Books for Cooks

4 Bleinheim Crescent, Notting Hill, London W11 1NN



Books for CooksThe formula for the Books for Cooks kitchen is simple: one main course and one dessert is offered on a daily changing menu, served with water or wine. So once you're done browsing for cookery books the mouth-watering smells that spring from the kitchen/coffee shop at the back will tempt you to stay for lunch - where you can sample some of the recipes you've read. This shop for cookery book fanatics was once managed by Clarissa Dickson-Wright and is a real treat which is worth making the trip to Notting Hill for. Even if you don't like what's on offer that day there are plenty of excellent options in the nearby streets of Blenheim Crescent and Portobello Road. On weekends the market ensures that it's impossible to get a table - and there's no option to book - so make sure you get there early, browse the books and bag a table. In a place that's all about food, it's no wonder the culinary experience is one to savour.
