I love Harrods Food Halls. A stroll amongst the counters and shelves filled with meats, cheeses, confections, and other delectables certainly can cause one to fall victim to the "eyes bigger than your stomach" syndrome. And the food isn't the only draw. I remember back in 1990 when a friend and I were there, we saw this very tall, big, mustachioed man walking quickly past us. It was Tom Selleck! The older British women standing near me were apoplectic. And well, okay, I admit that I might have been in a dither too.
Anyway, a friend recently gave me a 1985 copy of Harrods Cookery Book. I haven't had time to test any of the recipes, but I'm anxious to do so. There are so many dishes that look perfect for entertaining. But it's not only the recipes that are enticing. The photos are as well. So, to whet your appetite, take a look below.
