Be inspired by ♥ In My Kitchen November 2011

Celia who blogs over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, has initiated a concept for us to share what is in our kitchens. Welcome to what was new in my kitchen in October:

I am starting with a picture of the inside of my fridge. This is a great way to see if we pack our fridges full of things that end up being thrown away or not. You can see a green bag in the one drawer. It was full of lemons from a friend’s tree – it still has some in them – lucky me 🙂

This is a photograph of a lovely mustard pot from France and inside is mustard made with Guinness and the recipe is from Celia’s blog. I divided her recipe by 5 as that is how many mustard seeds I had – and it has made this pot plus another small jar!

Next is a jar of masala made for me by my friend Ishay – this was in exchange for a jar of

my ras-el-hanout.

I went to the launch of Cape Winelands Cuisine and came home with these recipe cards – I will make each dish and blog about them (probably next year the way this year is rushing by)

This is my most proud moment of the month – I am featured as the blog star in the magazine – I would love each and every one of you to buy one but as that is not possible I will upload the interview on my about page next month.

I won this fantastic recipe book by entering the yuppiechef competition with my lamb shanks

  1. Congratulations!
    I’m impressed by your inclusion in the article, the lamb shank and well, of course, the tidy refrigerator. I would Never show mine. I have too many condiments and leftover containers in there.
