Food | Recipe

A slice of freshly toasted sourdough and homemade smoked paprika baked beans are the perfect weekend brunch treat! The gentle heat distribution of cast iron allows the sauce to gently cook and develop the wonderful flavours. The smooth sand enamel interior also means that the pan will not stain.
