What did October 2017 hold for you? Dave and I were lucky enough to travel overseas. That included visiting with family and friends, and experiencing a lot of whisky tasting. It also meant scheduling posts well in advance.
Bread Dough Slasher
I cannot lay claim to having come up with this idea myself. I discovered this method when I attended the Paul Hollywood function. It is so simple, so cheap, and so effective. Just be careful not to cut yourself on the extremely sharp edge of the razor blade. The correct term for this is a ‘lame’.
My friend Erica gave me this for my birthday. It is made by Bakgat Pottery. Bakgat is South African slang and means great; good; fine or excellent. I have filled this salt mine with smoked salt.
I interviewed Chanel Marais and Nick Perfect on my blog and from that Chanel contacted me about showcasing their Salty Flames products. They sent me a gift pack of the most amazing smoked products, including garlic, olive oil, salt and olives. I made good use of the products in my Smokey Halloumi Salad and we are devouring jars and jars of the olives. They have recently built a food truck and you can hire it out for events. Look out for their products at Healey’s.
School Recipe Book
My mom has been clearing out her desk and found my school recipe book. She sent it to me and my aim is to make all the recipes in it. So far I have made olive oil scones for International Scone Week 2017.
October 2017 FOMO Box
This month’s box offered way more value for money that last month. It was waiting for me when we got back from overseas. The pasta flour was perfect timing as I was just about to order some. I will be road testing the ravioli roller this weekend, and saving the prosecco for summer.
Once again I am linking up with Sherry to showcase what was new in my kitchen in October 2017.
