Thanks to the Herb and Spice Shop on Bank Street, I have been able to check off the longest serving item on my running to-do list. Many months ago in Oxford, Antonia introduced me to a sweet soy sauce called Ketjap Manis. I have since sought it in countless stores in several countries, though unsuccessfully until tonight.
I got lots of other good ethical stuff, also: hot curry paste, something called ‘kefir,’ organic salsa and feta cheese, tofu, nice looking bagels, veggie pate, some interesting snacks, and a big bag of oats.
Now, all I need is some St. Peter’s Organic Ale.
