YAY! Yesterday I received my parcel from a fellow foodie blogger, participating in EBBP#6 – Euro Blogging by Post, kindly hosted by Johanna at The Passionate Cook. I waited for the morning and some better light than last night, though, to take a picture of all the goodies Jenni over at pertelote.org packed for me.
(And Jenni might have infected me with a virus called Librarything, too… )
Along with the goodies came a very kind and funny letter, including some traditional British Royal gossip, and pages from a magazine featuring an interview with Giorgio Locatelli and an excerpt from his latest book - I can hardly wait to settle down with a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of wine and read this.
Thank you Jenni, this is a great gift package, and I just love every detail of it!
Detail, as in…
…what could I name first… of course, since the title of this post is about cuteness, the little knitted jumper / egg warmer to keep my breakfast eggs cosy and warm, along with an egg cup. This will have a prominent position on my Sunday breakfast table .
Then, there are the absolutely gorgeous and delicious mango, white chocolate and cardamom biscuits Jenni baked and packed neatly in a tupperware container. They taste as good as they smell (which is heavenly). Since I love anything mango and cookies and muffins with white choc are among my favourites, these are perfect!
To go with the biscuits Jenni added a jar of tea from Mariage Frères in France. Another heavenly scented foodie gift I will try soon, probably in the neat and cute little tea infuser decorated with a love bug which was also in the parcel.
I am not only a Foodfreak, but also a coffee aficionado, so the chocolate covered espresso beans are a sweet treat to my liking. And I am really curious about organic “treacle tart” chocolate from Hope&Greenwood.
The last but not the least item in the package is a small cupcake which is actually a ball of bath salt (Cheeky Chimp berry cupcake bath fizzer). Guess what will be in my bathtub tomorrow….
Thanks again to Jenni for this wonderful and creative parcel and to Johanna for hosting this event!
