MALTBY STREET MARKET

12 Nov

DEAR BLOG,

TUCKED AWAY ROUND A LITTLE CORNER FROM TOWER BRIDGE, IS THE MARKET-IN-THE-ARCHES THAT GOES BY THE NAME OF MALTBY STREET. ALTHOUGH THE GUARANTEE OF TRENDBAIT IS SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER THAN YOUR USUAL EAST END LURES, THERE IS ENOUGH CHARM GOING ON HERE TO ENSURE THAT AT LEAST ONE MORE THAN KILLABLE CARDIGAN CLAD-EE WILL WANDER PAST THE GIN BAR IN THE BRIEF HOURS OF ITS OPENING. SATURDAY MORNINGS, KIDS, BETWEEN 10 AND 2.

YOU’RE WELCOME,

KATHRON

ROMANCZE

22 Oct

DEAR BLOG,

LAST MONTH KATHRON HAD A ROMANTIC DATE AT THE COMPLETELY DELICIOUS BOROCCA OFF WHITE CROSS STREET (WHICH ITSELF IS A TREAT FOR THE TONSILS, BUT THAT’S ANOTHER STORY FOR ANOTHER TIME). FANCY A FRESH BOWL OF PASTA AND THE PERFECT AMBIANCE FOR YOUR EVENING BRUNCH MEAL, ALL AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE? LOOK NO FURTHER THAN BOROCCA. THEY MIGHT EVEN GIVE YOU A FREE LIMONCELLO FOR DIGESTION.

MUCH YUMNESS,

KATHRON

Oh and another thing I like…

 … KILLING.

SOUFFLE

2 Oct

BLOG OMG,

WE’VE STUMBLED ON A GREAT ONE THIS TIME: SALMON AND GOATS CHEESE TART, MIXED WITH SPECIAL EGG MIXTURE TIMESZ THAT MAKES IT SOUFFLE ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP OF THE OVEN. SOMETHING TO DO WITH MIXING YOLKS WITH BUTTER, THEN FOLDING IN WHISKED EGG WHITES. YUM.

LOTS OF LOVE AND FINGER LICKIN’

SALMON SCOTCH EGGZ

29 Aug

HEY BLOG!

KATHRON BRINGS YOU A PARTICULARLY SPECIAL POST THIS FINE, DRIZZLY DAY. OH YES. FOR TODAY, KATHRON SPEAKS OF SOMETHING SHE MADE WITH HER OWN. BARE. HANDS.

SALMON SCOTCH EGGS. IT’S A WONDER ‘THE SHOPS’ STOCK ANYTHING ELSE. THEY’RE JUST, LIKE, SOOO DELICIOUS.

WHAT YOU DO IS, YOU MASH UP SOME SALMON FILLETS AND SOME SMOKED SALMON, SEASON WITH LIME AND DILL, BOIL SOME EGGS, PEEL THE EGGS, COVER YOUR EGGS WITH THE SALMONY PASTE YOU NOW FIND BETWEEN YOUR FINGERS, DIP THE LOT IN FLOUR THEN EGG YOLK MIX THEN BREADCRUMBS, AND DEEP FRY LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW. MAYBE MAKE SOME MAYO FOR DIPPING? LIKE, CAPER MAYO? OR LEMON MAYO?

ANYWAY YEAH, IT’S DELICIOUS, AND YOU CAN SAVE SOME COLD TO SNACK ON WHILE CRUISING FOR THOSE TASTY TRENDIES.

IS ALL.

LOVE,

KATHRON

DEAR BLOG,

SOMETIMES JUST A DELICIOUS VAT OF COFFEE WILL SUFFICE TO APPEASE YOUR BRUNCH O’CLOCK HIPSTER KILL TIME URGES. VIETNAMESE COFFEE IS SIMPLY A DELICIOUS WAY OF DOING SO. DON’T DRINK ON A FULLY EMPTY STOMACH THOUGH AS YOU MAY FEEL A LITTLE POORLY.

LOVE,

KATHRON

BRUNCHNEY WICK

13 Jun

DEAR BLOG,

IT WAS A BUSY WEEKEND OF BRUNCHING- WHY, KATHRON PARTOOK IN NO LESS THAN TWO BRUNCHES IN JUST ONE DAY. SOME UNACCUSTOMED BRUNCH PARTAKERS MAY QUESTION THE BRUNCHNESS OF EITHER THE FIRST OR INDEED THE SECOND OF THE BRUNCHES HOWEVER, THEY ARE CLEARLY NOT ACQUAINTED WITH THE FINE ART OF RECOGNISING A BRUNCH WHEN THEY SEE ONE (OR IN THIS CASE, HEAR ABOUT ONE).

ANYWAY, KATHRON ISN’T HERE TO TELL YOU ABOUT EITHER OF THOSE.

KATHRON IS HERE TO TELL YOU THE TALE OF ANOTHER BRUNCH.

FOLLOW THE OVERGROUND LINE OF EAST LONDON, CONTOUR THE OLYMPIC STADIUM, AND YOU GET TO THE HIPSTER-STREWN LOCALE OF HACKNEY WICK. HACKNEY WICK- A DREAM FOR THE SOLITUDE-SEEKING ANDROID- IS AN EMPTY SHELL OF A NEIGHBOURHOOD. CONSISTING SOLELY OF FACTORY-CUM-RAVE VENUES, STADIUM VIEWS AND CANAL ALLUSIONS, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW WHETHER A HUNGRY ANDROID IS COMPLETELY ALONE IN THIS WASTELAND OR IN FACT SURROUNDED BY SECRET MEETING ROOMS FULL OF ZOMBIETRONS PLOTTING HER DEMISE. ONLY THE OCCASIONAL CARDIGAN-CLAD HUMANOID CAN DIVERT ATTENTION FROM THE ADMIRATION OF SUCH A BIZARRELY SECLUDED PLACE.

TURN A CORNER HOWEVER, AND YOU WILL COME ACROSS THE LOVELY CORNER CAFE- A CAFE-ON-A-CANAL WHICH SERVES MOSTLY DELICIOUS BUT ALSO CONFUSING DISHES (AVOID THE SPICY SCRAMBLE. UNLESS YOU LIKE CURRY WITH YOUR BRUNCH). TAKE A SEAT, GET YOURSELF SOME ORGANIC FRUIT JUICE, AND ENJOY THE SILENT SWAY OF THE CANAL AS YOU LAP UP THE PAPER’S SUPPLEMENTS.

SEE YOU ANON,

A FULLY-BRUNCHED KATHRON
