|This amazing sight is just outside Vinopolis. Very appropriately, it was chucking it down when I took this photo|
Celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo was on hand to talk us through he new products and I took loads of photos - but the guy has ants in his pants and didn't stand still. At all. So I've had to delete most of them as they were just a blur (which the day could well have been for me had I given in to the Prosecco that was being liberally handed out. (Well, yes, I did have a couple of glasses, but that's all honest.)
Luckily the fridge freezers were a bit more accommodating when it came to photographs.
|I like the way the inside is designed, with really deep salad drawers and dedicated bottle space. I don't know if |
you can see, but there's another narrower drawer above the bottom shelf that still leaves space on the shelf itself
|The freezer section has a really deep drawer - handy or what?|
|See what I mean, he can't stand still...|
On the way back to the tube I popped in to Borough Market, which I've read so much about. These photos give you a flavour of the market - it was full of lovely, stinky cheeses, fruit and veg, meat, wines and perhaps most importantly, cakes. It was packed with people and there was a happy atmosphere, but overall, I found it a bit contrived. That's not to say it doesn't serve its purpose, I'm sure it does, and there should definitely be more food markets out there so we have a choice about where to shop. It seemed to me more like a tourist attraction than an actual market though. I'm not sure it that makes sense, but I couldn't afford to shop there regularly as it's too expensive, which defeats the idea of markets surely.
