The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

These may be stuffed with pecorino cheese mixed with egg yolks, sugar and grated lemon rind, or the dough may be sweetened and filled with ricotta cheese mixed with egg yolks, sugar, grated chocolate, almonds and cinnamon.
