Borough Market

I’ve had such a piggy day! Shailee and I went to Borough Market and didn’t know where to start. We fuelled up with a visit to the Monmouth Coffee Company where I sipped on the best cappuccino I’ve ever had. Then we browsed, ate, browsed, sampled, ate some more and so it went on in this fashion until my taste buds were overworked and desensitized… I knew it was time to quit when I couldn’t fully enjoy white truffle honey!

I was really impressed with the pride each person took in the stall they either owned or worked for. Everyone was selling their product not because they had to but because they believed it was the best out there. I swear I don’t recall walking by one empty stall. Everywhere I looked there will people selling and people eating. I’ve never longed to cook as much as I have today. You can get your hands on ingredients that you’d probably have to drive to several specialty shops to find and that’s IF you’re lucky! Borough Market is really such a treat and a source of massive inspiration. Can’t wait to get back to New York and start cooking!
