Hi Maria! How are you getting on?
M: Hola! I'm still making bread, it makes me happy! I am missing cooking. Hope you are OK?
H: Yep, just about hanging in there with home education! Bet the gardens at Picton are wonderful at the moment?
M: Yes the garden is totally beautiful. I think we all need a pick-me-up! You remember when we went to my brother’s Café in Alberic, coffee with brandy at 10 O’clock on Sunday morning? Valencian people, we make everything OK with a bit of brandy coffee. .
H: That certainly woke me up!
M: Carajillo brandy, makes the best brandy coffee.
M: Another of my favourites is Un blanco y negro – a glass of milky ice coffee heavily scented with cinnamon which you drink though a straw.
H: You put brandy in everything! Blackberries and brandy, Lamb cooked in brandy, brandy when you’ve had a baby!!!!!!!
M: Haha – Brandy – totally, a pick-me-up!
Should you have any brandy kicking around, here's another idea we featured in the summer, blackberries in brandy
