There are limits. For most of us, at least - one of the contestants was hospitalised TWICE.

I made this recipe yesterday, and very nice it was too.

A visit yesterday to 'The Rib Man' with his stall between King's Cross and St Pancras. Tale one soft white bap, shove in not one but two fistfulls of shredded, slow-cooked pig and dollop on the barbecue sauce (I wimped out of having the 'Holy ######' sauce option).

Pretty damn good. I normally adhere to Miss Piggy's adage that you should never eat anything larger than your own head. Fortunately, I have a very large head.

The area North of the two stations is undergoing much improvement. Wander up towards the canal, past the giant rainbow-lit birdcage with the swing inside, and you see the fountains in front of the art college. It's still a work in progress, but much less seedy than it used to be.

A big heads-up for anyone in/heading to London - the last two evenings (around 6pm), I've walked overground between Kings Cross and St Pancras and noticed that the Eat Street food stalls are staying open late. They normally close at about half past two, so I'd need to take a half day off work to sample their wares. :)

Just checked the Eat Street website, and the new opening hours (for the duration of the Olympics) is 11am - 8pm.

I like the food you get at camden market. Gourmet it isn't but it's interesting, varied, tasty and cheap.
I've just been cleaning out my food cupboards.
I've found lots of half empty packets of curry ingredients- cardomom, coriander seeds the lot. I've just blitzed the whole lot together, regardless of ratios or anything like that: I make curry by the seat of my pants as it were, anyway: result an interesting easy to use curry powder.

I have just bought a bottle of wasabi mayonnaise, from Hellmans' new range. It's very slightly green, and I have no idea what it will go with.

Indeed. It might also be good as a dip for french fries.

Back to Eat Street at Kings Cross again last night. A multicultural feast of chicken & chorizo taco, followed by a bhel puri and finished off with Italian ice cream (salted caramel flavour).

Taste? Lovely.
Cost? Seven quid for the lot.

I don't bake much, just the occasional loaf of soda bread (because I rarely have time to make regular bread, with all the rising time etc.).

Incidentally, soda bread with finely chopped black olives and preserved peppers mixed into the dough is a very fine thing, especially eaten warm with plenty of salted butter.


Be interested to get your soda bread recipe. I love the stuff but can't replicate my grandmothers recipe, which she sadly took with her to the grave.

Mine is the one from 'River Cottage Everyday' by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. I can't vouch for its excellence, but it tastes good to me. Sometimes I use yoghurt if I can't get buttermilk.

LINK TO RECIPE

The preserved pepper brand I use is Peppadew, which you can get in most supermarkets.

It's pretty straightforward stuff to make to be honest. I think I just have some kind of Proustian thing going on with it.

I agree the with you on the camden market food it is excellent. Love the selling chant: "Wa u wan? I got vegtible spwing woll. You wan pwawn?"

Bought some, late Saturday morning. Scraped the last little bits from the jar Sunday teatime. Damn tasty!
