Product description

Find your way round London with this indispensable guide to theatre and food, and its history. The perfect compendium of fact, fiction and the favourite places of the theatrical and literary personalities of the Golden Era in the West End, offers a guide to some of the most glamorous and historic restaurants in London, famous for their theatrical associations; the Caprice, the Savoy, Rules, the Cafe Royal and the Ivy. There is a range of recipes from the stars of the Golden Age of British theatre, including Rex Harrison, Noel Coward, Vivien Leigh, John Gielgud and Michael Redgrave, many of them classic English recipes but a few surprises as well. Poetry, quotations and anecdotes are included throughout and you will find some old favourites and quite a few new ones. Last but not least, you will find a complete history of the West End's most exciting century since William Shakespeare trod the boards four hundred years ago. If you want to find out what a well-known actress did when her dog left a pool in the back of a cab or when it was all right to leave your dirty teacup on the stage, read on...
