  1. Hi Tandy, I’d be interested in knowing how you like the dishwasher. Our own is slowly giving up the ghost. We’ll need a new one soon.

    • HI Liz, I love my dishwasher and it gets used every day! My step son recently got a SMEG and that seems to be fantastic as well. Not sure what makes you get there but I hope you find something that works for you 🙂

  2. Hi Tandy! Funny to hear you mention Hermanos – I have CT friends who are looking for a property there! Jerusalem is wonderful! The meatballs with favas is excellent and their Ba’harat spice recipe for them is wonderful with so many other things too – I make up double the recipe to that I have some some on hand when I need it. Your dishwasher sounds great. I now know why the lower racks flip down and am very excited to try them out!! ( can you tell I didn’t read the instruction manual?) Ours was new with the property so I didn’t have to do any research on them…That cheese sounds fantastic – I am visiting CT in February so will look out for it. And those eggs – ooof! Wondeful in pasta – I am sure your guests enjoyed the dish!!

    • I really have to get stuck into the book soon! I also did not read the manual – my old dishwasher had that feature which is so clever. Hope you have a super visit to SA and if there is anything you need to know, please send me an email 🙂

  4. You have a lot of amazing wonderful things in your kitchen this month! Congratulations on your new dishwasher – nothing like properly cleaned dishes 🙂 I just love your duck eggs & duck egg pasta sounds divine. I’ve never tried duck eggs before – can’t wait for the day to try them. Hope your holiday in France was amazing! Thank you for sharing IMK – see you next month

  5. Hi Tandy,
    I love duck eggs and was lucky enough to pick some up at a local market recently.
    Duck eggs make beautiful sponge cakes!

  6. Oh my, that dishwasher is lovely! I am envious right now because our dishwasher has been out of commission for two years (it broke itself) and we have yet to decide on whether we want to replace it or not. I suppose we don’t need it that badly, but having one with the rack for pots and pans and a separate cutlery box would be nice for the next one! I enjoy Jerusalem so much and am excited for you to get to cook all the wonderful recipes from that cookbook. One of my favorite recipes is the meatballs with fava beans. Delicious!

  10. Tandy, what a wonderful post! A new dishwasher is great news – ours broke as well a few weeks ago and we had it fixed – I don’t think I could go back to handwashing dishes now either! I adore raspberry vinegar in rocket salad, and I still don’t have a copy of Jerusalem – will check out the Kindle version. Welcome home! 🙂

    • I am going to go out and get some rocket to try my vinegar with. So lucky you could have your dishwasher fixed. Must say I like the selection you have in Australia! Hope you can get the book on kindle 🙂

  15. Hiya Tandy… always such interesting things in your kitchen! Love Ottolenghi and his books! Peter and I are going to Sydney for one of his lunch events this month! I have yet to taste duck eggs, but aren’t you lucky having such good access to fresh ones! Happy cooking.

  16. everything looks lovely in your kitchen Tandy. it seems that Ottolenghi is flavour of the month this month:) He is coming to Brisbane in Oct.and I am just trying to decide if i can afford the astronomical amount of money they want to have dinner and a talk by him.! Hope France was/is great.

  17. Our dishwasher was getting very temperamental when we sold our house in SA, so we gave it away. Hope it’s still going. 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever had duck eggs. Do they taste very different?

  18. So many wonderful things in your kitchen Tandy. Your new diswasher looks fabulous. I also have a Bosch but nothing as fancy and smart as yours. I would not survive without mine even when Pete is away and I am on my own.
    Have a wonderful October.

  20. Those croissants look yummy, I love croissants, must be the butter side of me. But like you said, looking at store bought ingredients leaves something to be desired. Love them with scrambled eggs (never tried duck eggs before) and a little cheddar and maybe a slice of bacon of two. Nice dishwasher!!! Hope you’re enjoying you trip to France and hope you have a save return home today. Looking forward to learning something new from you =)

  21. G’day Welcome back from France Tandy!
    I too love and maybe is an obsession with vinegars, but sometimes I simply don’t know how or what to do with them, so will look forward to your pav!
    Thanks for this month’s kitchen view too!
    Cheers! Joanne

  24. Another fabulous post Tandy! I love the notebook you received – my other notebook is a blog. We bought a new dishwasher earlier this year – its way of telling us it had to be replaced was by shorting out all the power in our house. It took me way to long to work out it was the dishwasher! And in Jerusalem make sure you make 5x the spice mix on p211 – it’s great on chicken and in burgers as well as on lamb, and the turkey burgers on p200 are easy and divine, with or without the sumac sauce.
