In my kitchen…

…are lobster picks! I found them at Chefs’ Warehouse for $1.50 each…

I loved the embossing, although our lobsters don’t have claws…

Here’s a photo of the Eastern Australian Rock Lobster for Karen

In my kitchen…

…are the results of our raspberry liqueur experiment.  We combined frozen raspberries with vodka, brandy and sugar and left it to mature for three months.  Although it lacks the complexity of our President plum brandy, it’s a delicious tipple nonetheless…

In my kitchen…

…are tins of chestnut puree, picked up at half price from a deli in the city. I’m hoping to make Sally’s chocolate and chestnut terrine with them…

In my kitchen…

…are funky tea infusers, a gift from the lovely Lorraine…

They’ve been getting up to all sorts of mischief…

In my kitchen…

…is a bowl of ripening sourdough starter.  See all the bubbles breaking the surface? That’s a good thing…

In my kitchen…

…is a very old Royal Worcester Evesham Gold casserole pot – a wedding gift from Auntie Anna. We’ve used it until the gold is chipping off…

In my kitchen…

…are tonka beans! I haven’t tried using them yet – any suggestions?  Pete has requested tonka-bean flavoured shortbread cookies…

In my kitchen…

…is an infrared thermometer. I bought it on a whim last year with my tax return.  At the time I wasn’t sure what we’d do with it, but it’s turned out to be a frequently used tool in our kitchen.

It measures the temperature remotely – you aim the red laser pointer at a hot surface and click the button.  We use it for taking the temperature of hot pans before frying and a variety of other tasks, although it only measures surface temperature, so I can’t use it for chocolate tempering…

In my kitchen…

…is chocolate cake for Luca’s birthday!  It was whipped up in the food processor using our chocolate pound cake recipe
