What I wanted to write in this post, was about the food and in particular, Borough Market. This was my first visit here in years and I was absolutely blown away and captivated by the beauty, atmosphere, smells and flavours of the place.
Every single stall I walked by had something I wanted to try something. To be honest, I pretty much did! The vendors are all very clued in about their products and they are very happy for you to try a sample.
The smell which came from the Soul Food stand was awesome. The spices filled the air while the smoke from the barbecue stall wafted through.
I saw a Thai food stand. The women there were preparing some little coconut pancakes. I had to get myself some of those.
They were lovely.
I feel every chef, food lover or amateur cook should visit the market. I've been inspired and motivated to produce some new dishes. A small spice hut which was selling spices (funny enough) drew me in. I picked up a new spice tin, with several new and different spices which I have not used before. I can't wait to cook with them.
Just for your viewing pleasure. I've included pics of the sexiest cake stall I've ever seen.
Get yourself down to the Market!
