range from Cheesy Spätzle with Onion Petals – a twist on an Austrian classic – to Underground Eclairs, inspired by the colours of London’s iconic underground.
Beyond London, the rest of Europe has always intrigued Rachel. With stints living in Germany and Paris, where she found fame with ‘The Little Paris Kitchen’, Rachel decided to cast her net wider and explore some of the continent’s cosmopolitan cities and lesser known foodie destinations.
‘Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook: Cosmopolitan Cook’ took Rachel to the likes of Istanbul’s Princes’ Islands and the iconic city of Naples, Rachel’s favourite Italian city. Rachel channels the inspiration from her adventures into yet more beautiful recipes which can be found in the book, such as Turkish Coffee Creams.
Illustrations from Rachel’s notebook, which went everywhere with her during filming for the TV show, and pictures from her Instagram account are intertwined within the book. It really is like owning your own copy of Rachel’s notebook.
