“When you are after honey with a balloon, the great thing is not to let the bees know you’re coming.” Winnie the Pooh
One of my most treasured books as a child was The Pooh Cook Book. The back cover reads:
“Here is a cook book specially for children and for everyone else who sometimes fancies a little smackerel of something.”
I still often fancy a “little smackerel of something” and I still use my Pooh cook book for cooking. I know the flapjack recipe off by heart but always have it open as the line-drawings by EH Shepard are such a pleasure to look at whilst mixing all the sweet stuff.
The other firm favourite in our house is the cinnamon toast – especially on Christmas morning.
