Kölln Cakes Review
Nicey replies: Well yes a great many traditional German biscuits are essentially Gingerbread and we would hope so from the country that brought us Hanzel and Gretel. However, over the years we've had all sorts of things out of Germany that weren't Ginger bread. Follow this magic link into our review archive and scroll down to Germany.

Nicey replies: A huge NCOTAASD Hoorah for your Kazakhstani tea ladies and their foul mouthed snacks. I feel somehow more worldly wise from this knowledge.

Nicey replies: As you may know Wifey is Irish so we have the whole geo/political map thing under control. Its all quite simple really.

The British Isles are a bunch of islands on Europe's western Atlantic coast. The two biggest are Great Britain and Ireland, but there are lots more including the Isle of Man, The Channel Islands, the Shetlands, Orkneys and Western Isles. Great Britain is divided into three countries England, Wales and Scotland. Ireland has two The Republic of Ireland (Eire) and Northern Ireland which is a part of the United Kingdom along with England, Wales and Scotland.

So to recap Great Britain is the big island. The UK is the political union of four countries.

I'm not sure that Paul actually implied that Ireland is part of Great Britain, but he did say Ireland which as I have explained encompasses two separate European member states as the cake obsessed Austrians should be aware.

Good grief. I need a cuppa after that.

Nicey replies: The Scones are for Eire, as they are a type of Soda Bread made traditionally with sour buttermilk that's a good call on Irish cuisine. Mind you they could have put a few sultanas in them.

The Shortbread is for the UK but is more evocative of Scotland to us. Maybe visitors to the UK don't really take in the Scottish regional tartan package thing, and just think (London | Stratford Upon Avon | Cambridge/Oxford | Scotland (I think that covers it)) = Shortbread Fingers with your coffee, regardless of the fact they were exported over a national boundary. I think they should have had a nice big slice of Victoria Sponge filled with fresh cream and strawberry jam for us.

Strawberry Newton Review
Nicey replies: Hello Maggie,

Just off off the Strand is a small Sainsburys supermarket, and just across the other side is a small Tesco's Express. Either of these would be a useful biscuit top up spot. The nearest Marks and Spencers is just up above the Strand opposite Covent Garden Tube Station. If you clean out those three you'll need to charter your own plane to get the biscuits back to California.

Last time I was in Silicon Valley I had to eat Strawberry Newtons, purchased in down town San José.
