Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial does a monthly post of what’s in her kitchen. She invites other bloggers to join her. So today is my first ‘What’s in my Kitchen’. Celia’s blog is fantastic. I have been reading it for at least a year. Check it out at: Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.
In my kitchen is:
my new tool box. With 2 houses, we were finding it expensive buying 2 of everything, then Maus came up with the idea of getting a toolbox for those things I only had one of. It is brilliant. We now take it back and forth.
the new shelves that Maus made. The shelves in the pantry were about 40cms apart which wasted too much space so … instructions were given …. and now I have 4 new shelves. They are so good. Just the right height to fit jars and cans and not so deep that you lose things at the back.
my new dividers for my utensils drawer. The utensils drawer had a commercial divider but it didn’t fit properly. This one has been custom made to accommodate everything I wanted and was made to fit. Maus’ handiwork, not mine.
my Thermapen. I just love it. I was really sick of unreliable kitchen thermometers so I got on the internet one day and researched them. The consensus of opinion was that Thermapen was the best. I concur – it is so accurate. I love it.
In my kitchens is:
my falafel maker. It was a Christmas present from dear Maus who traipsed all over Perth for it. She couldn’t find one, so she ordered it in. She assures me that she did not know the quality (or lack of) when she ordered it. I’ve yet to use it so it may end up being more useful than it looks. If anyone knows where I could buy a quality falafel maker, I would love to know.
In my kitchen is:
a ravioli former. I bought it the other day. It looked so wonderful, I couldn’t resist. I am going to have to get into making my own pasta and make some ravioli to justify the purchase. I have been saying for ages that I will start making pasta when I have a source of good quality, cheap eggs. Sounds like little chickens calling.
another new purchase – a lattice cutter. I saw it at Kitchen Warehouse and just had to have it. I will definitely be using it the next time I make a tart.
In my kitchen are:
my tiny spoon measures that I bought in New York ages ago. I had not used them until the other day when I needed to measure my yoghurt starter. A smidgen was called for. I dug deep, deep into my drawers and there they were.
So what is in your kitchen?
