Thank you, JulieB.  I'm sure someone will test this soon and report back.  It looks yummy.  Thanks so much for the time you donated translating it for all the English speakers.

Thanks Cecilia.  It is a combination of exercises for me so translating into English is one, but the most frightening is testing the recipes, which I won't do until spring or summer (UK) when everyone is out of my kitchen, including cats, bless them ...
