November 2011 Showcasing In My Kitchen

Celia who blogs over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, has initiated a concept for us to share what is in our kitchens. My In My Kitchen November 2011 is to show 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. I am a huge fan of Jamie Oliver.
