one of my favourite delis, melrose and morgan makes life easy – especially on those days when you feel completely rushed off your feet – its pricey, but good quality and worth it. there is a daily changing lunch choice, salad, homemade sausage rolls, soups, plus a great choice of home made cakes. its not only a kitchen providing a range of seasonal foods, hand prepared with premium ingredients but they also offer a selection of everyday kitchen essentials sourced from the finest suppliers and producers – a lot of their products are from the famed bermondsey market. bermondsey is a real tasting experience and a fun thing to do on a saturday morning.
in central london, i love lina stores in brewer street my favourite produce are the handmade jams and honeys! for a lovely gift, pick a selection – olive oil, crackers, marmalade – put in a box and wrap with a ribbon. who wouldnt prefer this to another pair of socks? i also like paul rothe & sons, which is more old school practical with rows of jams and pickles.
pears image is one of my favourite cards.
