Absolutely delicious pita bread in Mercado Roma

Further to the introduction to my recent adventures in Mercado Roma, let's get down to brass tacks and talk about the delicious felafel at Arbanus. Having been a vegan for four years (thankfully no longer), Enrique is enamoured with food from the middle east.  Being a healthy vegan in Mexico is almost impossible.  It's a […]

Looking for good bread at Mercado Roma in Mexico City

The other day we went to check out Mercado Roma - a groovy new (ish - we were never really that trendy) food concept place in Col Roma Norte in Mexico City.  Enrique was delighted to see that the building is an old music venue where he used to go to watch his friend's dad's […]

Dear Mr Godin You wrote a book called Purple Cow which is great and which says among other things if you want to have a remarkable company you have to have a great product that people want to buy and recommend and so the greatness of your product spreads by word of mouth. I know […]

The Great British Bake Off starts today!

The Great British Bake Off starts today!

Sorry, missed the "one day to go to the Great British Bake Off" post as nothing much was happening with the 1857 sourdough.  It sat around all day - a pre-dough fermenting quietly away developing flavour and becoming easier and easier to digest.
