A visit to patisserie

The patisserie is just across the road from the school.


First thing in the morning they cook the cakes in special containers with burning wood on top and underneath.


The cook lifted the lid to show me the cakes sizzling away.


Then Grandma bags them all up and hangs them up and they sell them for 60 cents for a bag of five.


And jolly good they are too!

Next to the school there’s also a shop that sells the most delicious biscuits called caterpillar biscuits.


I think the name refers to the shape rather than any of the ingredients.


They are a delicate, crispy coconut biscuit, fatally moreish,


and only fifty cents a large bag – I have already discovered that resistance is futile.
