Thursday Challenge: Food at Fortnum and Mason !

Today's Thursday Challenge is FOOD (Food Markets, Ingredients, Cooking, Baking, Pots, Pans,...)
For a foodie like me a visit to Fortnum and Mason was a must during my stay in London. Situated in an imposing building on London’s Piccadilly street, the store is magnificent with gilded furnishings, marble flooring and a beautiful atrium. It is also quintessentially English, with its staff still wearing top hats and frock coats.

It has a dazzling array of foods stuff and delicacies and is known for its very high quality and exquisitely wrapped goods.


It also has a very delectable Bread and Cheese section. 





But my favorite food stalls were obviously in the Confectionery area !


I loved the sweet crystallized veggies and fruits !


And I loved to watch  the figures of Mr Fortnum and Mr Mason make their appearance every hour :)
