Thank you…


This morning, I woke to a wonderful surprise. Lady P, châtelaine of , has given me a Lovely Blog award. Do go and visit her in her delightful, thoughtful world of colour, cupcakes and whimsy.

I hardly imagined, when I began my blog a couple of months ago, how much fun it would be sharing my recipes. It still amazes me that I can cook something, shoot it, post it and - while it’s still cooling on the counter - I might get a comment about it from places as far away from my North London kitchen as Australia or America. For an instant gratification kid like me, it’s thrilling.

I’m supposed to pass the love around and nominate favourite blogs of my own. I’ll do that in a few days but for now, I was trying to think of a way to say thank you to Lady P. She lives near Seattle so I thought a cup of coffee might be appropriate. This isn’t just any cup of coffee, but the best cup of coffee in London, possibly the world. I’m not kidding. It was made by Gwilym Davies who sells coffee from a cart in our local flower market every Sunday morning and in April he was crowned World Barista Champion in Atlanta. It seems like a suitable gift for a Lady.


  1. Ohhhhhhh - I do LOVE my coffee(so smart of your to surmise that!) - and I am enchanted with your photo and your comments - and it is the most perfect gift, ever - thank you. My my - you, all the way over there and me all the way over here - and were having coffee, the best cup of espresso, together.
    Tell dear Gwilym - he can thrown down some GOOD coffee - I loved every drop!

  2. Oh very well deserved. Good on ya mate. It would appear you have touched lots of people and I am not at all surprised given your quick wit, expressive writing and superb recipes. I suspect this is the first of many - congrats Debora.

    Gorgeous looking brew!

  3. Congratulations, you deserve it - your blog is lovely! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I, too, love the instant gratification.

  4. Lady P - You're so welcome. I think great coffee is one of the cornerstone of civilisation.

    Mariana - You are such a dear. Thank you very much for your lovely comments.

    Croquecamille - Thank you. Loved your blog - it appeals to my out-of-control Francophilia - I'm sure I'll visit you often.

    Girl - Isn't it though? If you ever get to Columbia Road on Sundays, you should definitely visit him. He's in the little courtyard bit.
