Foodie Penpals October 2012

31 Oct

This month I was lucky enough to be matched to Gesa who sent my parcel from Germany! You can follow Gesa on Twitter here. I can’t wait to use the ingredients that I was sent…although, to be honest, there were very few biscuits left from the moment that I opened the parcel!

The parcel came with a lovely letter explaining what to do with all the food in the parcel.

Here are the contents explained…

"Spekulatius" cookies. Cinnamon spiced and very Christmassy - none left!
