Basil kept me awake!!
So after not a lot of sleep last night as Basil thought he saw bats flying into the bedroom, I decided an antipasto meal was all I’d have the energy to prepare for this evening’s supper. And though sleep deprived, off to Borough Market with me for some awesome morning goodies!
Obviously coffee was needed and who better to visit other than the fabulous-
One flat white and pastry later Oregano is ready to shop!
Brandiso, I see you! I’ll have a selection of iberico ham, some goats cheese from Avila, anchovies YES YES YES!
Now for something acidic and fresh I’m thinking tomatoes, mint, bit of red onion and a little homemade dressing. But my god the tomatoes are expensive! And all for a bit of colour! Alas, I’m a sucker for beauty!
Now what more could I need? Sourdough-tick! Organic crystal lemon cucumbers? I never heard of such crystals! Defo!
And then just when I thought the crystals were enough I spotted a chocolate fudge brownie out of the corner of my eye! Balls! I have to buy you. But you’re only 1.50 and I’ll share you with Basil and it is almost the weekend and…….Oh I just love chocolate!
Right, hometime. Back to My Kitchen to unleash the goods…..till I see this….
More cheese? But of course! It is antipasto for supper!
Neal’s Yard I’ll see you a Westcombe Cheddar from Somerset and Stinking Bishop is beautifully ripe you say? Oh go on!
A few tastings later I’m set! It’s definitely back to the kitchen with me!
