With Kitchen Pride, London Carries On

During dark times, humor always helps. And no one, but no one, does 'dry humor' better than the Brits.  So it's hats off to the best sign seen recently in London. 

Echoing the World War II designed "Keep Calm and Carry On" signs, it directly honors the brave staff at Ledbury's and several other restaurants (including one owned by Chef Jamie Oliver), who heroically defended their guests and kitchens against looters with rolling pins and frying pans in hand.  Bravo, bravo, bravo ladies and gentlemen!

So smile and keep wishing the best for dear London.  She's a grand city and her restaurants are, not only some of the best in the world, but also possibly among the most courageous.
