I thought it might be nice to post some photos of all of the bounty of October at the Borough Market. Every time I enter the market, I am overwhelmed by the sights, smells, and lovely ideas of what I might make with all that is available.
Figs! Beautiful figs. I have been meaning to recreate a dish of bacon wrapped figs I had with some good friends at Abigail in Hermosa Beach (although it is no longer on their exquisite menu). If ever in Hermosa Beach, I highly recommend Abigaile. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great, and the service was impeccable.
….and Cheese! Glorious Cheese! Huge wheels of aged Comte. I purchased a small wedge, some ‘Big Jesus’ sausage, and 1/4 a loaf of French countryside bread. We brought our good home, paired the lovely flavors of fresh, quality ingredients with a deep Cabernet. Perfect.
