Hot chorizo and bean stew
( SERVES 4 )
I have developed a taste for Wellington. On recent visits, I found the diversity and quality of the cafes and restaurants impressive - the locals are spoilt for choice. Harringtons of Miramar supply restaurant and specialist retailers with an eclectic mix of international-style sausages as well as fresh meat cuts.
