I love London. The melting pot of different food cultures never ceases to inspire and excite me. So I was really excited to hear that the team at Herb Lester was going to be making a new London map.
I’m a big fan of Herb Lester maps, and typically take one wherever I go – like the time Frankie and I went on a gastronomic tour of Spain’s capital, Madrid.
For those who don’t know, Herb Lester maps are made in collaboration with illustrators, artists, writers and other experts, to produce something that is a delight for both stationery aficionados and those with a sense of wanderlust.
And London’s Larder is no exception. It’s a feast for the eyes, as well as serving as a guide to all of London’s hottest and tucked away foodie delights. There’s something for everyone, from divine delis to honey shops; the best places to get your cheese and meat, and craft brewers.
As a lover of illustration, it’s really lovely to see something so beautiful. I love the bold colours and the way London’s landmarks have been reimagined by illustator Cajsa Holgersson.
I can’t wait to get out into the big smoke and put my copy to good use – although as you can see I’ve already been earmarking some places to check out!
