New bowls from Crate and Barrell. I’ve been searching for the right shape for ages
Veggie teen starts another vegan month so this book arrived at the right time. Review to follow shortly
Crisp healthy chips and a whole lot more. Would you like to win one? I’ll let you know how very soon…
It’s still growing season so lots of organic veg from the farmers’ market in my kitchen. Making the most of it as the season will end in 5-6 weeks time.
The recipe for arrabiata in Jamie’s Comfort Food book is now my ‘go to’. Made a huge jar of confit organic local chilli and garlic which is part of this multi-layered chilli explosion.
Prudence keeps on bubbling and giving sourdough love (thanks again Celia – Fig Jam & Lime Cordial)
I chucked a load of chopped parsley into one sourdough loaf and it seems to have worked… sort of. Needs perfecting
Finally got my hands on a spiraliser (Tavola keeps selling out). Need to get acquainted better as this spiral is pretty pathetic!
We’ve had an enormous harvest of tomatoes from the garden so I oven dried some. These were coated in a spicy mixture of pomegranate molasses and sumac – a recipe from Greg Malouf’s new vegetarian book
The last of our bumper crop from the garden. KP has had a permanent grin for the past three weeks
Slightly addicted to this with or without a shot of vodka. Perfect Bloody or Happy Mary (the virgin kind) every time. Order from Limeline here in Dubai
Portobello gin and Fever Tree tonics – a great addition to my gin collection. New arrival of masses of different gins at MMI – hooray
I try to keep my food chemical free so why not my house (and the planet) too. Testing this out from the Change Initiative
Here’s what’s in my kitchen at the beginning of April (take a closer look and read the captions by clicking on an individual image, use the arrows to navigate)
March was wonderful but a bit crazy. I can’t believe that the Emirates Festival of Literature, Art Dubai, Taste of Dubai, Dubai World Cup and Arabian Youth Orchestra were all in one month. And yes I went to all of them plus more.
I turn to my kitchen at times like these for relaxation. We need to eat so I have to cook – it’s a necessary but creative and calming activity.
Have a snoop around many more kitchens through Celia’s monthly event – look for the list in her sidebar.
What’s in your kitchen this April?
