We stood beneath those Dickensian emerald arches and smiled. The spicy smell of paella wafted through the air. Close eyes inhale. Venison sausages with an acidic dijon kick. Close eyes inhale.  The sweet aroma of melted English cheddar toasties and heady rich truffle. And my favourite, that irresistible powdery vanilla of freshly made fudge.

We had travelled to Borough Market in search of sustenance. Dating back to the 13th century the market is London’s oldest and home to countless stalls of glorious gourmet goodies, from artisan cheeses to stacks of organic brownies and cakes. Mercifully it was a Thursday, meaning no tourists, sandals or fanny-packs. Some light drizzle; but that only added to pleasure of biting into a steaming hunk..of meat.

We meandered around the stalls and were assailed by samples food at every one. Plump glossy morsels of fresh eggy pasta stuffed with veal. Gooey chocolate brownies. Crumbly pear tartlets. Steaming pieces of venison. I felt like Henry’s seventh wife at a Tudor feast. 
Ultimately I settled for a double sausage burger with red onion marmalade encased in a warm English muffin. Terrific choice. Produced by Boston Sausage who specialise in fine Lincolnshire sausages, the burger was a thing of beauty and at £6 you’ll have enough moola left over for the truffle toastie melts and salted caramel fudge.
