Greek cuisine is pivotal to the story of Greece. Food is important in so many cultures, but in some countries it seems all the more central to the story of every day life. In the UK for example, we love our food, but it’s not so deeply engrained in all aspects of life here as it is elsewhere. Head over to Greece however and you’ll find food is a magnet – pulling families together for large mealtime gatherings. And with traditional Greek recipes still followed daily in kitchens across the country, it’s a part of the fabric of life that is rooted in the civilisations of Ancient Greece.
I love London. But then what’s not to love? It’s a city with culture in abundance and I’ve written before about my favourite places to go in London. But when I based myself at Cheval Residences Three Quays by the Tower of London I’d found the perfect excuse to explore more of the best places to visit in London. From Stratford to Barbican, the east of London has much more to offer than people realise. Though every city is a master of transformation, this area of London is constantly on the move. Not so much sweeping out the old, but regenerating, reinventing and recycling to bring new ideas and an unmistakable verve.
