Cookbook Challenge 6 – Great British Pub Food

The Cookbook Challenge

The one where I visit the View from Valhalla podcast…

 View from Valhalla has already been around a few years. It started off as a podiobook (podcast fiction) review blog, then a few book reviews were added, and later on it appeared as podcast as well. Odin1Eye, who reviews and… Continue Reading →
