Taste of the Week. Medjool Dates from Mr Bells

Taste of the Week
Medjool Dates
The dates; coffee scoop gives an idea of size.

Just spotted these a few days ago on the Twitter feed of Mr Bells in the English Market. Made a beeline for the stall to get my hands on these big richly delicious dates, widely regarded as the very best. 

There are many sweet ways to eat these. Came across a striking one in Jacques a few months back when dessert was Medjool Date stuffed with Ardsallagh goats cheese, with Almonds and a full circle of Blood Orange. A gorgeous combination.

Didn't have any Ardsallagh handy when I came back from the market but did have a bottle of Sauternes on hand (Lamourette 2005) and a glass of that proved a perfect match for the luscious dates, our Taste of the Week.
