May 2013 Showcasing In My Kitchen

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

Is a copy of James’s Desserts which I was sent to review.

in my kitchen ….

are two boxes of nandi chocolates, a decadent selection of pralines handmade by Ezulwini Chocolat. Nontwenhle Mchunu is the face behind this South African brand.

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.

in my kitchen ….

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.

in my kitchen ….

is a bottle of wine launched by a local celebrity. This was sent to me with a notebook. 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!

in my kitchen ….

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.
