London

I did not post for a few days as I was enjoying beautiful London. I just LOVE that place!




And whenever I am in London I just MUST visit Borough Market.

Borough Market is London’s oldest food market. It was established on the south bank of the Thames when the Romans built the first London Bridge. It has occupied its present site for 250 years.
Borough has a long and distinguished history as a wholesale fruit and vegetable market - wholesale trade takes place every night except Saturday from 2am – 8am.


Borough Market has over the past few months won three major awards:
The Evening Standard London's Best Shopping Experience Award
The Evening Standard London's Best Market Award
The NABMA (National Association of British Market Authorities) Best Speciality Market 2008 Award


These are my MUST BUY's :



  • Orkney Rose sell the most wonderful Clover and heather honey. Recently they have added hand blended and hand rolled whisky truffles which are flavoured with nothing but pure malt whisky – no whisky flavourings in site! Made with Highland Park Whisky from one of Orkney’s award winning distilleries they make the perfect christmas treat.

  • England Preserves make jams that are bright and beautiful in colour, rich in texture and full of distinct fruit flavour. You can order online at I promise you that this is THE BEST jam you will have ever tasted.

  • As I run my own tea room I always pay a visit to Ceylon 1 and East Teas.. Ceylon1 have a selection of high grown single estate black and green teas. East Teas is a London–based company dedicated to specialising in importing and distributing specialist, fine-quality loose-leaf teas and tea utensils from east Asia for seven years. east teas sources directly from teamakers, growers and suppliers in the country of origin.

  • The last place on my way home is of course Neil's Yard Dairy.
