In My Kitchen August 2014

I am once again joining in with Celia from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, sharing what is in my kitchen with other friendly food bloggers.  Join in- it is a lot of fun!


this is an exquisite little olive pot a friend made for me


a serpentine llama I bought in a Peruvian shop
in Warwick (QLD)! at the Jumpers and Jazz festival in July


a gorgeous silver dessert/cake fork that I found
 in a quaint little shop run by a very old man


on the left is the lemon-infused EVOO that
 I recently bottled after letting it infuse for about 5 weeks.
 On the right is sumac that I purchased
down in Kingscliff when having a few days away


a beautiful spatula from Paris that
 my cousin brought back recently for me


can't wait to read this one!


and last but not least, this is my kitchen!
Well a corner of it anyway!
the space filled with books
is meant to be for a microwave
 but I love my books too much so
the microwave went downstairs

    1. thanks lisa. yes she is a great potter and makes lots of lovely stuff. my kitchen is full of it.
      i am afraid the microwave just didn't cut it for me, taking up so much room so it really had to be downgraded to the downstairs kitchenette:)

  10. Sherry - I have an almost identical cake fork that I bought 2nd hand but I can tell that yours is in better condition as a lot of the plate has worn off mine. Still, it gets plenty of use. I love the way you have styled this post via the photos and captions. Clever you! xx

    1. thanks for your kind comments fiona. i love this little fork- it is so sweet and i thought remarkably cheap considering i have paid much more for similar things in other shops. maybe you have been there? it is an antique shop full of silver and other things on Nudgee rd.

  15. Sherry, that's a marvelous use for 'microwave' space -- I like your idea better than the original intent! Your French spatula and beautiful serving fork will make 'dishing up' a pleasure, and ohhhhh that lil' olive pot... love it! Thanks for sharing peeks of your cookbook collection, too.
