Pelham sleeps soundly after a good run, snuggled in his new/old woollen blanket.  The stove is ticking and I hear my own footsteps on the boards.  A pear, date and walnut chutney is pending.  This is a thick, rich Autumn chutney, using pears from my dear friend Mrs Damazer's garden.  We celebrated passover with her in the Spring, so making a chutney which is especially good with pork seems a bit disingenuous.  Perhaps she will forgive me if I put her name on the label.

I fell in love with Paul Bommer's work when I lived in London.  My children went to school on Brick Lane for several years and I spent many (many) a pleasant afternoon mooching around Spittalfields.  I discovered Paul's work in the wonderful and inimitable Town House, on Fournier Street.  It is marvellous to be able to stock his work in my own shop at last - and super to be able to commission my first class, local framer, Black Cab Studio in Deeping St James, to do the honours.  :)
