BBM3: Eva's Package from Chiara Arrives
I received my parcel a few days ago, it came from Chiara at http://www.lacuocapetulante.blogspot.com/. The parcel was filled with Italian delicacies, and I am so looking forward to trying it all out.
First there is an Italian cake, a panettone, will keep this for Christmas since Chiara wrote that it is traditionally eaten at Christmas in Italy.
Then there are 3 jars of Sardinian honey (eucalyptus, orange and daffodil), since Chiara often spends summers on Sardinia.
A huge block of white nougat was also in the box, Torrone a speciality from north Italy and also eaten at Christmas (doubt that it will last that long with me...!).
Chiara has also included a jar of her homemade preserved peppers (for those of you who understand Italian the recipe can be found on http://lacuocapetulante.blogspot.com/2005/11/pomodori-secchi-2.html.
Finally there was a Christmas decoration, a delicious card from a chocolaterie in Milan, some food pages from her newspaper, and a beautifully handwritten letter (in French) which I will reply to soon. Thanks Chiara!
Looking forward to BBM4!!
