My friend Katie took me to Broadway Market today, over in Hackney. It’s a bit old school with some Borough Market thrown in. It seems to have a good mix of bric a brac and very nice food. Even the shops in the street sold excellent fish, meat, wines, etc. It was a cold, grey day, 5 weeks before Christmas and it seemed to have a lovely winter buzz.

Their risotto was deliciously creamy, with a sprinkle of parmesan and rocket. It was almost perfect, but for some reason I fancied some walnuts in it – in a market full of food, perhaps I should have bought some!

Not content with risotto, we decided to walk over to A Little of What You Fancy, to see some friends…
