Food Glorious Food!

Matron took another trip to London's Borough Market today. Just within a few yards of London Bridge and right underneath Southwark Cathedral. If you ever get the chance to come (especially around lunch time) then come to this foodie heaven.
Freshly caught
This Cornish Yarg cheese is wrapped in stinging nettle leaves!
If you think Kangaroo burgers sounds unusual...
Why don't you try Zebra burgers instead!
Or how about a loaf of bread baked in a flowerpot!
I'm not sure what to say about this one except... Ooooh Matron!

I just love Borough Market - we always come home from there laden with iberico ham from Brindisa and cheeses. For a vegetarian, I have an unhealthy fascination with the fish stalls...

Yarg fact - true and funny! a farmer called Gary invented it, with his milk not making any money, couldn't thing of a name so called it ~Gary, backwards, yarg!

Stacy - I am just so excited about your last comment about Venice. I have booked a short break to Venice in a few weeks' time. I deliberately booked a hotel near that Rialto market.

Beef curtains. lol. Some sort of beef sausage? Doesn't look quite right to be jerky. :)

Look forward to hearing about your trip to Venice!

Kangaroo burgers? Zebra burgers? Would like to try them out someday if I have the chance... perhaps when I go to Perth in two weeks' time? :)
