Nicey replies: Hello Hiromi,

I think any of us would have bought 24 choco-pies to get our hands on a genuine Dr You stationery set, so don't feel bad about that. I haven't spotted Dark Chocolate Hobnobs as yet I'm sure we'll see them soon though.

I think also we can see Dr You's basic plan, it involves fruit, dairy products and chocolate cakes. I hope he surprises us next time round with some strange combinations maybe involving fish or cabbage.

Nicey replies: Hello Hiromi,

It sounds like you had a lovely time back in Tokyo, even if you didn't get your cup of green tea at the airport..

Of course the main reason for our book being published in Japanese is so that you can read it. I've pointed this out at length to all concerned. Fingers crossed that you'll find it next time.

We have cherry trees all along our road, which have just began to blossom too. Each year they produce masses of black cherries most of which are eaten by birds or fall on to the road. This year Wifey plans to ask permission to grab a few pounds of them and turn them into her new found best drink ever, Cherry flavoured Vodka. NCOTAASD ISP Dr Borrill did this with his cherries and worked very well indeed.

Ginger Nut Review
Nicey replies: Morning Nicky,

I think the stuff was called Instant Whip, which must have harnessed the same sort of alchemy as Angel Delight to turn base cold milk into puddings, using nothing more than a whisk.

We shouldn't forget Sue's original message that prompted all this Welsh cake making.

Nicey replies: Dear Hiromi,

I think that biscuits can be ingredients in cakes, as the digestive biscuit and ginger nut often form the base for Cheesecakes. So biscuits are quite prepared for this treatment. I don't think it can go the other way though. Perhaps the closest is the sponge fingers that get used in desserts which are very dry and brittle which have almost entered a state where by they could be used as biscuits. Even so that is no the same thing as smashing them up or treating them with a solution that would turn them into biscuits.

Perhaps some of the people outside of Japan should think about that, although you might have to do the translation again.

P.S. I like the strawberry on top, very tempting.

Nicey replies: Hello Hiromi,

Yes Playbox biscuits were square and very much missed by many NCOTAASD readers as are Iced biscuits in general.

Your Potato biscuits sound like they would make better companions to cold glasses of beer than hot cups of tea. Certainly the only products that I know of in the UK that are comparable in recipe would be savoury snacks rather sweet or even savoury biscuits. With Wifey being Irish we do have extensive potato experience in the NCOTAASD ranks. Indeed Granda Wifey is basically powered by potatoes, boiled floury ones. These are required with virtually every meal, (it used to be every meal but he has become slightly more liberal in past years).

Another Irish staple is potato bread which includes some mashed potato in it. Looking more like a thick heavy square pancake rather than a loaf, they are usually fried with bacon or sausages and eaten for breakfast.

We also hear that the Japanese version of our book is at long last to be released in Japan this month, and we hope to have our copy soon.
