WOW !!!, Anna, what a glorious time you had in NY…. The colours, the tastes, the overflow of it all must have sent you home inspired and awash with new ideas.
SOOOOOOO good to get out and about and I hope you feel refreshed in spite of the big heat it must have been. Lovely photos of you…..but hoping we shall see the ‘real you’ here before too long.

A fantastic culinary safari – it almost felt as though we were with you and could taste some of those yummy treats! As you say, a mind blowing experience of choices and experiences and it will be interesting to try the Londolozi variations!

Oh my greatness what an amazing amount of different things to buy in NYC! I think Londolozi Guests are in for the treat of their lives, if not, you & the rest of the staff can enjoy it all! Whats next on your agenda, the recipes that go with all those lovely ingredients???

Next on my agenda is a busy few months creating the next season’s menu which is looking very delicious and finishing the next volume of the cookbook! Keep an eye on the blog for the updates.

I’m going to NYC next month with some foodie friends of mine from California. I’ve printed off your blog and will use it as my guide while I’m there!! Thanks a bunch!

Thank you Mary Beth!
Leave yourself a Sunday morning to do this Deli Safari, as Sunday seems to be the most vibrant day in Chinatown & Little Italy.
EATALY is also best late afternoon so you truly get the hustle and bustle vibe of this fabulous place!

Oh my goodness Anna – I get so excited reading all about your experiences in NY – you have such a wonderful way of making it all come life (next best thing to actually being there!). It makes me want to jump on a plane to the big Apple right now (oh how I wish!!!). Cant wait to read all about your Boston Food Safari – thank you for sharing it all with us.
