  1. A couple of short reviews: http://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/non-fiction/ferran-adria/family-meal/#review http://www.finedininglovers.com/tips_and_news/leisure/the_family_meal_book_by_ferran_adria.aspx http://ajg2106.blog.com/2011/09/21/first-look-at-ferran-adrias-family-cookbook/ http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903285704576561133920673702.html Mark Bittman: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/03/magazine/bittman-home-cooking-with-ferran-adria.html?pagewanted=all
  2. A review from Saturday in the Guardian is here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2011/oct/01/ferran-adria-el-bulli-family-meal?CMP=twt_gu
  3. Take a stroll at the great Borough Food Market in Southwark at early Saturday: http://www.boroughmarket.org.uk/ Fine sightseeing options close by are Tate Modern, Vinopolis, Shakespeare's Globe and more. For some exciting dishes for dinner go for Champor Champor in the same area. I have been there a couple of times, and it was a success on both occasions. A place with character and a inspired menu.
  4. Here are some places I have on my list for checking out for lunch: http://gothamist.com/2008/02/05/crosby_connecti_1.php http://www.shopsins.com/ http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/thalia/menus/main.html http://www.mileendbrooklyn.com/ Interesting article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/14/dining/14deli.html?pagewanted=1
  5. I am going to New York as well in late August this year. Was looking at this guide by Mike Colameco: http://www.amazon.com/Mike-Colamecos-Food-Lovers-Guide/dp/0470044438/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1273594462&sr=1-1
  6. Then we have this insane home cook http://carolcookskeller.blogspot.com/ http://www.alineaathome.com/
  7. Some cookbooks I really like is these: 1. Le Cordon Bleu Complete Cook: Home Collection One of my most used books for thrustworthy recipes that really tastes great and give good results. 2. Giorgio Locatelli - Made In Italy: Food And Stories 3. Anna Teresa Callen - Food and Memories of Abruzzo: Italy's Pastoral Land 4. Andrew Carmelli - Urban Italy Three very inspirational cookbooks with a lot of great recipes and a well of stories on the food, region and country. Some of the recipes might have some seasonal or hard to get ingredients. 5. Marcus Wareing - How To Cook The Perfect... 6. Kenny Shopsin - Eat Me If you want to do some shorter, but very good cookbooks, these might be an alternative.
  8. This is a great detailed review, thanks. Sounds like a wonderful evening for you all. I would like to check out this restaurant when I go to Rome again this summer.
