We need a hotter grill!

Very nice, I wish our grill would get hotter, I think that would of made it even better. A bit more colour on the fish perhaps. That said everything was cooked nicely. The squid was quickly fried in butter /olive oil with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
‘Ivybridge Fish shop’ yet again providing stunning produce. The key to good squid is to buy fresh squid. Freezing toughens squid up. We have the most amazing squid on the south coast. Don’t buy frozen imported squid.
Garlic bread made with garlic butter and marjoram filling worked very well. Marjoram is so underrated.
Normandy came to Ivybridge today, more like Norman came to Ivybridge. It is unlikely a market in Normandy would be as crap as this one. The cheese was OK.
I have better UK cheese from ‘Totness good Food’ ‘Ivybridge Market’ or ‘Royal Williams Yard’. The best French cheese I have had outside of France is in Munich (‘Galeria Kaufhov’) and London (‘La Fromagerie’). Neals Yard is still the best cheese shop in the world. Waitrose has a good cheese counter, certainly better than the rival supermarkets.
