Foodie alert: Sardos Delicatessen and The Beer Bakery

It seems impossible to spend a weekend in London without bingeing on carbs. Here are my latest weekend findings from Shoreditch.

The Beer Bakery

Tom and Henry Herbert the Fabulous Baker Brothers and AB InBev opened a pop-up Beer Bakery on Hackney Road. You only have a few hours left to try their carb and alcohol heavy goodness, so you better run. The brothers used beers such as Stella Artois, Budweiser, Leffe, Becks Vier, Hoegaarden and Corona to make beer-flavoured bread with hop glazes and malted wheat crusts.

Pop in for an incredibly cheap tasting of bread and beer: £5.50 for bread with their special butters and a beer. I went for a Stella and their apple, walnut, barley and malted wheat seeded loaf, together with their festive orange and coriander all butter brioche. Both were perfect to try toasted with a few spreads of spiced honey butter.

Due to my low resistance to alcohol, I left tipsy at 3.30 pm, but it’s all worth it.

Sardos Delicatessen

Nothing brightens up your day like finding your home region’s treats in a pop up courtyard near you. The guys from Sardos Delicatessen produce real Sardinian meat, jam. sea urchins paste, bottarga, cheese and much more and deliver it to London’s best restaurants, as well as to Sardinians looking to organise a dinner like the one you have a casa.

The lovely founder, Luca, allowed me to test their typical Sardinian cheeses, meat and home-baked Pane Carasau, a crispy snack typical of the region that goes perfectly with both meat and cheese.

I left with some Pecorino, our typical sheep cheese that’s even sold on the beach, and a lot of love for my home country.
