St Margarets, a small village between Richmond and Twickenham, is a foodie's dream come true. In most of England the concept of having a local butcher, baker and candlestick maker went out of fashion in 1850. St Margarets may not have the candlestick maker but it does have a wonderful butcher's (Armstrong's), a well stocked green grocer's (Streets) a few cafes (Zorans, L'amadine and Sunshine and Ravioli) and even a cheese shop and a local health food store.
Because I love all the local stores of St Margarets I have dedicated this blog to recipes that can be made predominately with foods sold at my local shops (plus a few staples). All of my recipes are fairly simple to make and most are good for leftovers as well.
