Sausage Rolls

Some crave croissants, whilst others long for lemon tarts, yet for me there’s nothing finer than pork wrapped in pastry. Read about my mission to rate and review the world’s finest sausage rolls.

Pastry Rhymes

Around the world

Us Brits are mocked

Because of our cuisine
But these jokes fail to appreciate
Our pork and pastry scene
Across this land
We make some splendid snacks
With ground up swine
And I find myself more drawn to them
Than drinking fancy wine
