Posts Tagged ‘coral rice’

In my kitchen…

…are gifts from my lovely friends and fellow bloggers, Deb of Bagni di Lucca and Roz of Taste Travel.  Deb sewed this beautiful bag for me (it’s her own design, and she even matched the card to it!) and Roz sent me her vintage Römertopf cookbook…

In my kitchen…

…are homemade marshmallows, and cranberry and toasted almond rocky road, made with the aforementioned marshmallows and Callebaut 811 chocolate…

In my kitchen…

…are brochures from a new installation at the Art Gallery of NSW.  The terracotta warriors were created over 2000 years ago under the realm of China’s first emperor.  For anyone in or visiting Sydney in the next couple of months, the exhibition will be on display until March 13 and is well worth a visit…

In my kitchen…

…are a couple of bulbs of roasted garlic – the large one is from Di and Ian, and the little one was grown in our backyard.  After this photo was taken, the pulp was squeezed out into a bowl, mixed with a little salt and covered with oil – the roasting turned the garlic mild and mellow, perfect for smearing on toast and meats (thanks to clever Joanna for this wonderful suggestion!)…

In my kitchen…

…is a stick of butter, one of two made from more than half a litre of old heavy cream leftover from Christmas…

In my kitchen…

…is a box of golden chocolate chip cookies, baked for me by Big Boy’s best mate Tim. He dropped them over, still warm from the oven, so I’ve laid them out on a rack to cool.  I can’t tell you how happy I was to receive these!

In my kitchen…

…are jars of Pete’s latest jams – cherry and strawberry, and mango and lilly pilly…

In my kitchen…

…are treasures from our first visit to Alfalfa House in Enmore. Below are coral rice and purple jasmine rice, both from Thailand, organic peppermint tea from Egypt…

…organic maple syrup from Canada and organic rapadura sugar from Columbia. The rapadura is amazingly flavoured – it’s made from dehyrated unrefined sugar cane juice…
