The Ginger Pig comes to Clapham

At last we have a butcher’s on Abbeville Road.  And not just any old butcher’s – The Ginger Pig is a great one! Most Clapham foodies will already know them from their Borough Market shop, selling amazing sausages so it’s going to be a real pleasure having a local branch.

I’ve used tamarind paste before, but have never seen it fresh, so when I saw this box in Sainsburys today in the Fresh Fruit aisle I bought it on spec.
