While you can find any cuisine in London, we particularly recommend the Italian food by chef Theo Randall at The InterContinental London Park Lane. While you may think peperoni = pepperoni (yay!), the English translation of this important Italian word is actually "bell pepper," which makes this risotto friendly for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

When I was traveling in Peru, I came across this truly delicious (and healthy) version of risotto using quinoa. The flavor is nuttier with earthiness from the mushrooms, and it has more texture than your traditional risotto. With quinoa's nutritional value, I love that I don't feel guilty when I whip this up on a weeknight.

I used barley because I didn’t have enough risotto in the pantry – feel free to use either, though barley is a far cheaper option. As for blue cheese, use whatever’s available to you – my favorite is Saint Agur. Serve with a bitter salad of escarole or radicchio and a glass of crisp white wine.

Remember Burgers and Fries Week? That wonderful time of the summer when you literally couldn't imagine a better smell than burgers grilling over an open flame, spiked lemonade at the ready? Well it's late fall, which is cold. That's the bad news. The good news is that's no reason not to break out the cast-iron or grill pan, bring the ketchup and mustard to room temperature (hey, burger-crafting is an art) and bake up a batch of our signature homemade burger buns. Also, you have to make your own patties. That's the rule.
