JAY RAYNER AND FARMERS MARKETS

June 11, 2014

I don’t know what to make of this story, as usual the Mail has a lot of innaccuracies in its reporting but I’m used to that.
What Jay is saying is that the large supermarkets arejust as good for foodstuffs at a much lower price that farmers markets and he is totally and absolutely bang on with that assessment.
I love Farmers Markets but anyone using them has to accept from the outset that they are horrendously expensive and there are no real benefits to be gained from shooping at them.
Unlike the Mail I should make it veryclear that I am referring strictly to Farmers Markets as opposed to general street or town markets.
As I’ve said in an earlier blog I get virtually allmy foodstuffs from one or other of the major supermarkets, the quality is good and the prices are right if you shop around.
I make no apology for telling you about a ready meal I enjoyed last weekend.
It was a Tesco Steak Diane, part of their finest range it cost me £6. Back in the 70’s when steak diane was all the rage I loved the dish and at least once a week had it at my local steak bar so I do know a good one when I taste one. Without hesitation I can report that the ready meal I had at the weekend was the best I have ever tased, the sauce was perfect and the steak itself was so tender I didn’t even need a knife. I have alrady ordered another one.
So, well done Jay I am glad to hear of someone who is honest about his food and doesn’t folow the usual food expert’s mantra of trying to blind ordinary people with science and expensive ingredients.
Well done and keep up the good work.
