Au revoir to old friends and Hello to Herbert Hedley.

This week we bid a fond farewell to two of our dearest and most loyal customers, Bernie and Rob who are moving away from Hampshire.  Getting to know the people and their dogs who come through our door has been a delight and we do appreciate how lucky we are to have such great punters.  The very best to you both from all of us at Madeleine’s Deli. 

Over the last couple of days, I have been hoodwinked into believing Spring is on my doorstep.  I am now sitting at my desk looking through the window at the wind and rain lashing the trees on a miserable grey Sunday afternoon.  This is most definitely soup weather and fortunately we have in the deli a veritable smorgasbord of my favourites – Celeriac with Apple & Bacon, Leek & Potato, Mushroom with Sherry, Cream & Truffle Oil and not forgetting our very own Super Green Soup with warming Ginger & Turmeric. 

This is also perfect weather for a cosy pub supper and where better than the Thomas Lord at West Meon which I have frequented and enjoyed for many years.  Husband and I had a fine supper with lovely thespian friends who are in the process of setting up Herbert Hedley, a curated gallery of arts, crafts and treasures for your home.  This will take shape in a couple of weeks in the form of a pop-up shop just up the road from us in Lavant Street!  Really worth a look.
