    Welcome to flavour London which includes an absolute plethora of reviews for you this month.

    We have been to Drakes (Page 12), Goode & Wright (Page 24), Aqua Nueva (Page 60) and Cristini (Page 64). It isnt easy eating this much food, but we are very happy to have been able to do it!

    So the summers over, unless of course we pick up an Indian variety in the next few weeks, and I suppose its now about time to start looking ahead to the festive season. However, Im not one to start contemplating Christmas until at least October, so well wait for the bumper issue well bring out next month. Hope you dont mind...

    We have a great feature on city escapes (Page 15) with some magical ideas on places to venture out to, while Sophie Ruggles has lent us a few of her recipes from My Barcelona Kitchen if staying in is more of your remit at the moment.

    Either way, I hope we have given you a few suggestions that you can grab onto as we march towards the cooler months. Look out for our next issue which will bring you many more reviews, features and recipes to keep you busy.

    Well done!
