Also please check out At My Tradition and feel free to join in and share your tradition for this time of year with us. This is my offering.
In my kitchen....
....is the magically aroma of Christmas.
The spices from last month's in my kitchen have been bagged up or put into jars ready for whenever you need an emergency dose of Christmas. They will be a table gift on Christmas day.
In my kitchen....
....is the answer to all the purple cauliflower questions.
- The flavour is the same
- The colour fades a little with cooking but this variety did not turn white when cooked
- Blanching it and tossing into an acidy vinaigrette turns it hot pink!!
- Thinking back to my Science of Gastronomy course adding bi carb soda would turn it blue...yum
I left it a bit too long before picking so it looked a bit like coral
It doesn't look the most appetising cauliflower cheese but I loved it.
Delicious as a salad with broadbeans too
In my kitchen/garden.....
....are small pots of herbs growing to be a gift for each of my guests at Christmas. I have planted, basil, thyme and parsley seeds which will then get a bow added before the big day. It doesn't look like it in the picture but there are little green leaves sprouting so I think we will be on track in another 3 weeks.....worse case scenario I have a nursery up the road for any emergency lack of growth lol
In my Kitchen.....
....is an abundance of Christmas baking which I will eventually get to documenting the recipes for, maybe I'm just really really prepared for next year!
They come in regular and xtra large...
In my kitchen.....
.....is a note book of all my baking plans which is totally inspired by the bake off pictures, I just wish I could get down on paper the images in my head.
Thanks AB, you have to do everything around here!
