April 2013 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I am not sure where March raced away to! It is Easter, and today (1st April 2013) I am going to try and stay off line for the entire day – this could be quite a challenge. In the meantime, I have a few things from my kitchen to share with you!

in my kitchen ….

Are loaves of bread made from Cordelia. Celia sent me some sourdough starter in the post. The dodgy looking white powder did not garner a second look from customs and as our postal service is on strike in Johannesburg the envelope was not even franked. Funnily enough, despite the strike the envelope was at me within a week of being posted. Celia asked me to name my starter and I came up with the name using Celia’s own name and her blog name (Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for those of you who don’t know her). Cordelia is the daughter of Priscilla and to see more of her siblings, take a look here. For anyone who lives close to me: if you would like to try sourdough please let me know. I have enough starter to share!

is my new favourite toy! This egg topper has been on my wish list for some time now. My sister and I were shopping in Sandton City and she insisted I go into a shop there to take a look at the Kitchen Aid attachments, and while I was browsing I found this!

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I are busy building a house which is an adventure all in itself. Each year we visit a new place overseas to experience the food of the area. Follow along on our adventures!

  • I don't know where the last 2 month desapeared. On tuesday I fly back Europe after 2 months. Your freash bread could east the pain ;)

  • Nice to meet Cordelia! I just took my starter out to bake tomorrow. Fingers crossed that it looks as good as yours! :D

    • I am looking forward to reading what you come up with - I have some rye proving today :)

  • I'm always amazed at how neat neat your refrigerator is...mine is always stuffed.

    • Hi Glenda, you place the egg into an egg cup – narrow side up – and then place the egg topper on to the egg. The round knob lifts up and you gently drop it down, until it cracks the egg the whole way around. You then remove the top of the shell gently, save the egg and wash out the shell to use. You can see the end result here: http://tandysinclair.com/honey-liqueur-sabayon-recipe/

  • That bread looks wonderful, Tandy. White powder in the post? Better not try sending that to America. :) I see that you have lots of eggs in your fridge to try out your topper on. :)

    • We go through a LOT of eggs AD - and I have tried using the egg topper on my soft boiled eggs as well :)

  • Ooh, I have to look out for an egg topper - Pete would LOVE one of these. Now, just to find one in small PE.
    Have a super week ahead Tandy.
