This Saturday I went to Ramsgate foodies market with the kids and we came back with lots of bags… as usual! On this photo I show you a little bit of what we bought only because it couldn’t fit everything in the picture :) Or I should buy a wider angle lens…
This market is very nice, it has a large choice of fruits & veggies, the lovely stall of The Herb Store about which I wrote an article HERE, a real butcher, a German baker, a smoked fish stall, a fishmonger, different cheese stores, a few spices stalls and lovely food to eat on the spot including a delightful Phở and so much more.
This is what I bought this time:
(top to bottom, left to right)
– line 1: Excellent quality, nutty Swiss raclette cheese; the fantastic La Tur fromaggio (article to be published) a mix of cream and a slightly chalky heart made with cow, sheep and goat milk; the indispensable Pepe Saya butter; a very authentic imported French handmade rillettes with duck fat.
– line 2: Edmond Fallot French gherkins; pecan nuts.
– line 3: Vacherin Fribourgeois of a rare quality, it smell like a corpse ;) but tastes like heaven; duck terrine with apple (Terrine de canard aux pommes) which tastes delicious with home-made bread just out of the oven, the taste of apple isn’t very strong but the overhaul flavour is great and authentic; my new addiction: Redella (you can read my article on this marvel HERE).
– line 4: Saucisse sèche or French dry sausage which tastes very good but is too soft in the texture to my taste. I like saucissons and saucisses sèches very firm and dry. I will buy their saucisson next time; mini apples. They looked tiny, very wild and they taste bloody good. They’re the real thing…
All the cold meat products come from the French sausage stall. The apples from the “bulk cheap fruit place” at the back. The cheeses from the guy usually near the crêpe people :)
I went to The Herb Store (I can’t help it) and bought a Shiso plant which I am ecstatic about. I have been looking for one forever. I also bought a male and a female carob trees (close to cacao). I was glad to find some poultry livers at the Butcher.
That’s it for this week-end!
