a few slices of your favourite sourdough (I love The Dusty Apron or Daily Bread)
a handful of parsley, finely chopped
good olive oil
chardonnay vinegar
Ortiz anchovies

At home, my Italian partner makes me toast with parsley, butter, anchovies and lemon zest, and at work Alfie Ingham (head chef at Hugo’s) makes me these delicious snacks.
