The great thing about being a foodie is other foodies. We’re a generous bunch but perhaps that’s because the intrinsic pleasure of food lies in sharing it. Fellow foodie Maria, who blogs under the name Organically Cooked, was visiting London last week and bought me a beautiful treasure trove of foodstuffs from her greek island home of Hania in return for a small favour I did for her. I did tell she didn’t have to but I’m glad she did!
Here are photographs and descriptions of most of the items, there were for example, some lemons picked from the village trees but they didn’t make it into the photos. They somehow made their way into a couple of gin and tonics instead. They were sweet and fresh – no comparison to a supermarket lemon!
