4:43pm 5th August 2013

Hotu Vanilla - the original and most beautiful vanilla from the sacred island Raiatea from Tahiti

4:47pm 5th August 2013

Definitely the "Les choco-biscuits" kit. Great for professional cookie in my kitchen.

4:56pm 5th August 2013

I would love the "Les choco-biscuits"kit for me, but also the tea for my husband, who loves tea. I could make him beautiful biscuits to drink with the champagne of teas!

5:32pm 5th August 2013

I would love to use the les choco-biscuits. I think my daughter and I would have a lot of fun making these.

Thanks for the opportunity.

6:57pm 5th August 2013

Wow! You are so generous to give away free goodies to those good lovers who can't make it to France themselves! That really is such a lovely thing to do. I'd absolutely adore every single thing in that basket, but the one that entices me most of all is: "Pierre Herme - Preparation for chocolat chaud". It sounds fantastic, and the effort you went to in order to get it just makes it that much more special. Thanks! -Alli

7:05pm 5th August 2013

a) "Les choco-biscuits": the beautiful kit to make your own "petit ecolier" type chocolate biscuits with chocolate molds, biscuit cutter and a book of 26 recipes

how can i not be amazed by its lovely moulds of paris

7:28pm 5th August 2013

How wonderful is Les choco-biscuit..and a delightful tin to put them in...but my favourite would be the nougat, a taste of France..

Mariann Trieber
8:05pm 5th August 2013

Cannot decide between the biscuits and the mezes kalacs fuszer... but probably the choco biscuit maker wins for me...

8:10pm 5th August 2013

Pierre herme's hot choc entices me the most!! Its so rare to find an amazing hot chocolate and i've been craving for one all winter!!! :D

8:12pm 5th August 2013

Hi there
I have to say the whole collection of goodies would be a wonderfully delicious prize. Each item outdoes the previous but the "champagne" of teas entices me the most.

Erika Todi
8:44pm 5th August 2013

Judith, the giveaway basket is just fantastic! Each and every item is a real gem to have- in saying that I would looooove to make my own petit ecolier- Yummm! But I must say the Tahitian vanilla was love at first sight! Not to mention the mezes kalacs fuszer ;-) good luck to the winner, fingers crossed for myself hehe

"A".... Please !!! Just so I can beat my sister Zoe Chamel...HE HE :) Sister rivalry but if I can't would love "f"...

11:39pm 5th August 2013

So hard to choose between so many wonderful things! I would love the kit for making my own petit écolier biscuits, but I don't think I could resist the smoked paprika or the tea from Shanghai! So generous of you to put this all together during your travels! I love the basket too...

Angie Trius
1:11am 6th August 2013

Thanks for this beautiful idea and for your generosity. Everything appeals to me and entices me: the bag that invites me to go to the street markets in Barcelona, the vanilla to make pannacotta, the paprika for a spicy chickpea stew, the spices for a summer BBQ, the tea to relax on my deck and the biscuit set to keep my daughter happy. Good luck to all!!!

Ann Clemance

Very smart Les Meron !!! And generous as well to think about your fan club. I love the basket idea and all items are high quality, the lucky winner will certainly enjoy it a lot. Thanks to you.

Thank you for putting the lovely competition together and sharing your special holiday and love of food with us all!

5:36pm 12th August 2013

I adore it all. I dream of travelling through Europe and I'm pretty sure my journey would mirror yours with all the food pictures. If I had to pick one it would be the cookie stamp

Brittany Smith
5:39pm 12th August 2013

My gosh it's hard to choose just one! The whole pamper looks amazing. However if I had to choose just one, I would have to choose the Les choco-biscuits making kit. Those type of french biscuits are my favourite of all time, and being able to make them would be awesome :)

The Hotu Vanilla!! Ever since I took your macaron class I have been obsessed with the intensity and aroma of the Hotu vanilla pod. And the lovely story you told us about how you discovered the plantation was wonderful. My macarons are not the same without it!
