(My straw poll tells me that Kale does seem to be much more liked by the distaff side of the table.)
Our first new recipe this week is from Jessica Merchant at How Sweet Eats and it’s especially for those who may have just stopped ‘working from home’ and gone back into the office. So, for breakfast or lunch how about a Gruyere, Fig Jam and Arugula Sandwich?
