  1. Cute tweezers. I’m not really one to do ‘styling’ with my food but it’s all the rage right now. Love to see what you create with them. I love a good olive oil – It’s my favourite of your #IMK goodies this month

  3. Tweezers are really handy with some food photography, sometimes I can get a bit clumsy trying to lift small items with my fingers. I love a good olive oil too. 🙂

  4. lovely magnets and I am impressed you have bought chef’s tweezers – I don’t think I have the patience or time. The scorpion looks a little scary even without the sting

  5. I love the badges Tandy and cannot remember the last time I tasted guava! I am salivating even though I cannot place the taste, so obviously I must have enjoyed my last experience!

  6. I buy my olive oil in a big can like that. It’s from a family owned olive grove on a Greek island (and the brother lives here). Makes so much difference having good olive oil doesn’t it. Lovely kitchen browse 🙂

  7. Chef’s tweezers remind me of surgical forceps! I have very clumsy fingers and could really use some in my kitchen

  11. I love, love, love guavas and guava juice. If we ever holiday anywhere tropical, I always look for them on the breakfast table. I’ve never thought of using a pizza pan for biscuits. Thanks for the idea. Chef’s tweezers Tandy, you are getting serious!

    Thanks for the tour.

  13. So hard to imagine you’re heading into winter as we gently slide into summer here in NY. I’d love to taste that finishing oil. I bet it’s delicious.

  15. Hi Tandy, great new gadgets in your kitchen, I was once bitten by a scorpion and I was almost paralyzed for a few days, they are awful insects.

  18. That scorpion sucker is definitely a novelty! And if you ever left that juice around Mr NQN he would devour it in about 30 seconds 😀

  20. I confess, I find it hard to believe you get winter in the western cape!!! Anyhow, is olive oil envy a thing? I’m so jealous of that lovely olive oil, would love to drink as-is. And that pizza pan just sounds great right now, I’m a big ruiner of pans as well! They get used and abused for sure. Have a great week Tandy =)

  22. My chef’s tweezers are “borrowed long nose pliers” from Pete’s workshop when required. They are thoroughly cleaned before use though. 🙂
    I would thoroughly enjoy a glass of your guava juice.
    Have a wonderful day Tandy.

  23. I have tried using tweezers as well, but the result came out worse. I think I am really bad when I try to over do it. However, I look at your pictures often to learn a few tricks 🙂
