We ate so much in Berlin. So much. It was glorious, a gastronomical festival. We had ice cream every day (no photos, too busy eating it) and literally satisfied every hungry whim we had. Amazing.

I made some Malteser cupcakes last week. They were quite something. It’s pretty cool that standard cupcake mix can be so enhanced simply by adding Maltesers. I added whole ones to the cake batter and crushed ones to the buttercream frosting. I made enough to fill a couple of cake tins and they disappeared pretty quickly so I’m assuming I wasn’t the only one who liked them.



Real Food Market


(Can you tell I really, really miss bread?)

The Real Food Market is another example of making fresh, local produce accessible in the city. We’ve already taken a look at Chiswick Farmer’s Market, but the Real Food Market is right at the heart of London, on the South Bank. Located just behind the Royal Festival Hall, there is a wide range of products on sale to suit most tastes. We tried brownies and churros, but the savoury offerings looked (and smelled) amazing too. Check it out on the first weekend of every month.
