Foodie Penpals - April

This month I was really excited to be receiving my parcel from a foodie penpal in Estonia! When Mary got in touch I shared my love of baking and said I would love to have something from her local area to bake with. I was then sent a box full of yummy goodies!
My parcel was wrapped in bright yellow tissue and had a lovely hand written letter to tell me all about the contents. Mary sent me some of her favourite baking spices, cloves (nelk) and cumin (Koomned). I also had some chocolate bunnies, green coconut flakes and a bright tea towel that I just love! My final item was homemade chocolate chip cookies, made with local Esonian ingredients. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of them but they were scrummy. More dense than a cookie we would make in the UK but just perfect for enjoying with a cup of tea! Thank you so much Mary, my parcel was a real treat! Unfortunately this will be my last foodie penpal post for a while as I've decided not to take part for now. I am just so busy with other things and haven't been able to give my parcels the time they need. I have loved the scheme though and hope to be back soon :-)


  1. What a great post, and thank you for being one of the first penpals to get a parcel from Europe! It's been lovely getting to know you and I look forward to seeing you back in Foodie Penpals when you're less hectic :)

  2. Thanks Carol Anne, will hopefully be in touch very soon x
