Why London is a Great Place to Study Culinary

The London area has an unenviable “food rep”: it's often thought of in Britain as being overrun with Indian restaurants, vaguely conceived in Middle America as the world headquarters of dimly lit fish & chips pubs, and implicated by writers Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett as being the home of some of the universe's worst sausage. But the truth is that London is one of the most gastronomically diverse cities on earth, and also boasts a disproportionate number of the world's great hotels. If you want to study culinary arts or hospitality, London is an exceptionally good place to do it.
