Special Delivery!


My favourite pavalova-type cake

For a while now, Mummy has been writing a cooking book called “Special Delivery”. It is going to be sold in England and in Australia. It will be launched some time in  December in England and was launched on the fifth of November in Australia. I have personally tasted most of the recipes and can truthfully say that they are all scrumdidilyumptious! They are recipes from all over the world : France England and especially Australia.

Both the flower and the vegetable can be eaten, so when you plant them, you’re hitting two birds with one stone! But there is one thing to be careful of: like pumpkins, they take up a lot of room!

Charles Cooks


I like to help Mama and Daddy do cooking. While Helen and and Rupert were on camp, I made fingerprint biscuits with Mama during a thunderstorm. There was even little white things on the lawn (hail). You make a hole in the biscuits with your finger and fill it up with jam or chocolate. Then you cook it.

I have also helped Daddy make strawberry bread for breakfast. I really like to make thing that you have to knead because I like kneading.
