It's so funny that you like pickles. I was never bothered about them until I moved to Latvia, now I make any visitors bring me pickled onions ..... made even better when I can get hold of some decent cheese and have a 'ploughman's' ....... yummy!!
..... and I need to know what the 'Moro' cookbook is?! (Notice how I have zoomed in on all things food!!!!!)

That's so funny, one of my favorite things is a cheese and pickled onion sandwich, vulgar but true!
The Moro cookbook is from the middle eastern restaurant of the same name in London, there are some wonderful recipes in it! I could talk about food all day!!
