Every bride needs something red.
I spent the morning wedding shopping and came away with a big crimson bag full of Valentino.
Keeping with the scarlet theme, next stop was a healthy booze-free lunch at a much-loved fave of mine, Ottolenghi.
It seems like you can’t turn around without seeing one of Ottolenghi’s best-selling cookbooks everywhere you go – but have you ever looked at those recipes? The simplest salad has like forty ingredients! Ain’t nobody got time for that!
In London we are so fortunate to have a few of these delis from which to grab a scrummy lunch that would otherwise take half a day to prepare!
And holy moly! So good.
Too bad the weather wasn’t nearly as nice. Thankfully, the staff had plenty of wooly blankets on hand – in the perfect color!
My sugar detox was put to the ultimate test surrounded by all this sweetness!
Aren’t these blackcurrant meringues a thing of beauty?
Ultimately, I couldn’t resist the charms of this seductive little tart!
Nearly as tasty as my version!
It was time to keep moving.
… After I picked up a few of these mini-meringues on my way out.
What a gorgeous day to paint the town red!
