What a busy time it is at the moment! We have just celebrated the engagement of our son and his beautiful partner. Joyous time indeed and a lot of creating food for the celebration. So in my kitchen is:
Some of the leftovers of the magnificent cake my daughter made for the event. Ready to pack to put in the freezer for later use. It was beautiful and looked amazing as well as tasting sensational. She is VERY talented!I made some vegetable pakora, they looked much better on the serving platter, see my previous post!
I cooked up some VERY spicy tiny sausages and meatballs. These were a great hit.In my kitchen are a few beautiful roses, this one is a week old in the photo and still holding up well. These beautiful ‘Jude the Obsure’ blooms are from a bush our daughter gave us after her wedding. Very precious to me. In my kitchen are 2 heads of broccoli freshly cut waiting to go into our tummies.Sadly, I have to say goodbye to the last of last seasons garlic. This bag was chockers and has lasted really well. Only a couple of weeks till new crop is ready I think. In my kitchen is a leek, broad bean and mushroom risotto made from freshly picked veg. It was beautiful! Some of the broad beans, nearly finished for the season so enjoying them while we can.In my kitchen is a smoked trout. We are so lucky having such an excellent butcher who makes his own small goods and they are sensational. Thanks Wayne from Trafalgar Butcher Shop. Such an easy appetiser, trout, some bread or crackers to serve it on and your done! Another local producer who grow the most amazing organic vegetables with love. Wendy and Tony go out of their way to make sure their produce is first rate and their service is exceptional. Wendy delivered these beautiful lettuce and daikon and some other goodies to me at work. Love shopping that way! It is nice knowing that the food I served for the after party BBQ has been grown with so much love and care. Check out Thorpdale Organics, it’s worth it.
Didn’t get to take a photo of the view from the kitchen window but it’s looking pretty good!
Thanks Celia from Fig Jam & Lime Cordial for giving us this opportunity to see and share kitchens from around the world.
