goodbye!













It's with mixed feelings that I say goodbye to the old "Kristen in London" and prepare to say hello to the new...

So many wonderful memories of beginning my efforts nearly five years ago, of "meeting" you all, learning to express myself, cook better meals and take better photos of them! Avery growing up before our eyes... our lives in London taking shape with ever happier detail. And "Kristen in London" recorded them all, with such pleasure.

But all good things must change, and so "Kristen in London" will appear in the next few days as a completely different-looking world, but peopled by the same characters, places and memories that we have all come to love. And...

A RECIPE INDEX! It is simply a beautiful thing to behold. There are some things that need tweaking, like moving "Crabcakes" out of "Desserts", but that sort of detail will keep me busy in the longer summer weeks ahead. You'll be able to look up the recipe for the very dessert Avery is holding here, her adored Eton Mess. And then you can make it at home. Someday, of course, I hope you'll find all the recipes between the covers of my very own cookbook, but until then, they're free for all.

So be looking for the new and improved us, and let me know what you think! I'll meet you there.

I for one am looking forward to the new site, especially the recipes! It's a chilly winter morning here in Sydney - the last few days have been some of the coldest on record - so i will be heading to the SOUP section very quickly!!

Good luck with it!

How nice, Nell! It is resoundingly HOT here in London, relentlessly so, weeks in a row, which is great for Wimbledon! You will find 28 tempting soups in the index, although I can see there are a couple of repetitions. I have so much work ahead of me to red through, choose, delete, which is actually a lot of fun and very inspiring. Try the "Sag Aloo" first!
