Cockles! I finally tired my first cockles today at lunch and absolutely enjoyed them.
We trained up from London this morning and got the grand tour of Keith & Michelle's new house. It is absolutely beautiful. Their kitchen in this house is to be seen to be believed. It is a cook's dream. They live right outside of Colchester on a little 10 square mile island called Mersea. It is pronouced Mer-Ze...not mercy or mersee like I have pronounced it every single time I say it. The island is accessible from a small bridge which during a high - high tide once every four weeks or so, is unaccessible for approximately four hours.
