Stoke City F.C. ~ Sir Stanley Cashews

Introduction: Sir Stanley Matthews is regarded as one of the greatest English kickballers in history. He is the only player to have been knighted while still playing. His nicknames include “The Wizard of the Dribble” and “The Magician”.

He was a near vegetarian so I think he would have enjoyed this recipe.
