been a cold, grey, mizzley kind of day. In fact, the last few days have been
cold, grey and mizzley. But today is Halloween and as I wander down the
Gloucester Road, following my stomach, there are cheerful carved pumpkins,
sugar skulls and papel picados decorating many of the shop windows. My
favourite is the Frida pumpkin complete with elderberry crown, on the counter
of Katie and Kim's Kitchen. Their converted horse box has found a permanent
spot outside the Motorcycle Show Room in Stokes Croft, from where they make and
serve some pretty tasty grub.
for lunch today, I enjoyed one of their immense bacon sandwiches. Home cured
fried bacon, spinach, basil oil, aoili and caramelised onion relish, slapped
between thick slices of homemade bread. All washed down with a cup of hot
coffee. Just delicious.
And since I have eyes bigger than my belly, I made off with
a slice of their pumpkin pie too. Butter-rich flaky pastry, loaded with spicy
pumpkin goo and a glug of cream for good measure. Definitely a treat.
