Maypole Antipasto


The owners of this Cambridge pub are from Italy, and it shows in their Antipasto Mediterranean. The dish comes served with two pieces of large, crusty bread, and the main part of the meal is made from sundried tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, various herbs and a few other bits and pieces, sliced small and put into a serving dish next to the bread. It’s really quite excellent, and filling, and one of the cheapest things on their menu, at £4.95. I thoroughly enjoyed mine whilst watching a lecture on the internet about dark matter, via their free wifi system. Well worth the time spent here (I write whilst sitting in their outdoor space, which is covered well with giant umbrellas, protecting us from the recently very unpredictable weather).

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.
