Perhaps it’s just us, but other peoples fridges and pantries always seem so much more exotic and romantic than ours Chez Greysquirrell……..
……. and Darrell, having been given free reign in Hugh’s Notting Hill kitchen has found that it is particularly wonderfully exotically and romantically stocked to the point of great envy!
Just saying “fraise des bois” is romantic enough …… without even actually having it in your cupboard ……
……. and, of which Darrell informs me, Hugh is extremely fond of pouring onto his
halogen gas Häagen-Dazs, when he gives in to indulgency.
As for pomegranate syrup ………….. which even says on the bottle that it’s exotic and for “inspired dining” …….. we just cannot compete!
Though we very much pride ourselves on embracing all things novel of a comestible type nature, Darrell tells me that by Hugh’s standards we are just
filopines Philippines philistines!I can also feel it in my water already, that upon Darrell’s return our next Tesco online order will contain said “unusual” ……. however, in the meantime, while he is away, (but texting), I am the one who is having to explain to Nigel that you can’t actually milk an almond!!!!
