Embankment underground station, London (Villiers Street exit)
Guided by Ann
Short version: Culinary Destinations – Afoot, Fooding & Feasting in The Strand & Covent Garden.
Long version: Take a walk along the Strand. 140 years ago the lower classes bought ham sandwiches in the street here, while the upper classes were eating the magnificent delights prepared for them at the Savoy Hotel by the king of chefs and chef of kings, Auguste Escoffier. You’ve eaten the peach Melba he created – Ann will give you some more of his glamorous peach recipes to run up at home.
Julia Child version: “People who love to eat are always the best people.”
The Pie Crust to Upper Crust Foodies walk takes place at 10.45 am on Saturday, October 26; at 10.45 am on Saturday, January 18; and at 10.45 am on Saturday, April 11. The meeting point is just outside the Villiers Street exit of EmbankmentTube.
N.B. the walk takes about two hours and ends at Twinings, the legendary old tea dealer’s across the street from the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand (and a three-minute walk from TempleTube). See our dedicated Foodies’ London page for all of the Foodies’ London Walks Ann does (four completely different, regularly scheduled, public walks and a Chocoholics’ London Walk that can be booked privately).
“Definition of ‘muffin worry’ – an old ladies’ tea party.”
If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Pie Crust to Upper Crust walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at [email protected] and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.
A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.
