from one generation to the next
The beginning of each new month marks the time to reflect on what’s been happening In My Kitchen. It’s the time I link up with the lovely Sherry from Sherry’s Pickings to join the worldwide “In My Kitchen” forum of food bloggers. Click on Sherry’s link below to see what’s happening elsewhere.
It’s hot and humid in Brisbane over summer so if I can avoid using the oven, I do. My sourdough starter still needs to be fed and used so we’ve been eating a lot of sourdough flatbread that’s simply cooked in a hot dry pan. I began with the recipe from “Artisan Sourdough Made Simple” by Emilie Raffa, but each incarnation has had a slight adjustment until I have my own personal flatbread recipe which I’ll share next week.
In My Kitchen is a new cookbook “Sweet” by Ottolenghi & Goh. This book has me drooling. I can normally pass dessert by, but based on the number of pages I’ve bookmarked, that may well change. Our Christmas dessert was inspired by the Passionfruit Cheesecake.
In My Kitchen I have a refillable oil spray with a pressure pump I bought in the Boxing Day sales. I have high hopes that I’ll never have to buy a can of olive oil spray from the supermarket again. I also bought a new meat mallet for pounding scallopine.
In My Kitchen we have a complete set of new crockery to replace the scratched, chipped and depleted collection of miss matched odds and sods we’d been using for the passed 20+ years. Every meal feels special when your eating off plates designed by Ellen de Generes for Royal Doulton.
In My Kitchen is this wonderful little banner made with post it notes, satay sticks and string. An especially creative friend made it as a cake decoration when Mr G and I celebrated our birthdays recently. It’s now a priceless item of kitchen decor.
