It is an odd Easter without any eggs. We had meant to visit a chocolatier just a couple of days before lockdown, and forgot and missed our chance. So I am planning to make a feijoa and ginger cake later today as a sort of local version of parkin. (I always remember parkin as an Easter thing but I can’t find much justification for that. But it’s cake, so who needs justification?)
The puzzle this weekend is from late 2014 in the Enigmatic Variations series. Given that date, I can point you at a fifteensquared blog as well as my own setter’s blog on this site – but do try the puzzle first. Next week I plan to upload the 2019 APEX crossword, the competition for which has now completed.
That will coincide with a special Inquisitor for these troubled times. Look out for it.
