It is a new year and my oven is playing up so I thought that this would be a great time for the Sweet Tooth Chronicles to produce its first savory dish. This recipe is modified slightly from an amazing dish I had at Fratelli Fresh in Sydney a couple of months ago. If you want the original recipe you can find it on the Fratelli Fresh website.To experience this and many more of there amazing dishes I highly recommend you find the time to go visit them in person!
