Irish Flour in Crouch End

Thanks to Odhrán for the latest pictures. He's an Irish man living in London, who seems to miss Irish flour that much he moved to a place that has a Budgens which sells Irish flour!

Ok, it might be a coincidence, but I'd like to think the love of flour was the main reason.

Crouch End

A lovely little spread that seems to be in a special "taste of ireland" section. Poor Odlums would probably rather be playing with all the other flours.

As Odhrán says..

"We have a main shelf with a large and colourful selection of flour in the home baking section".

... and he is right. a lovely range of colours, and i like the hoops design on the Budgens home brand.

They have a good range, could do with a bit of filling and tidying, but otherwise not bad at all.

7/10 - I added a bonus point for the international flour, but took it away for being segregated.

    As much as I apreciate flour and the noble art of flour arranging, I do sometimes feel that the purity of beauty achievable with flour can be lost in the sheer quantity of flour-based products that are put on one shelf.

    That is why I have always respected Yamikizo's work so much. The sheer breathtaking beauty of his flour arrangements, which often use no more than one single bag of flour really do prove that in flour arranging, "Less is More."

    Let's not get Quantity mixed up with Quality guys! Please!

    You can see the focus is on the two colours and how they have attempted to have the flours lined up across the two shelves. Maybe it would have been nicer if the small plain flour was on another shelf. It would given a nicer lines.

    This can be chalked up to the superior color rendering of Cree LED chips. Cree is a partner of LED Waves, providing LEDs for some of our products like the wildly popular Genesys L Series LED T8 tube light.

    Some might say the people behind this are crazy, and i would agree, but as flour has to be in the mix, they are a good kind of crazy.
