I am off to England via France (we are driving there...) early tomorrow morning. I will be totally offline during that time (I really need a break from the computer, since I work with it all the time, so I'm not even bringing my laptop...), but I'm hoping to gather some good food tales while I am there.
We'll be staying in a cottage in a village somewhere in the Cotswolds for most of the time. I'm not quite sure what we will encounter there, culinarically speaking. The last couple of times I've been in the U.K., most of the "good" food experiences have involved anything but traditional British food. We had some great Moroccan food and cheap, tasty Japanese noodles in London, great Indian in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and so on. But this time I want to chase down some of the elusive memories I have of great English food, like good pub food, fish and chips, heart-stoppngly fattening breakfasts, and of course, real proper afternoon teas. Here's hoping they still exist.
The Just Hungry blog will be back again in about two weeks.
