Home Sweet and Savory Home

Rachel Khoo has returned to London, the city where she was born and bred, to get reacquainted with one of the world's most exciting capitals and its fantastic food.

Birds of a Feather

Rachel looks to take inspiration from the quirkiness and individuality that London fashion embodies, so she checks out a fried chicken pop-up restaurant, Thank Cluck, nestled in the back of a chic boutique.

Raising the Roof

Then she heads to a hip rooftop bar, the Dalston Roof Park, to sample the biggest trends in food and drinks.

London Longing

Rachel's nostalgia for growing up in London kicks in, and she seeks out a little Austrian cafe to learn to create one of her grandma's favorite dishes, strudel.

Culture Clash

Rachel explores more of London's love affair with different cultures and how this mirrors her own European and Asian family mix (her Austrian mum and Malaysian dad).

She heads to Chinatown to learn a spectacular noodle-pulling technique.

On the Move

Rachel reflects on how the city binds so many people and traditions together, in part due to London's iconic transport systems.

She rolls her sleeves up to make sausage and mash for some hungry taxi drivers in one of London's historic cab shelters.

Chipping In

London proves that, whether high-end or humble, there are many ways to indulge. Rachel finishes her London tour by discovering the secrets of a proper fish-and-chip shop.

Rachel's Diary

Tag along with Rachel as she meets people who share her lifelong culinary passion and uncovers new trends and the colourful diversity of the capital's cooking; sketching, snapping pictures and recording what she discovers in her notebook along the way, to inspire new dishes in her own kitchen.
