  1. Bubble and squeak must come in a variety of leftovers for sure, as my eastender buddy makes it with roasted potatoes, and a few other leftovers, ( cant recall exactly what as it’s been a while, bangers maybe ) but, I’m pretty sure there was no cabbage in it, and sort of frittatas it all together with eggs…All I know, is it was delicious.

        1. it does not really matter, as sometimes various sources can differ on issues. Finocchio translates directly to fennel. Hunger For Freedom is a book on Madiba’s food http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2009/jul/20/nelson-mandela-food-south-africa – I found this on google this morning 🙂
