One of the great things about festivals are the various food stalls with good variety of cuisine.
For the first time, I’ve tried Poutine. Poutine is a dish originating in Quebec, Canada, made with french fries, topped with a light brown gravy-like sauce and cheese curds.
The folks from The Poutinerie (check them our on twitter @ThePoutinerie ) were providing this lovely dish at the festival, and I must say they were one of the few stalls that caught my eye.
They serve two types of Poutine, the original for £5.00 which is chips, cheesecurd and gravy. And the other one that I ordered for £7.00 – Roast chicken and bacon Poutine, chips, cheesecurd, chicken, bacon and gravy… I must say that this really hit the spot for me.. I can imagine many variations of this dish.. Can’t wait to experiment in a few months!
Right, unfortunately I am going to do my atkins/ketogenic diet and cut off sugars and carbs.. I have put on a bit of weight the past few months.. So more potatoes or homemade pasta for me!
Wish me luck guys!!
One of my favorite restaurants to go to in London is the Wright Brothers.. I have been to the one in Canarby Street in Soho too many times… Let’s say we spend about £100pp each time we go there.
Wright Brothers are known for their seafood.. fresh seafood from the southwest coast of England.
Testeiras, my housemate Jenny and I decided to go explore Borough Market. It’s like my own personal heaven.. Al the fresh vegetable, cheeses, cured meats, fresh bread and food stalls!
This is definitely a place I would recommend you to go if you ever decide to visit London…I am pretty sure I have eaten my weight in food… 8 oysters, half of a duck confit sandwich, a portion of salt and pepper squid, seafood platter to share for 3 people and 3 bottles of prosecco!
I have got a few cheeses with me that I’ll use for some recipes.. I’ve got pecorino sardo, pecorino and truffle, smoked ricotta. I have got both black and white truffle oil.
I would buy the whole borough market if I could!
