In My Kitchen – February 2014
It’s been a long time since I participated in Celia’s wonderful In My Kitchen series over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial. Since then I’ve had many comings and goings into my kitchen and store cupboards, the majority of course I haven’t documented. Here are a few of my favourite things … which are currently sitting in my kitchen.
A newly purchased block of Willie’s Indonesian Black -180g of solid 100% chocolate. This is a bit of a luxury, but it’s useful and I use it sparingly.
A vase of scented Cornish narcissi, a gift from yesterday’s visitors.
A few quails eggs remaining from this basket, given to me by fellow Cornish food blogger Jane Sarchet over at The Hedge Combers when I visited her earlier this week.
Some jars of blood orange curd I made a few days ago – bloody marvellous, though I say it myself.
An empty bottle of Cornish sparkling perry – drunk yesterday with friends. Or should I say, we drank it yesterday with friends. It was our first bottle of Polgoon Peren, but was so good, I hope it won’t be our last.
A half eaten loaf of a no-knead spelt & rye bread made with my new silicone bread maker.
My favourite Cornish Red side plates sitting in the drying rack, having been used for tea yesterday.
A jar of my mother’s just made Seville orange marmalade.
A Passion 4 Juice – a wipe clean booklet of juice and smoothie recipes that I won from Vanesther’s Family Foodies blogging event over at Bangers & Mash. It arrived in the post a couple of days ago.
Some drinking chocolate from Cornish company Mugz given to me before Christmas, but still awaiting review – oops!
