Poor you, having such a rough time here, not able to find anything!

I'm thinking you need to start visiting a MUCH larger Coop or else start doing your shopping online via Coop@Home and having it delivered.

On the Coop@Home website, I see they have "Coop Lady Fingers"



as well as "Cantreau Boudoirs" which are described as original französische Löffelbiscuits





I'm thinking that it's probable that the problem you're having finding things is that your "local" Coop is either small OR you are looking for things that they don't happen to stock due to lack of popularity in your specific area.So, the Coop@Home is probably a good idea for you as then you can see the entire range instead of just what gets stocked in the store you visit regularly.


To see the selection of cookies (aka "biscuits") go to "Supermarket" then "Food Cupboard" then "Biscuits" and then "Biscuits" again.


I hope that helps!

Yep, that doesn't bother me so much as that s/he (I think "he") took the time to groan you but nothing else... THAT is annoying.

its just that the EF is not someone's personal search engine. Some folks beleive that they have a family of elves whose only goal in life is to provide them with answers.
If you want to get a loan for property here, wouldnt you go to the nearest Bank and not the EF?

How about asking at Coop for a pack Löffelbiskuit, before rushing to the forum, and posting a thread

I tend to be sympathetic because I was certainly not confident enough to ask anything in the local shops for a long time and my hubby doesn't care so 1. doesn't know and / or 2. doesn't bother to look / help me look nine times out of ten. So, for me, EF IS the "go to" ... but then again, I don't do anything so complicated as doing / asking about bank loans anyhow.

Re: Löffelbiskuits or ladyfingers

I didnt know what Löffelbiskuits were and in my head I went straight to okra and then I was like, okra in Tiramisu...
LOL. On a different note, I know where to find okra (not canned, fresh ones), if anyone has been looking.
Its available at Barkat in Schmiede Wiedikon. I usually use it for fish curry. I've attached a shot of the fish curry and you can find the recipe here. http://food.ninemsn.com.au/recipes/i...omato-and-okra

p/s sorry I derailed from the topic! The Okra recipe Odile posted looks so yum it threw me off!

Re: Löffelbiskuits or ladyfingers

For those of you in the French part, they're called Boudoirs or langue-de-chat (cats tongue) ...

and in the Italian part Savoiardi/Savoiardo.

Tiramisu is and will always be one of my favourite desserts! What else can you use them for?
