sharing recipes from one generation to the next
Until September the IMK community is in recess, but June was a busy month in my kitchen.In My Kitchen is a brand new set of Scanpan saucepans, part of a bonus gift from Ilve that accompanied my wonderful new cooker. I’ve sent my older pots off to the op shop. New kitchen, new cooker and new pots, I feel spoilt.
In My Kitchen is new timber bread storage bin. I’ve been struggling to find the best solution for storing my homebred sourdough loaves. Putting a freshly baked loaf in the fridge makes the crusts soft and solidifies the loaf while keeping bread at room temperature sealed in a plastic container encourages mould. We bought this box hoping it would provide the optimum storage environment and make our enjoyment of each loaf endure. So far so good, but we have doubts that it will be as effective in summer with high temperatures and humidity. I’ll let you know.In My Kitchen is some beautiful cold pressed avocado oil from the Sunshine Coast. I buy avos from the grower each week so I needed no persuasion to try his oil. It’s buttery flavour makes a delicious salad dressing.
In My Kitchen are some finds from my local op shop. The lidded glass cookie jar was a bargain. It fits perfectly on the shelf above the coffee machine, but it constantly need refilling….
I’ve had three Tupperware strainers in my kitchen for 30ish years. They are in constant use. Imagine my delight when I found their big brother in the op shop for $2. There was no way I was leaving it behind.
In My Kitchen is a bottle of Pol Roger NV, a gift from winemaker Charles Melton for helping pour his luscious red wines at a recent museum release wine tasting we attended in Brisbane. It was tough spending a Sunday morning tasting 10 year old Barossa reds from our favourite winery.
Thanks Charlie, but really, I needed no inducement to help.
Finally, except for paint, my brand new kitchen is complete. I love it!I’m linking up with other IMK obsessives who will continue their personal series until the link up resumes in September.
