Need I say it? The month flew past. It is May 2013 and time again for In My Kitchen.

is a bottle of jam I received as a gift from Grootbos when we stayed there. I have not yet tried it, but if it is anything like what we had for breakfast then I know it is good. The jams are made by a group of people upskilled by Grootbos’s social awareness program.

is my signed copy of Confessions of a Hungry Woman. Sam is a great friend and I cannot wait to start reading this book. I have Gordon Ramsay’s book next to my bed at present and I need to set some time aside to start reading all the cookbooks waiting for me.

is a bottle of wine launched by a local celebrity. This was sent to me with a note book. I am so excited about it, as this gives me two books to work in which means I no longer need bits of paper in my kitchen which can get lost!

is a bread bin! I have never really needed one before but since Celia sent me Cordelia I have been baking up a storm of sourdough loaves. This past weekend saw me making ciabatta, a sourdough loaf and a sourdough cake!

are two bottles of wine I received as part of a media day at Groot Constantia. I spent a lovely albeit wet afternoon at the estate and I look forward to sharing a part of my visit with you.

  1. I’m not surprised you need a bread bin if you have been tempted to the dark side of bread making! It’s nice to know you are enjoying it.

  2. Tandy, what a fabulous cover on your friend Sam’s book! It almost promises just from the cover alone to be a fun read! 🙂 LOVE that you’ve been baking so much sourdough that you had to buy a bread bin! xx

    1. I cannot wait to start reading her book! And I was sure you would appreciate my bread bin. Third loaf of the day in the oven as I type 🙂

  3. What a delicious collection of goodies in your kitchen, Tandy. The dessert book looks so interesting and I love your bread bin. Sourdough bread is my favourite, and we always buy it when in the USA. Love the title of Sam Woolidge’s book. 🙂 Happy weekend to you.
