Welcome to another little tour of my kitchen.
Firstly, some foodie reading material. This enormous CWA cookbook was a gift and it is a wonderful source of simple yet delicious recipes. The photography has a distinctly Australian style and most of the recipes require simple ingredients.
A lot of bloggers have already written about Kinfolk magazine which is really more like a book. I purchased my copy online through Pulp and it was so delightfully packaged in this red polka dot paper I did not want to unwrap it. If you love photography and food Kinfolk is full of inspiration. The dreamy pages are printed on heavy paper and with no advertising it feels quite special.
Sadly, this is my last tray of poached quinces for the season.
As the weather cools my basil is fading fast, my last batch of chunky pesto until next summer.
Home made pasta made to serve with a duck ragu. Every time I make pasta I wonder why I don’t do it more often. Apart from bread, it is one of the simplest yet most rewarding things to make from scratch. Photography thanks to Annabelle (5).
My husband Terry cooked our interpretation of Billy Kwong’s Duck with Citrus Sauce for Mother’s Day in the camp oven. Actually it wasn’t strictly in our kitchen, but at our campfire area. Served with steamed greens from the garden it was a memorable meal cooked with love in the great outdoors.
A little batch of simple apricot jam tarts made with some pastry scraps. These take me back to my childhood. They were one of Mum’s standard treats always made with pastry off cuts from something else, such as a meat pie.
What have you cooked this month?
