Foodie Walk - London Guided Walks - March 2011
8 of us meet up in Central London to do a walk with the renowned London Walks company.
Our guide Anne told us that sausage company Walls started selling ice-cream because there was no refrigeration in those days so the sausages could only be sold in the winter months.
Fortnum and Mason - Stunning window displays
We stopped for several tastings on the walk including this Icecream parlour. The tiramsu icecream was delicious! Also stopped at a large bakery and had a taste of olive bread which went down very well.
Anne also told us tales of a large herd of cows that were at one time stabled in central London to provide much of the cities milk. This was around the time of cholera outbreaks and the two things could well be linked!
The walk continued on through Soho and finished in China Town where we stopped for a delicious chinese meal.
Some of the group then went on to have a wander round the stalls and watch street acts in Covent Garden.
