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.

piuleta y tronador

Language: Spanish

Description: This name refers to the male and female parts, which modesty forbids that I shall translate. These pastries, shaped appropriately, are traditionally given by men to their loves, wrapped in a knotted handkerchief or mocador, with marzipan fruits on the Día de los Enamorados, which falls on the same day as the mighty Valencian festival of the Día de la Comunidad. The 9th October is a good day to be in town.
