SHOP LOCAL!

Hopefully you’ve just clicked on and watched the lovely cartoon above and it’s struck a chord? Mymonkfish has long been a supporter of all things ‘local’ and I think this film comes up with new ideas for how people can do that.

Mymonkfish is as guilty as the rest of us when it comes to supermarket shopping but recently here at Monkfish Castle we have been trying really hard to shop more locally. One or our top fave foodie destinations is ‘Earthy Foods‘ (might have mentioned that before)….yes, you’ll find it more expensive than ‘Tesco’s’ but blimey, what top quality produce we’ve been buying. And the taste!! Our veg shop the other day included the most delicious tomatoes courtesy of Phantassie Organic and the most delicious steak that we’ve ever tasted (cooked to perfection by Ms. monkfish I hasten to add).  Shout out to Hugh Grierson’s organic butchery based at Earthy Foods in Edinburgh.

Mymonkfish is very passionate about this subject, more and more we want to know where our food is coming from. At the same time we don’t want to preach to the converted…….as monkfish fans you’ll know that ‘artisan’, ‘organic’ and ‘local’ are our values and we are very passionate about them. The more mymonkfish evolves on this whirlwind culinary adventure the more important these values are becoming. Let’s keep our farmers in business and try to buy ‘local’ whenever possible.

Right, soapbox away, time for dinner! Mr Predictable, get those chicken kiev’s in 😉 (I know you’ve all got enough intelligence to know I’m joking….he is partial to the odd Frey Bentos though, yikes, must put a stop to that….)
