More Borough Market – The Cheesy Bits

When we weren’t stuffing ourselves with chocolate truffles, wild boar sausages, Turkish delight or smelling truffles at stalls with inviting ‘Smell This’ signs, we were sampling a whole lot of cheese.

Special Mention :

The couple‘s obsession with estimating the BMI of positively obese pigeons that take strolls around Regents Park. (no, they don’t even pretend to fly).

Oh, the obligatory Tamizh reference. Free association – Pigeons -> Birds -> Kaadai 65, Pigeon Roast -> Ponnuswamy (quintessential Chettinad goodness).

Also, glad to know you enjoyed the lokum but any talk of it always makes me point out the place where you get just the best turkish delight in the world – here.
So no doubt of anyone impersonating me on this comment, right? :P

Hiya. Glad you liked the post. After a bit of asking around (my boss if French), I have since discovered that the cheese is Crottin de Chavignol, a hard goat’s cheese from the Sancerre region. Lovely!
