Local Blackberries = Local cheese

I'm not sure what food you could find in Merton though. There's some elderflowers nearby but not many. You can buy Wimbledon honey at the Wimbledon Common windmill or at the National Trust shop at Morden Hall Park. Mind you there's the blackberries. Loads of them.

The Balcony Food Zone

Regular readers will know that I like my food, and I'm keen on quality. I've baked my own bread for around two years now (and indeed, as I type, there's a malthouse loaf proving in the kitchen), and I like to eat good quality food.

Jellied Eels

Just had them for the first time after a work lunchtime visit to A Cooke's pie and mash shop on the Goldhawk Road. Makes you wonder how something which looks so disgusting, can actually be so wonderfully tasty...

Jumbucks. Just say NO

Published on 15 December 2005 in ,

Quite frankly, the Jumbuck's pie I ate this evening, was by far the blandest, most tasteless food I have ever, EVER eaten in my life. This wasn't bad tasting. This was just non-existant tasting. It apparently had meat in it. I know cos I put some in my mouth. But it just tasted of, well nothing. It was is my tastebuds had gone on a hundred mile hike, and wouldn't be back for another fortnight.
