Be inspired by ♥ In My Kitchen – June 2012

Please join Celia, who blogs over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, by sharing what is in your kitchen with us!

There is no photograph of what was in my fridge on the first, as we were in Scotland! We had an awesome holiday and hopefully in a few weeks time I will be able to share our experiences with you.

In my kitchen …..

Is some Patum Peperium, a new product for me, but something Dave is very familiar with. We bought two home with us from Scotland. One for our fridge, and the other for Dave’s fishing friend.

In my kitchen …..

(well, in my garden) are some carrot seeds. I am finally able to start planting in our bottom garden and so I have started with carrots.

Is my new recipe book full of Italian delights! I have already tried two recipes from this and will start sharing with you soon.

In my kitchen …

Is this amazing seasoning from Scotland that has the most amazing vibrant colours. I am going to create a special dish with it when I have caught up (going on holiday does that to you, leaves you far behind in your work and I am going away again this month).

In my kitchen …

Is a small cooler bag. I have a square one from Marks & Spencer and it travels with us all over the world. This size is perfect for the car to keep lunches cold.

In my kitchen …

I found Nigella seeds in Scotland and so I had to buy them as I have not seen them here. My curry cook book is about to make an appearance again.

In my kitchen …

Is a cooler block – this kept our langoustines cold during an entire day of being in the car! It was a gift from the owner of Relish on the Isle of Skye as she knew we were travelling back to Ballatar.

    • I think from what Usha said above, it may be because our Indian food here is more Malay based?

  6. Tandy, this is the best part about visiting each other’s kitchens! Everyone has something different, new, exotic and exciting. Love the sound of the Patum Peperium and the Scottish flowers! Awesome. I agree with Celia, Giorgio is rather dishy! LOL.

  8. I have such a crush on Giorgio. 😉 Isn’t he handsome? Wonderful stuff in your kitchen, Tandy, could you please open the Patum Peperium so we could have a look inside? I’m intrigued…

    And the colours in that seasoning really does look like flowers! The carrots look great – we tried growing coloured ones once, but with mixed results – I do remember really liking the purple ones though! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your kitchen with us, Tandy! 🙂

    • hello! He is very dishy 🙂 I will take a photo for you of the PP this weekend. I am hoping the carrots actually grow as so far I have not had much luck with my vegetable gardening other than the beans that the tortoise ate 🙂

  10. Lots of lovely things this month! My grandfather used to love Patum Peperium but as I child I never “got” it – I´d probably love it now. And you´ve reminded me to put Nigella seeds on my shopping list for when I go to London!

  13. Hmmm, I think no pics from me. The new washing machine is still in the middle of it, I need to do stuff with the plug to get the cord threaded through the hole in the work surface. As I have eaten out every night this week food I’d a bit scarce.

    For a second I thought nigella seeds were from the kitchen goddess – lol
