The postman (mailman) arrived at my door the other day with a VERY heavy parcel. He said, “I think they are sending you sand from the desert”, as he saw it was postmarked Las Vegas, Nevada. I had not ordered anything from the States so was rather puzzled. Inside was 12 lbs (yes, twelve pounds) of Softasilk cake flour and 2 lbs Vital Wheat Gluten. Also inside was a little note to say this was so that I could work through Rose’s new book and make the recipes as written. (Most of you know that we cannot buy bleached flour in the UK). Signed…..FRESHKID.
I am still overwhelmed by Caspar’s generosity and thoughfulness. There was no present possible that would have made me happier. Thank you Caspar, you have a huge heart and are an angel.
And also thank you to Rose and the blog/forum for linking all the wonderful community of bakers from around the world. I feel truly grateful and privileged to be part of it.
