While in London, we passed through Borough Market quite by chance; we were supposed to be making our way to a rail station, when we chanced on it. Borough Market is now seen as an expensive tourist attraction, but it's also seen as an amazing place where the best of European (and English, in case they don't quite see themselves as part of the mess) food is showcased. 
The whole family tried a range of cured meats and cheese. This reminded the children of their promise to our London hosts, that they will cook them a meal. It was a Friday night, and a rather cold one; the kids chose some saucissons to use in a carbonara. 
Alone, in someone else's kitchen in a foreign country, by being resourceful and opening cupboards and drawers...
... they found the necessary tools and kitchen equipment...
... and produced this very splendid meal. 
'Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers - Romeo and Juliet, Act 4, Scene 2.
