Inge Koffi is a frequent visitor from Germany to Thixendale.
She is a talented photographer, but also excels in baking peanut butter cookies for sale under a parasol outside the house.
Their popularity was expressed in a Christmas card she received from walkers addressed to ‘The Cookie Lady’.
Her homemade Parkin, made to a traditional North Yorkshire recipe, is very popular around October/November
(When it’s raining, walkers are welcome to knock on the door to request cookies).
In between baking she helps to organise Julian’s exhibitions.
