|another cookbook to try out plus Tassie oil and assorted yummies|
|I love this Tassie peanut butter, and my new Spode plate!|
|Had never heard of lychee balsamic before!|
another cute primary school cookbook collection-love it!
I really love these wonderful community cookbooks. It is like having your mum or grandmum in your kitchen giving you her recipes and advice. Something very heart-warming about them. You can see a few Tasmanian items here; sadly not because I have been there lately but due to me ordering from Bruny Island Cheese Co. They have such gorgeous stuff. And they even mail cheese to hot and humid Queensland!
The peanut butter is seriously good eating. Nutty and full of flavour; the roasting obviously gives it an extra flavour boost. I had to try the cultured butter as I had heard good things. To be honest, it didn't thrill me. It seemed to have a really odd tang to it. I have tried other cultured butters and really enjoyed them so I am not sure why this one didn't appeal.
You can see I bought Murray River salt and a hand-picked Tassie salt. Silly me forgetting I had also recently bought some Maldon sea salt. Oh well, I am prepared for the next 12 months! I bought some very garlicky and wonderful aioli at the Good Food & Wine Show. I get annoyed when they whimp out on the garlic, so this was a delightful surprise. What haven't I mentioned? Oh yes- the vanilla bean paste. Can't wait to try that one. I do make my own vanilla extract but the paste just has that little bit of extra oomph.
Well, hope to see you all at Celia's (virtual) place this month. It is such a fun event, and I look forward to sharing everybody's kitchen each and every month. See you there!
