Entertainment Quarter Famer’s Market

Second time there. the first was a while back if you check the post.

So we’re here to top up some supplies.

Portuguese chilli. Very delicious. They have varying heat. We chose the Hot one. This goes really nicely on burgers or just grilled chicken. We bought the larger bottle previously but it took us quite some time to finish it, so we decided that just a small bottle this time.

Parmesan cheese. we all love it freshly grated. yes. but i’m lazy sometimes. and the grated parmesan that the supermarket sells is hmm.

so when i saw this at a cheese stand, i grabbed it. $4 is a little pricey, but it’s grated and it’s good quality. So it’s worth it i guess. :)

I also bought a small wedge of Fontina, a nice melting cheese. This one i got is sharper in taste and very creamy. We had it over mashed potatoes.

It is also great just shaved over crackers, with black pepper. Great like that, or just pop it into the oven for a minute and the cheese melts nicely.

I LOVE butter. in case you didn’t already know. so i’ve been reading up a little on butter. and found that cultured butter, like the one above are made from sour cream instead of cream. therefore, the butter has a slightly sour taste. This is expensive butter. I found it at a cheese store. i think it would go great with sourdough bread. which unfortunately i don’t really like. not really keen on sour. but i will try again.

Shi Hui bought a small tin of chai tea. Instead of the usual powder ones, this one has real tea leaves and real spices in there. cardamom seeds and all. i don’t like chai, i can’t stand the smell of the spices. but i love curry. so i guess it’s just chai.

2 chocolate croissants.

2 brioche.

I’m ashamed to say that we forgot to eat them. so they’re hard and dry now, from being in the fridge. but i’m going to save them but making bread and butter pudding with all these pastries. :)

and of course. we are hungry. so we bought 2 gozleme. One vegetarian, one with minced meat.

Delicious with lemon squeezed over it. Fresh and piping hot. Only me and hui went so we nearly couldn’t finish it all. Hui left one slice of her minced meat and i managed to finish all of my vegetarian. :) yum yum. feel like eating that now.

Well.. that’s about all our adventures from the EQ farmer’s market.

Till next time!
