My personal haul from Borough market

(viewed 1499 times)
Bookmark and Share
My actual purchases from the market yesterday, reflecting my personal obsessions - cheese, coffee, fine meats :-) Put them all together into a very Northern European breakfast - this reminds me of the last time I was in Berlin, long breakfasts with cheeses, coffee, salamis...yum.

Details for those who are interested, or simply want to head down to Borough Market and get their own :-)

The coffee is a Rwandan - deep and earthy, complex bitter chocalte notes. very tasty. As you can see, I had one cup with milk & sugar, and one small plain just to savour the undiluted taste.

The various cheeses - I've forgotten the name of the hard cheese. it's an alpine cheese, a mix of emental/gruyere flavour, nutty with a lingering after taste. The ginger cheese is just sublime - a soft cheddar with well distributed ginger rather than discrete chunks. Damn tasty. The Fleurette is a very young cheese of the Brie family, but this one is rather like eating fresh milky cream. Exceedingly good. The Boerenkaas is a gouda with cloves.

Bread and meat - the bread is a San Fransisco Sourdough. Very good toasted (damn I miss sourdough muffins - wish I could find those over here. you would not believe how hard it is to find anything other than sourdough rye - not that I'm not very fond of rye, but sometimes I want white) More of the amazing fresh field mushroom pate (I bought extra to freeze this time) And a pork and marjoram salami, and some wild boar chorizo round out the selection. Not a bad haul all in all.

Damn I like food :-)

Hahahaha. It is a little poo like, eh?

And you know what Bronx? While I was looking at all this, I kept thinking how cool it would be if you were here to enjoy as well. You'd get such a kick out of Borough market. Next time. Hurry up and get rich and famous so you can pop over anytime.

Well, the most recent attempt at that almost worked, but apparently, not quite. As soon as I can get back over there, will do. However YOU missed your december visit to NYC, missy.

Tell me about it - I missed my December visit to ANYWHERE! Was most frustrating. I'm contemplating heading over in the summer though - I'll keep you posted :-)
