Breakfast /brunch Burrata salad. IOW sweet baby tomatoes, a fab perfectly ripe avocado surrounding a super fresh baby burrata from Tacco my new found Pugliese deli on Fulham Rd. Walkable too!!! Thank you Marco Fedele. Of course drizzled… no …. Poured masses of my last bottle of first run Tuscan olive oil over the fat white blob. Pepper and a little salt flakes. Nothing else.

The 2021 larder kitchen garden Kabocha. Seed was from Japan. Thank you Mika san. Poor weather meant only one made it through.

Noodle time again. This version is a chicken and pork bone 3 day tonkotsu style stock with left over chanterelles, “yin choy” amaranth greens, full hard boiled egg cos I don’t like runny yolk spoiling the amazing broth. Half portion of Ramen mixed through a tare of soya sauce, thick soya sauce, sesame oil and mirin. #ramen #noodles #noodlesoup #tonkotsu #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook #deliciousness #gfw
