This was a new experience to my family, and a good one. Had never heard of this but was so easy to put together just following your recipe as written. Looked lovely when it was done and the sharp cheddar cheese I used gave it a great flavor. The texture was a little reminiscent of Irish Soda Bread to us and that's a good thing as far as we're concerned. Would really go well in the fall with stews or chilis in my opinion

I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
