London Book Events – This Week

Although it seems like I travel a lot, I normally don’t—I swear. (Although I think my internal clock, which is going haywire, might disagree with that statement.) However I couldn’t resist coming to London to celebrate the release of Ready for Dessert in the UK, in addition to the UK-edition of The Perfect Scoop.


I’ll be making a quick jaunt to London this Tuesday, September 6th, at Divertimenti, doing a cooking demonstration and booksigning (Facebook RSVP page), as well as hosting a dinner at La Fromagerie on Wednesday evening.



  • I’m attending the event at La Fromagerie! As soon as I got to know about this via tweet from La Fromagerie I grabbed a phone and booked a place. Yay! I can’t wait to meet you and taste all that amazing food. What an adventure!

  • Sadly not in London that week, even though my copy of The Perfect Scoop is, tant pis.

  • Enjoy London David. I’m sorry I missed you at Omnivore. Good intentions and all didn’t get me there.


  • Looking forward to meeting you at Divertimenti on Tuesday evening.

  • Zut alors, you really do lead the dream life! I wish our timing was better aligned – I was just in London a couple weeks ago and enjoyed a lovely egg and watercress salad at La Fromagerie. Enjoy the festivities!

  • the time you come to London… I’m the one escaping to France. for a month. good but bad. oooh yes.

    I got the book a few days before I left – suitcase-less – and now I think it might be the reason why I miss London so much already. xx

  • Sounds like a busy 24 hours! Have fun in London, La Fromagerie is great!

  • Shucks! I wisjh I had know about the Fromagerie event before! I would have loved to attend! The planned dessert selection sounds divine!

  • No plans for Zürich? ;)

    (one has to try one’s luck)

  • Congratulations David, that’s awesome. UK, watch out.

  • Two of my favorite places in London. Have fun!

  • Wish I could be there for you to sign my copy of “The Perfect Scoop”… Are you planning on visting Israel anytime soon? You got lots of fans here.

  • Marvelous. Too bad i can’t be in London and the city should be fantastic this time of year.

  • Visiting London in a few weeks – first time. Your blog really added a lot to my last trip to Paris. We loved every place that you recommended.

    I’ve downloaded your post from a few years ago, “London Called…” but I was hoping that you’d post something new about London..?

  • Hi David,

    I’d like to come to your book event in Paris on the 22 Oct. Do I have to sign up or can I just come by?


  • Hi David,

    I just want to say that I made your Chocolate Idiot Cake for the first time yesterday, and served it with your Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt (also made for the first time) and fresh berries. They were both wild successes and we managed to eat far more of that terribly rich cake than was probably sensible…

    Wonderful recipes, and I’ll definitely be getting Ready for Dessert in the near future.

    Kind regards,
