Combined with three diverse, delicious cheeses, it makes a great vegetarian alternative to sausage rolls.Read More

California is definitely growing on me!
We were fortunate enough to spend just over a week there again recently, and we skipped around from Los Angeles, to San Francisco to San Diego in that time. Whilst Mr G had business meetings most days, I searched out places to eat brunch and dinner.
