Westfield gets a taste of South West France

Croque Gascon – Westfield – LondonLast week, to much long-time-coming fanfare, the capital’s ultimate retail behemoth opened its doors and invited shopaholics to prise open their hearts (and wallets) for the all-singing (Leona Lewis) all-dancing (Sugababes) opening of Westfield. Europe’s largest shopping centre comprises a 43-acre patch of West London north of Shepherd’s Bush, in White City and has all the usual high street suspects as well as a few designer exclusives, but really what had our mouths watering was the menu awaiting us at Croque Gascon. It’s a great incentive for those who visit London to shop here, bringing the flavours and produce from South West France – cheeses, charcuterie and the best of the region’s wines – to W12.
