In My Kitchen. Golly how did it get to be November?

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:

10424268_1563188050563163_5140644749713191810_n 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!IMG_6254I made some vegetable pakora, they looked much better on the serving platter, see my previous post!IMG_6185

Cauliflower pakora

I cooked up some VERY spicy tiny sausages and meatballs. These were a great hit.IMG_6179In my kitchen are a few beautiful roses, this one is  a week old in the photo and still holding up well.IMG_6186 These beautiful ‘Jude the Obsure’ blooms are from a bush our daughter gave us after her wedding. Very precious to me.IMG_6206 In my kitchen are 2 heads of broccoli freshly cut waiting to go into our tummies.IMG_6230Sadly, 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.IMG_6233 In my kitchen is a leek, broad bean and mushroom risotto made from freshly picked veg. It was beautiful!IMG_6237 Some of the broad beans, nearly finished for the season so enjoying them while we can.IMG_6248In 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!IMG_6257 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.IMG_6260

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.

  1. What wonderful things are happening in your kitchen this month, ATMT! It would appear that both you and your daughter are talented in equal measure!

  2. I love smoked trout but it is really difficult to find a good local supplier. Lucky you.
    You have some beautiful produce there. We didn’t manage to get garlic or broad beans in this season, so I am kicking myself and looking on enviously. What are your plans for the daikon?

      Hi, thanks for your lovely comments! We are so lucky to have such a great butcher. Don’t use much meat but when I do I want it to be the best. His small goods are terrific! Daikon will go in a carrot and daikon salad I found a recipe for which I will tweak 🙂

    The cake your daughter made is absolutely gorgeous! All that fresh produce also looks wonderful, I am jealous. We are now in autumn and the growing season is coming to an end. Thanks for sharing a view into your kitchen.

    Wow. Such yumminess in your kitchen this month! That cake looks just scrumptious… and I’m loving the detail you’ve captured in that red rose.

    Your risotto looks amazing and has me drooling just a little bit – as do those pakoras.

    That nicely smoked trout is appealing. Shame I’ll miss the Thorpdale Organics at the markets- I am heading down your way soon, but we travel throigh the area mid week . I am also down to my last garlics- there will be a gap!

  9. So much gorgeous home grown veg! Our broccoli is finished now, but I’ve just bought new season garlic from the fruit shop, so I don’t think it will be long until you have more. I think I need garden risotto for breakfast! And can I just say..your daughter is a genius! That cake is magnificent!
