To market, to market …
February 4, 2011 in Uncategorized
Last night I dragged some friends along to the Night Market @ The Roastery … and what a cool time we had on a hot summer’s night in Durbs!
I was sporting my enormous shopping bag (from WholeFoods in NY!) with good intentions of filling it to the brim with delicious food treats.
Well, there were plenty of foodie treats … but I couldn’t refrain from eating them there and then. The highlight of the evening for me was the “Austrian Spring Cake” … ok, clearly that’s the English name … and I’ve googled and googled people and I can’t find anything that resembles the delicious confection that we devoured! The spirals of pastry are dipped in either a vanilla sugar, a cinnamon sugar or a pecan nut sugar. We had one of each and they were all equally amazing!!!
There were oysters, curries, quiche, pastries, coffee, chocolates, olives, meats … the list goes on.
We ended off our feasting with a beautiful frothy cappucino from Colombo. It was super-smooth and a really beautiful coffee! Sadly my extra-large shopping bag was rather empty on the way home. I only had a smokey piece of Chorizo and some Pecorino cheese to show for the evening.
To market to market to buy a plum bun,
Home again home again
market is done!
