Harrod’s Food Hall, aka the Forbidden Food Photographs

I have done a bad thing. I have angered the Twinning’s Tea Man. Not only did I photograph the food halls at Harrod’s department store, I continued to do so after I was told by the Twinnings Tea Man that I must not do so. I am likely to serve time for this, surely I won’t be allowed back in the country after this gets out.

In all seriousness though I adore Harrods, not because I dream of doing my shopping in the poshest of places and paying an arm , a leg, and a kidney for them but because all the food is displayed so beautifully and the diversity of ingredients is astounding. Anyway, enough about why I like it, let’s get to the pretty pictures shall we…

My favorite dim sum of all time the Har Gow. This one is about four times the price of what I usually pay for them... but it's Harrods so I guess that's expected right?
