I find that when I'm confronted with a cheese board, whether it's in a restaurant, at Christmas or even just in my manky bed on a Tuesday evening, I experience a wave of warmth and satisfaction almost immediately - and if someone pulls out the Port - that's it, life cannot get any better.
I love cheese so much that I specifically requested a big board at my mum’s wedding, which she then managed to indulge me with by providing 19 cheeses, an endless supply of Branston and enough crackers to feed the entire parrot enclosure at Chester Zoo for a year.
It was like music to my ears then when I was told of the fantastic September special over at Crazy Pedro’s – the Ploughman’s Munch. Yes, everyone’s favourite after-dinner indulgence has now been made into a pizza and judging by the pictures – this bad boy is a beauty.
Featuring everything you’d expect on a top-class Ploughman’s, you will find Ham, Apples, Branston Pickle, Sliced Pickled Onions, Wensleydale Cheese and a final sprinkling of Watercress.
So get on down during September and make sure you give this outstanding creation a try. It will be available every day in full pie and slice form at both the NQ and Bridge Street locations.
