Peter the Flautist

You know how much I appreciate your cooking, and these look delicious, but I'm not sure I'd like them as I really don't go for stem-ginger. I'm sure everyone chez vous would be most dissapointed if I had to refuse one! The dictionaries I can access quickly suggest to me that a Whim Wham is a whimsical ornament or dress, is Mr C crocheting for you now? AH! more research suggests an 18thC trifle - that is more plausible I think.

I was just going to ask what a Whim Wham was -- no doubt you will tell us if Peter is right. The biscuits look wonderful. I can't imagine why you and your family are not all extremely fat -- I'm sure we would be if you were cooking for us.

I ADORE stem ginger ... when peckish I just have a lump of it straight out of the jar as some might indulge in ice cream from the tub!

Is Peter right?? - I love triffles! More about Whim Wham please?

Those sound fabulous but I have now been to five (5!!!) shops trying to find ginger in syrup. I can't believe it, but it seems to have disappeared. I guess I must have been the only one buying it.

Starving masses in west London, so please email parcel of chocolate and ginger crisps (no hazelnuts, thanks)urgently!
