Kalamata Olive Paste?

The title says it all, really. Where can I find some? Sunita used to make some, but our local health food store doesn't stock it any more. I can get it at Broadway Market, but it only keeps for a little while. I want something that will keep in the fridge for a while.

(I guess I could make it myself, but I hate hate hate pitting things.)

Are you in Hackney then, nqc? Doesn't the big Tesco's on Mare St have any?

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 18:27:46

I'm in Mile End. Haven't tried that Tesco's. I have tried Ocado. Hmm, maybe I should try the big Sainsbury's, or the Waitrose at Canary Wharf?

snafu Thu 19-May-05 18:33:17

Oooh, yes, forgot about Waitrose. Much more likely, I reckon. There's Fresh & Wild in Old St too (bit of a trek just for that though) Or what about the deli next to Frocks in Viccy Park?

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 19:17:37

Oh, I like the sound of Fresh & Wild, it's near the Old St Roundabout, isn't it?

If by the deli next to Frocks, you mean, the Frocks deli, it's gone.

You'd think Eau a la Bouche (in Broadway Market) would have some, I should ask them if they can get me some. The stuff I can get in Broadway Market is from one of the stalls, and it comes from a big bucket.

Tesco make their own in the Finest range, alsorts of diffent variations too.

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 19:39:57

Ah, NDP, we do have a Tesco's not that far away. Presumably it's the sort of thing that a bigger Tescos would do, more than a smaller one ...

snafu Thu 19-May-05 19:41:41

Ulp. When did Frocks's deli go??

hoxtonchick Thu 19-May-05 19:55:32

tesco's on mare st is full of nutters....

NomDePlume Thu 19-May-05 19:57:41

I would think so, NQC, my local Tesco is pretty generously proportioned

NomDePlume Thu 19-May-05 20:04:53

They sell the Finest Tapenade on Teasco online

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 20:37:18

snafu, Frock's deli went ages ago - even before the Frock's fire. I don't think it was making money. I think Eau a la Bouche has taken a lot of their market, anyway, and are doing it much better.

There's a lovely new Vietnamese place just off the big roundabout there, by the way, just north east of Frocks. Really nice food, very reasonable prices.

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 20:38:27

hoxtonchick, do you mean nutters? or mumsnetters? (or is there a difference?)

NDP, I've not tried Tescos online, it's probably not worth it for just olive paste. I think I looked at them before deciding on Ocado, but they didn't have enough organic meat.

hoxtonchick Thu 19-May-05 20:39:42

i mean proper bona fide nutters nqc! broadway market on the other hand is very classy & 5 minutes walk from our house. hooray.

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 20:40:56

Broadway Market is a long walk from ours, or a short bike ride, but I love it there. I know the owner of Eau a la Bouche, and the bread they have ... oooh. Also, the tomato stand, the knitting shop, it's such a nice little urban oasis.

hoxtonchick Thu 19-May-05 20:42:47

our favourites are the 3 seed bread, the giant baked beans & as much cake as ds & i can sneak past dp .

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 20:44:25

Oh, and the Chicken B'Stilla, the sausisson sec, the proper pate, the French yoghurt. Hmm, I think we're hitting Broadway Market this Saturday again.

The Market itself is such a nice little improvement - I did antenatal yoga at the new agey place, and I remember that street as always being more than a bit dead, other than Little Georgia.

hoxtonchick Thu 19-May-05 20:45:53

i so agree. we've been here 3.5 years & the change in that time is amazing. i like the gastro-pub near the park, but not too keen on the new owners of little georgia. have you been to armadillo? fabulous.

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 21:02:02

I've been to armadillo once, it was good. I liked ikubo or whatever it was called, in the old location, haven't been that much since it moved. There are a couple of new restaurants up there that I haven't been to at all, I think.

hoxtonchick Thu 19-May-05 21:04:30

yes ikubo was much better when it was the old cafe, i spent much of ds' pregnancy in there eating chocolate cake.

snafu Thu 19-May-05 21:21:41

I went to the new pub on the corner of BM a few weeks ago when visiting my bro in his fabulous new bachelor pad and it was 'lovely'. I love it round there, miss it terribly.

I did antenatal yoga at Holistic Health, NQC - is that the place you mean?

snafu Thu 19-May-05 21:22:18

Oh! Armadillo - best steak I have ever eaten.

hoxtonchick Thu 19-May-05 22:01:31

sounds like we need to have a broadway market meet up!

NotQuiteCockney Thu 19-May-05 22:24:03

Snafu, that is where I mean. Dinosaur did antenatal yoga there too - Julie Sumner? I did postnatal yoga there, as well.

A Broadway Market meet would be great. Aren't there a fair number of Hackney mumsnetters? (dinosaur and jj are both in Hackney)
