Are the food halls of Harrod’s to foodies what the caverns of Moria are to dwarves? A wonderful place for wandering and ogling. Emerged with a selection of Leonidas chocolates, my favourites, and a smoked salmon roll. Wandered up past Buckingham Palace to St James’s Park, another favourite, to sit by the water and watch the birds … and be pestered by a squirrel, as bad as seagulls on the Picton foreshore! … where I ate my little lunch. Well, not the chocolates, they were for after dinner. Anyway, it was a lovely little interlude in a busy day, and the generous amount of smoked salmon in the roll made me think that the egg mayonnaise sandwich I grabbed from the ubiquitous Pret a Manger was about the same price and far less tasty. In other words, make Harrod’s your local!
