Hi everyone, I have accumulated these goodies over the last week or so and thought I'd show you some of my super cute finds.
How adorable are these cakey chopsticks?
I found this box of fortune cookies at a local oriental food shop, I think I will save them for a theme night.
I've always loved fortune cookies, my mum used to buy them for us when we were little.
I have had my eye on this next one for a while now and I just couldn't resist any longer...
French Toast anyone?
I saved the best for last of course, I couldn't contain my excitement when I found this Strawberry and Vanilla Honey in a local french patisserie, I haven't tried it yet but think I will spread lashings of the stuff on my next breakfast croissant.
So that's all for foodie finds for now so lets talk Nigella's new book!
Nigella Lawson, Kitchen - Recipes From The Heart Of The Home is released on September 2nd and I cannot wait! I love Nigella's books, I find her recipes are always brilliant, her food is always scrumptious and she is a goddess with cake.
Here is the product description as found on Amazon:
A big, compendious, comfortable, informative and utterly engaging book, "Kitchen" brings us feel-good food for cooks and eaters, whether Express-style and exotic-easy during the week, or leisurely and luxuriating (in the spirit of How to be a Domestic Goddess and Feast) at weekends or for occasions. Divided into two parts - Kitchen Quandaries and Kitchen Comforts - Nigella gives us the wherewithal to tackle any situation and satisfy all nourishment needs. But real cooking is often about leftovers, too, so here one recipe can lead to another...from ham hocks to pea soup and pasties, from chicken to Chinatown salad. This isn't just about being thrifty but about demonstrating how recipes come about, and giving new inspiration for last-minute meals and souped-up store cupboard suppers. As well as offering the reader a mouthwatering array of new recipes, both comforting and exciting - from clams with chorizo to Guinness gingerbread, from Asian braised beef to flourless chocolate lime cake, from Pasta alla Genovese to Venetian carrot cake - Nigella rounds up her kitchen kit must-haves (telling us, too, what equipment we don't need) and highlights individual ingredients - both basic essentials and modern-day life-savers. But above all, she reminds the reader how much pleasure there is to be had in real food, and in reclaiming the traditional rhythms of the kitchen, as she cooks to the beat of the heart of the home, creating simple recipes to make life less complicated.
Venetian carrot cake!!! Yum!
Sounds great doesn't it? I think I may have to pre-order this bad boy.
I wish Jamie Oliver would do a Christmas book, I love Nigella's and Jamie's Christmas on TV was fantastic.
