... into a copper moon shaped plate that is slowly heated by a electric bar element. The cheese slowly melts and as it does it runs and drips from the wedge.

It was a fun meal to have on a cool wet evening. Our return bus ride proved too hard for us as we failed to locate the bus stop, walking round and round, getting ...
