An excellent combination


If you’ve ever owned a toasting device, such as the George Foreman grilling machine, you will understand that if you wish to make a toasted sandwich with one, it’s best to include cheese in the filling, so it melts and combines the other ingredients together very satisfyingly. I’ve recently tried such a thing at The Maypole in Cambridge. My favourite is the mozarella, sundried tomato and basil toasted sandwich. It often comes with chips (unless you specify otherwise) and salad, all of which is complimented by condiments such as mayonnaise, tomato ketchup, vinegar, salt and pepper. Quite filling, absolutely delicious, and only £5.50. Well worth a try if you’re in the area.

Paul studied computer science and theoretical physics for his degree from Trinity College, Cambridge and later did post-graduate studies in International Finance. He is a concert-grade classical pianist and likes to play Rachmaninov. He reads so long as the book is interesting, and never if it isn't (even if it's on his academic course) and does crosswords when he’s not socializing, and often even when he is. He maintains a keen interest in mentalism (think 'Derren Brown') to the point of researching enough for a book or two, and is currently starting a company that he hopes will be as stimulating a challenge in the coming years as he's found it so far. He also gives the company permission to make him insanely wealthy in the process.
