Posted by Linda Davidson

People who like to rustle up something special on their caravan hobs and cookers may wish to take a caravan holiday to the London area to sample some of the world class food on offer.

Top restaurants in London are currently celebrating the latest round of Michelin starts being awarded as 53 London-based establishments made it into the 2011 Michelin Guide, including a number of well-known faces.

Gordon Ramsay's Chelsea restaurant keeps its three stars, as does Alain Ducasse's establishment within the Dorchester.

New additions include Helene Darroze at The Connaught, with the respected French chef awarded two stars for her restaurant within the top London hotel.

"This awesome news reflects what many of us have known for a long time - London is a fabulous destination for gourmands," commented mayor of London Boris Johnson.

He added that London has some "lip-smacking gastronomy we can all be immensely proud of".

The Michelin guide was first published in 1900 as a free guide distributed to motorists but it has developed over the years to become the benchmark in gourmet dining comprised of 25 guides covering 23 countries and more than 45,000 establishments.
