#London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015 No.11 Books for Cooks @Booksforcooks #xmasinlondon #londonxmas

Welcome to our London Christmas Shopping Guide 2015. 

Over the next few weeks we'll be pointing you in the direction of our favourite shops and shopping neighbourhoods near the meeting and ending points of our London Walks …

LW’s Foodie Expert Ann chips in (no pun intended) with her recommendation for a great London bookshop…

Every night the tv schedules are stuffed full of food. The theory is that people watch this as a kind of gastro-porn, while tucking into their microwave meal. But if you actually enjoy cooking, then you should head over to Books for Cooks, in Blenheim Crescent, Notting Hill. Here you will find floor to ceiling shelves of wonderful cookery books - and not just the latest glossy being promoted with its tv programme. Plus, there is a tiny test kitchen where each day some of the recipes from the books are cooked for lunch in the equally tiny cafe.

Ann – quondam BBC journalist and current star Blue Badge Guide – knows everything there is to know about food: its history, where to buy it, how to cook it, how to enjoy it and, into the bargain, how to keep your figure! Of which she's an exemplar!! And al dente, here's a "bite" – of the sound variety – from her wonderful Foodies' "kitchen". And here's another

Ann's next Foodie Walk is on Saturday, December 19 it's Epicurean, Gourmets', Foodies' London. It goes at 10 am from Monument Tube, the Fish Street Hill exit
