Oooh, it sounds lovely (I've read about Petersham on Keiko's site before now). I must drag my other half out there one weekend. Have you tried any of the recipes from Skye's book yet?



I work with Skye and I can tell you that the tables will be turned today when I show her your blog for your words will undoubtedly reduce her to tears as they nearly have me. It's such an incredible feeling when someone understands what you are trying to do. By the way, I'll be there on Sunday morning if you're in the area and want to pop down.

one little thing....we're not open for dinner.

Sarah more thing....and a very easy mistake to make as it's been so widely misreported....Skye worked with Peter at Green Street not The Sugar Club....wonderful blog which I've just told Skye to look at tonight. I think you've made her day!


What a wonderful write-up of a truly delicious and special meal we were able to share with you, Johanna! (Making my future post on that meal a truly difficult one to write:) My subsequent meals in various London eateries - all tasty and in a good company - have just not been the same..


Oh, I have been looking forward to this review - and I'm not disappointed!! When you told me the other night you had been reduced to tears I just knew there was a wonderful account of a meal to look forward to - and here it is! Th food looks and sounds absolutely amazing and I love the "shabby chic" idea of glorious food in a nursery surrounded by plants for sale and dirt floors. Now I really can't wait to go!


skye gets such rave reviews here in her native australia, but i've never eaten her food. from all reports it does seem to have that simplicity to it without losing elegance or flair. i loved the look of the seabass carpaccio and the syllabub with verjuice poached rhubarb sounded wonderful!

What a wonderful post- it gives me faith that indeed spring will come! Thanks for this glimpse of a fabulous place and a fabulous meal!


I am a very big fan of Pettersham nursery and totally agree with you in that it is one of the best restaurants in London. I did go there for the first time with Keiko and Anna from Baking for England. how lucky that you live not far from there.


Not much to say really, other than I'm very jealous. Mx


sounds wonderful and the food looks to die for, only I could not decide which dessert I should order - all of them? :-)


I've been wanting to go to Petersham for months so really need to get into gear and go! Just wish it was closer to home...

I bet it would be amazing this late spring... maybe in time for my birthday, hrmmm...


Would this be the restaurant that Beatrix Potter would have had...out at her country farm?
Sounds like heaven. I have a country cafe of my own in mind someday...Thx
