I live in Saffron Walden in Essex which is a small market town. Walden no longer grows saffron, but to replace it there is an exceptional twice a week food and fish market. Surprisingly, given the proximity of Cambridge, the Walden market is much more successful.
Jamie Oliver' dad's restaurant is nearby, but they have lost their their longtime Head Chef. He weathered the virus storms and is now the owner of a highly innovative food shop. He goes to the London markets each day, takes esoteric orders from his increasing customer base.
That is the good news. It is a pity about the rest.

Hi

We visited SW a bit when living in NE London. Lovely place.

Welcome to CookingBites. What food do you like to cook/eat?

Welcome from Ohio, USA! I have been a member since May and I really, really enjoy interacting with the people who contribute to this forum. I haven't met one snarky person yet, though the Internet is generally full of mean-spirited trolls. Not here!
