Looks just like my kitchen -- so spacious.... um, NOT!

My whole house could fit in that kitchen. But yours is even a quarter of that size, I'm moving to Bay Area.

Keira I visited the Royal Pavilion and the kitchen last month--it was wonderful, but the kitchen is much smaller than this image suggests!

Ian Kelly, who wrote the excellent bio of Beau Brummell also wrote a book about Careme which I highly recommend.

Janet, thanks to your lovely blog recently and before about Ian Kelly's book (and when it was available on the web for a steal), I own a copy of its deliciousness.
