I was so excited on Sunday that I had found a recipe for sugar-free pumpkin bread on one of my favorite cooking blogs. I had all of the ingredients except for the pumpkin purée. I tried every single store in Muswell Hill, but no one had pumpkin. Some people even looked at me funny when I asked about it. The lady at Holland and Barrett said, “We have pumpkin seeds?”
I quickly got on the phone and asked Andrew to grab a couple of cans in the US and bring them home. He brought this organic, local pumpkin from Corvallis which made a really nice pumpkin bread. Is it still “local” if you put it in a suitcase and bring it to London?
