In my kitchen this month, my cookbook and writing stash has been further expanded. Thanks to the trash ‘n’ treasure markets, and a little online shopping for the first batch…
…and the annual Spring Lifeline Bookfair for most the second batch, as well as Rishi Desai's Modern Indian cookbook which I purchased off him, and had him autograph. Oh, by the way, he works in my office! Each time I go to this bookfair I think that I’ll only get a few things, however each year my interests grow and vary and I end up with a heavy bag full of goodies. I now clearly understand the need for a “granny trolley” at this event, as you can store so much inside, and it wheels for easy convenience. Next year I’ll get one, for sure.
In my kitchen is local produce in the form of eggs from Gunning. Such a cute name and logo ‘Gunning Bum Nuts’ (GBN) makes me smile every time I open the fridge and spy the egg carton. I understand that the family behind GBN has just got an egg stamper made up in the image of their trade marked logo. Too cute.
In my kitchen I now have a set of 3 crumbing trays. I saw these in a magazine years ago, but only spotted them recently at new homewares store in the Tuggeranong Hyperdome, ACT. The store: Off the Pallet, and I picked up these beauties for a crazy 60% off store opening sale. I put them through their paces by crumbing up some delicious chicken tenders.
From the same store I picked up these cute little bowls. Just the perfect size for photo props for my food photography hobby.
Now for a little something grownup - Campari. I really think my tastes are changing, maturing even. Campari. It’s bitter, orangey, herby and just begging for warmer days, freshly squeezed orange juice, and ice filled glasses.
Viewed from my kitchen window are our blossoming fruit trees.
