Herman the German
This morning my friend Cheryl popped over to give me Herman, a sourdough starter for a German friendship cake. It's a cute idea. You feed and care for Herman according to the instructions, and then after 10 days he gets very hungry and you feed him apples, raisins and much more besides and he turns into a cake! If you live nearby and would like a Herman of your very own to care for, please let me know and I'll drop him over next week once he's grown a bit.
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
