Borough Market

Yesterday I spent much of the afternoon at the Borough Market. It was one of those times when I wished that photographs came with a "scent option" - the smells at the market were incredible. Cheeses, olives and various marinades, fresh fish and game, burnt espresso, curry simmering in huge vats for people to taste, and all mixed with the curiously pleasing odour of garlic and mulled wine.

I managed to get past the fudge stall without buying anything, but when I walked past the brownie tower (photo below) it was game over. And god, was it a good brownie. There was also a large red deer (headless) for £200 but however would I have carried it home?

I'll bet those olives are amazing...I am jealous of European markets!

I'm not actually a huge olive fan, but I did buy some amazing tapenade that friends and I ate at a Christmas tree decorating party on Saaturday night.

Love the new photo. It's a classic Sarah Williams expression.

I have a classic expression? Like, a "I think you're an asshole" smirk? You have no idea how often that got me in trouble in high school.
