Saucy Sausage, Croydon

When I first spotted the Saucy Sausage along Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon I had to refrain from doing a childish giggle simply because of its name. If the name was created to make it a talking point between locals and passers-by it certainly does the trick, though you do have to be looking pretty closely […]

Spinach And Kale Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Looking at my images of this mac ‘n’ cheese I realise I am an incredibly messy cook that managed to splatter stuff everywhere and cause spinach leaves to go rogue.
