....And, We're Back!

A small sampling of the delicacies offered at Harrods' Food Halls.

Hey! Hi! Hello!

I know it's been a while, but I'm back from my trip to London. I was there to assist two colleagues in leading the "Media: The British Experience" course/trip- what a fabulous time! Not only did we get to check out all sorts of amazing media offerings in London (BFI & Mediatheque, tours of the BBC and the National Theatre, and talks with numerous experts in their respective fields) but we toured Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey, Stonehenge, the Roman Baths at Bath, the Tower of London, and Greenwich, too! (Interested in taking the trip? Keep an eye on this page for updates on the 2009 trip.)

Please click here, here, and here to view my photos from the trip.

But, since we're all here because of the food, I have a special gallery devoted to the Food Halls at Harrods.

From This is the Life.com:

In 1849 Henry Charles Harrod opened a small grocery and placed the emphasis on high-quality customer service. He could hardly have imagined that it would one day turn into one of the most luxurious and indulgent gastronomic experiences known to man. Harrod's food hall - or rather the several halls that make up the whole thing – is the piece de resistance of the world's most famous store, situated in the opulent surroundings of Knightsbridge in central London. Each hall is lavishly decorated according to the food it sells – and there are very few types that it doesn't. Go with a friend and spend a couple of hours soaking up the sights and smells of this shrine to food. And if you can't afford what's on offer, look out for the frequent samplings and promotional launches. One thing is for sure: you won't leave here empty-mouthed.

Click away, get drooling, and enjoy!

I'm green with envy. We went to England the summer before last and I didn't want to come home! I loved it.
