Do you like Saturdays?
What does it for you? A coffee / newspaper combo...James Martin on Saturday Kitchen...sleep until 12.30pm???
After the Monday-Friday tug of war with alarm clocks and time keeping, one is finally allowed to act like a lady of leisure and get some good loitering in before the weekend is out. I mostly improvise, but a recurring theme in the little play of my perfect day, is most definitely a run (as you can see by the attire) and if I can try and make it to the Duke of York Square market, it is the rainbow roti wrap from the Rainforest Creations stand.

This is SERIOUSLY good. I've tried a few things (ok...a lot of things) at the market...the pie, the gnocchi, the burger, the chorizo roll, the thai curry, the (fizzy) aubergine-not so good. I've cut at cheese. I've had a cookie. I've circulated and circulated until the stall workers look close to asking me to leave, but after a long long time, I can't shake this one off...I daren't try anything new. It pretty much covers everything I am looking for.
|Box or roti?|
|Perfection being created|
The cornmeal, lentil and wholegrain flour wrap seems to have a texture, after warming, somewhere in between a wholemeal pitta and a pancake and works as the most wonderfully comforting duvet sealer to a vibrant, tasty insulation. I've had the rainbox 'box' and after many tastings, it doesn't quite do it for me like the wrap. If I'm hungover, I crave the wrap. If I'm just hungry, I want the wrap. If I want to be healthy, I want the wrap. Whatever mood I'm in, I want the wrap. It's filling. It's delicious. It's colourful. Think tropical coleslaw, wild rice, lentils, chickpeas, avocado. WAIT. Don't get put off. Even the skeptics like it. Believe me. I've imposed it on most people.

'have you tried it?' 'oooh, you can tell that the raspberries have obviously been swirled in just at the last moment' 'I don't usually like fruit and chocolate together' 'the texture is amazing' 'this is the best brownie I've ever had' 'much better than that Flour Power City one'

Now go and find a good spot -I call shot gun outside The Saatchi Gallery. Sit. People watch. Enjoy.
