And here in my kitchen is:
|interesting look into the life of a well-known cookbook editor|
She is/was known for saving Anne Frank's Diary from an editor's slush pile. And introducing Julia Child's cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking to US cooks. Being a huge reader myself, I was fascinated with this look into the editor's world.
I love Japanese everything! And at least I have a good idea what this one is, due to the English label :=)
|Japanese chocolate I think; maybe Korean?|
Bought this in Melbourne on our short break. Nope, simply not possible to resist a Japanese/Korean grocery store.
Mr P. and I love rice so this is going to be a treat on our ricy dishes. I love the way that Japanese foods seem to incorporate fish into everything - even their condiments and my fave rice crackers. Dried bonito rules!
|BB8- kitchen timer|
I love BB8 - who doesn't? This is a very cute timer whose head spins before beeping Star Wars music at you.
|BB8 mug and lid|
I came upon this in a gorgeous tea shop in the outer hills of Melbourne. There you will find gloriously cute tea pots and mugs and wonderful chocolate and tea and bits and bobs. A veritable tea wonderland.
|Kiwi cook Chelsea Winter|
Chelsea won New Zealand Masterchef a few years ago, and has published a cookbook every year since. Five already! I'm looking forward to trying out some of her recipes soon. Wait for it, wait for it ... as Barney used to say. (What do you mean, you've never watched How I Met Your Mother?)
|a tin of honey from our Tassie friends|
Our Tasmanian friends came up at Christmas, bringing goodies for us. Beautiful, strongly flavoured honey made by Tassie bees. Go the bees!
|a gift from my cousin|
A gorgeous little bowl which matches our blue and white kitchen. Thanks, coz.
|a great quote from Edith Head, inimitable Hollywood costume designer|
While down in Melbourne, we took a drive out to Bendigo. This is a beautiful old town, full of historical buildings from the gold mining era of the 1850s. We headed to the well-respected Art Gallery which was holding an Edith Head exhibition. She was a Hollywood costume designer for many years, and won 8 Oscars for her work. Brilliant stuff, in a time when it wasn't so normal for women to work outside the home.
|a gift from hubby for Christmas|
I just love this one, now sitting on my kitchen wall. It is called "the Nameless Child", by Sherry McCourt. She uses vintage materials like old maps and books and turns them into beautiful paintings. This one was based on a schoolgirl in a 1940s school photo. Check Sherry out on Facebook. (the artist, not me:=) )
And that I think is that for this month's IMK post. Looking forward to catching up with you all! Please join in, and show us all the fab things you have in your kitchen.
