Some of the best fish in South London is to be found at Robin Moxon's fishmongers, although there is stiff competition from Veasey's at Crystal Palace Food Market

The best venison in South London comes from William Rose in East Dulwich, just across the road from Moxons

And, completing a nicely culinary triangle with the two above, there's Tim Franklin's excellent farm shop and restaurant. We've sold our honey there, and always stop off for a coffee and a chat with Tim, even if we're not buying some of his excellent stock

When we first moved to Crystal Palace, one of the things missing there was a good deli. Not any more! Manish Utton-Mishra has opened Good Taste on The Triangle, selling all sorts of lovely charcuterie, breads, cheese, beers, wine, teas and coffees. He's also now opened Salt + Pickle, a lovely little restaurant just across the road

Nik, one day, was wondering if there was such a thing as a Cookipedia...

We spent Christmas Day 2007 having Moroccan cooking lessons in Riad Laroussa, a very fine hotel/guesthouse in the centre of Fez's Medina - 

A fantastic hotel in India, in the lovely city of Pondicherry, is Villa Shanti. We had amazing stays there in 2013 and 2014, and can't wait to go back again. 

Leelu's Homestay, a lovely guest house in Fort Kochin in Kerala where we had more curry lessons, this time from Leelu herself

The Gallery of Regrettable Food is a splendid site that celebrates the terrible food photography and corporate cookbooks of the 50s, 60s and 70s

More cooking lessons, this time in July 2015 in Japan, at the Women's Assocation of Kyoto
