Foodie penpals – February 2016

img_5757.jpgThis month’s Foodie Penpal Charlotte was keen to receive a parcel of Asian goodies, finding them difficult to get hold of where she lives. You don’t have to ask me twice to pop to Chinatown for some supplies, and so I went there after work with Andrew to pick up a selection of goodies for her as well as myself!

As xxx said she was very adventurous and loved trying new ingredients, I am afraid I took her at her word and bought the most random selection I could find, including:

  • Dashi (which was a request)
  • Pickled vegetables (for students apparently!)
  • Pickled cucumber
  • Jackfruit crisps
  • Tonic soup stock for chicken soup
  • Asian noodles
  • Rice paper for vietnamese summer rolls
  • Hello panda biscuits


I received a lovely little parcel from Vikki which included some gorgeous chocolate truffles, beautifully striped black and white pasta, garlic scented sea salt, apple crisps, and a range of fruity teas as I had mentioned I was pregnant so avoiding caffeine.
