London’s most renowned food market borough market is the place to visit if you’re into food (cooking it or eating it!)
The people, the place and the quality of the food you will find there is what makes it so special and after my first visit at the weekend I already cant wait to go back!
For anyone wanting to seek the best ingredients for their cooking, to try new and exciting foods or for people who just want to widen their knowledge of food, Borough Market is the place to go! Here are my must tries from the Jubilee Place Trading Area of the market.
The Pieminister Mushroom Pie– Those looking for a traditional English pie will love the array of flavours available from The Pieminister, from “Moo and Blue” to their vegetarian “Heidi Pie” there is something for everyone, but my favourite has to be the simple Mushroom Pie. Jam-packed with chunks mushrooms in a creamy garlic sauce this is a classic match made in heaven.
Whirld Dark Chocolate Swirl Fudge– The handmade, all natural fudge from Whirld comes in a wide array of flavours including Salted Caramel, Peanut butter Rocky Road and Clotted Cream. Served in a pick ‘n’ mix style self service I was like a kid in a candy shop and tried a bit of each flavour on offer, but my top pick was dark chocolate swirl which is topped with efty chunks of rich dark chocolate. Worth a mention is their seasonal Hot Cross Bun fudge, which was surprisingly yummy!
Comptoir Gourmand Early Grey Macaroon– Comptoir Gourmand sells an amazing array of cakes, pastries and my favourite, macaroons! Having tried a box of 10 I can confidently say that their earl grey Macaroon is amongst one of the best I have ever tried.
The Flour Station Rosemary and Sea Salt Focaccia– Born in the kitchen of Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant The Flour Station’s range of bread and pastries continue to evolve. I tried the Rosemary and Sea Salt Focaccia, keen to stick to traditional flavours that I know I love and this impeccably seasoned bread didn’t disappoint.
Let me know your Borough Market musts and I might just try them out next time I visit!
