I'm a sucker for fancily packaged - usually overpriced - and 'organic' type foods. I admit it. I want to buy coffee in full bean form out a sack and every cut of meat possible from a previously happy cow. I want my food shop to feel like a trip to a farmer's market - in the absence of any actual farmer's market.
One of my favourite places in New York was the Whole Foods store at Columbus Circle. Sadly the only Whole Foods stores in the UK are in London and Glasgow - both far away from me. This was my first trip and I was pretty overwhelmed by the food awesomeness.
The meat counter was incredible and I was particularly enamoured with the different burger flavours. We decided to recreate the Turkey, Spinach and Feta Patties we saw once we got home. I'm no nutritionist but these can't be bad for you. Our friend the turkey is low in fat, high in protein and generally super at being tasty. I'm so glad we had a go at these, I really want to make them again and get them on a BBQ - if the sun ever comes out.
