I'll start! Here in my kitchen:
|resin spoon from Dinosaur Designs|
I just love my new resin spoon. Not cheap but so beautiful. It will look lovely serving up my salads and vegetables this summer. If only I could afford one of their salad bowls. Mr P.! Christmas present?! :=)
|a Food Harvest map|
Not exactly in my kitchen, but appropriate nonetheless. This is a Food Harvest Map, showing places you can pick produce that grows wild around Brisbane. I was absolutely fascinated to see that someone has gone to the trouble of doing this. Selfishly, I see that my fave secret cache of mulberries is not on the map - yet! Not that there were any this year; not a one. Why?!
|non-bleached baking paper|
You may think this odd, but I have been searching for unbleached baking paper for yonks. I emailed the Glad company, who were completely uninterested and just replied that it wasn't one of their products. Grr! But I found that a local appliance retailer near us now sells all sorts of brown baking paper and liners. Yay!
|a Magritte melamine plate|
I bought this at the Art Gallery recently. I just love the colours, and the shape of the apple. It looks irresistible; like you just have to have a big bite. The Belgian painter Magritte was a surrealist artist, and apparently a big influence on Pop art.
|jaboticaba fruit just starting to appear|
We are lucky enough to have this jaboticaba tree growing in our backyard. Not likely to have grown there by accident so I guess the previous owners planted it out. It is from South America, and has the unusual habit of fruiting directly onto the trunk of the tree. Hopefully we will have a good crop this year and I can try to make jam again. It often turns out like rubber, due to the high level of pectin in the dark skin. Like something that you can use for playing tennis:=)
|another 'local' olive oil|
This oil is from Jugiong, New South Wales. I like to buy produce from the Long Track Pantry now and then, as they make their own preserves in-house.
|relish and preserved lemons|
Fabulous red onion relish and preserved lemons. You know how when you buy preserved lemons - say from Italy - they are so overdone, and obviously sitting around for so long, that they have turned to mush? Well these are NOT like that. They are fresh and tangy. Perfect with fish and salads and couscous.
Well there you have it, my friends. Another monthly IMK wrap-up. Looking forward to seeing yours too. I've extended the deadline for an extra 15 hours to give overseas bloggers a bit more time to get their post in!
