Although I had to stop off at the local farmer's market first (because the mushroom season is in full swing... who could resist these? I bought some yellow chanterelles to add to a chicken caserole and some tasty field mushrooms).
We were on our way to the Thames River Festival, lured by the idea that Southwark Bridge had been made into the longest outdoor dining area. Although not a lot of crafting appears to be going on in this household, food remains - as you can see - a priority!
Not only were there tables on either side, with a delightful table cloth printed for the ocassion...
there were also stalls with information on composting, bees, cocoa beans, and how to milk cows... there was even a cow! And, of course, food stalls
One big surprise was the stall selling London wine - that is right! Urban Wine Company members grow vines within London and make their own rose... it was so surprisingly tasty, I simply had to have a couple of glasses to support 'localism' (any excuse!).
