Fun question. That I cannot live without ...? My cast iron griddle and skillets that Tim bought me. And then the rolling pin that I got from my Mamam (Hungarian grandma, pronounced Mumum). It's an old-style pin, no handles and I love it. All absolute must haves in my kitchen.
What is a poach pod?
hallo!hope this link works:http://www.lakeland.co.uk/poachpod!REG/F/product/12116I think it's a US company that makes them. a bit of a cheat, but no messed up pans.
I always thought the professionals made such wonderful neat poached eggs, while mine are always a mess - then I saw on a tv show that the chefs trim the eggs to make them all perfect-shaped
Oohhhh, look at that. Those are neat. Also neat about the trimming. Very cool. Another kitchen gadget I would not want to live without is my camera. Though that probably doesn't count.
This is claudia, posting this way until I get added as a team member. I agree re. the camera!
Hi Claudia. So there's two of you here. Fantastic fun. Nice to meet you. Happy Eating and thanks for joining my blog.
A set of really good knives.
ooh what make knives do you have - eastern or western style?I went on a knives' skills course, and went and got myself a chef's knife. I am not very good at doing fine dicing, as I am way too scared to chop with such a big knife towards myself!maybe one day, til then, very pleased with the effect- claudia
and I must not forget the electronic scales (scarily accurate).I made sables and a marble cake, but no photos, as I wolfed these down! ha ha
Just popped in to see what you two were up to, today. Hope you're eating yummy things and having a good day.
hallo!hope you are well, and you had a good weekendI was going to make another marble cake, but as I went out and got a gingerbread man, I will make it later this week, and hopefuly photograph it before I eat the whole thing (again).I made some salmon with a bit of white wine, nam pla and lime juice and zest. This was a total experiment, but worked well (lemon and white wine is good for fish, too). It is interesting to use lime instead of lemon, plus the green zest makes great decorations.
