    Hob Nobs are so yesterday....

    ... Because today I found out that Lidl are once again selling the utterly addictive Nurnburger Lebkuchen (chocolate covered ginger biscuits). These chunky coaster sized lovelies have a good thick cocolate topping and the biscuit has the consistancy of a jaffa cake. They are £1.39 for a pack of 6 and I recommed you buy 2 packs. The first won't last long, believe me.
    I blame Ric for getting me onto these a couple of years back when he offered me a 'free sample' with a cup of coffee at his house. I'm now hooked, and it's a good job that they only sell them at Christmas time!

    I'll think you'll find they sell them all year round. At least here they do.

    The forerunner of today's Lebkuchen was called the "honey cake" and its history can be traced back to the Egyptians, the Greeks, and the Romans. They believed that honey, the only sweetener widely available to them, was a gift of the deities and had magical and healing powers. Honey cakes were also worn as a talisman in battle or as protection against evil spirits.
    They're not gingerbread, they're magical.

    Dunkable? This is very important. The old snap-in-half-dunk won't do!

    They're more like cakes than biscuits. [If they're the ones I'm thinking of.]

    Think Jaffa.

    Like these.

    I was just saying they're soft like a Jaffa. So they absorb the coffee/tea/whatever.

    They're also iced/glazed so they're more resistant to breakage.

    Please don't tell me they are available all year round. It would be bad!

    Stollen! Soaked in Jack Daniels! Seriously, try it as a dessert with fresh cream - amazing!

    German food is very under-rated in my opinion. They do some great desserts, pies & pastries, & as long as you like pork you are ok. It's not such a good place for vegetarians though.

    I had some delicious pork loin steaks served with a sour cherry sauce last summer while staying on the Rhine. German red wine is another secret they keep from us...... how often do you see it for sale here?
