For those of you who haven’t heard me moaning yet – I am in exile in Wales (no, not Cardiff, somewhere VERY rural) for a few months and I miss London! I am suffering from a restaurant and culture cold turkey and if I don’t get my fix soon I see terrible things happening…
So, there are no restaurants to talk about were I live, or rather exist, now and I am finally sick of Innocent Vegetable Pots. The food in the canteen is basically inedible and I was thinking of taking a couple of pictures of the stodge they serve here, so that not only my appetite is spoiled (I take care of my readers ).
Taken all of this together I have decided I have to start cooking now. In seriousness. And indeed I made a very decent (and very easy) salad today which I think was good enough to post about it. Was it really good or was it just good for Wales and my standards are already dropping I cannot answer, but judge for yourself.

Who would have thought that there is a lovely French restaurant combined Jazz bar at the border of Elephant &Castle and Kennington? Even though I live rather close, I tend to ignore this area and if it wouldn’t be for the White Bear Theatre (a very decent pub theatre on Kennington Park Road) I would still be in ignorance about the fact that you can actually have a swell night out in Kennington.
