Look no further. Celia Brooks founded the original London food tour company “Gastrotours” in 2002.
Celia founded and still runs the original tasting tour at the world-famous Borough Market, based on years of experience and a deep passion for food and cooking.
Celia’s experience extends from her professional inception as a chef for film director Stanley Kubrick, through a career in writing 9 internationally published cookbooks, TV presenting, food consultancy and teaching. Celia’s most recent book was published by Murdoch Books in 2018, entitled “SuperVeg: The Joy & Power of the 25 Healthiest Vegetables on the Planet”.
Turnips, swede and kohlrabi are all members of the cabbage family and are rich in cancer-fighting phytonutrients as well as being super-low in calories, but these veg are often overlooked. When grated raw into salads, they absorb flavours beautifully and deliver a light and fresh flavour of their own which marries well with this sweet, sour and hot dressing. Grab whichever one you can get your hands on: turnips, though available year-round, are best in spring and summer; kohlrabi is best from July to November; and swede throughout the winter until April.
