Last week I was in London for a quick trip with the family. We did as many of the touristy things as we could during the short, four days that we were there. We needed more time for certain, but we enjoyed the time we had and it was a good “taste” of the city for the kids. Of course, we also ate well during our stay; a fabulous lunch at Yotam Ottolenghi’s Soho restaurant, NOPI, and a delightful, vibrant brunch at Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich’s Honey & Co. were just two of the highlights. I tend to plan our sightseeing days around where we will be eating!
While my husband and son went to a museum, the girls and I had a grown up, afternoon tea party at Fortnum and Mason’s Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon. We had the full experience with scones, finger sandwiches, pastries and individual pots of tea. It was such a sweet time to spend with just them. I hope it’s a fond memory they will have for a long time.
Now we are home, unpacked and the last of the laundry is finally done. The pictures have been uploaded and a photobook of our family trip is on the way.
Now all I need is a nap! And some Salted Butter Caramel-Chocolate Mousse!
This week’s recipe from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen is wonderfully simple to make and can be eaten as is or dressed up with whipped cream and berries. Your choice. It’s heavenly either way!
In his headnote, David says there isn’t much to say about this, and he is right. It’s salty, buttery, caramel(y) and oh, so chocolatey! It hits all the right notes for a perfect dessert. It’s best served in small pots because a few bites is all you need to satisfy even your biggest sweet tooth!
If you try this at home, be aware, it includes raw eggs, so if you or your guests are sensitive to that, keep it in mind.
This week’s recipe can be found on page 258. For details on recreating this and other recipes, check out the CookTheBookFridays site and see others who are also cooking the book-
