In My Kitchen - July 2015


Here's what's happening in my kitchen at the moment...
 



Dark Salted Brown Butter Chocolate:
Because... Dark. Salted .Brown. Butter. Chocolate.
 
 
 
 
Vintage French Café au Lait Bowls:
Because I like to pretend I'm an eccentric French woman and slurp café au lait out of these beautiful bowls.




Macabella Chocolate Macadamia Spread:
 Because you haven't lived until you've eaten half a jar of this stuff off a spoon.
 
 
 
 
Korean Red Pepper Powder:
Because I'm on a mission to make my own Kimchi, so I'm going to need a bucket-load of red pepper powder.
 
 
 
 
Furikaki Wasabi and Hijiki Seaweed: 
Because I'm only truly happy when my pantry is stuffed to over-flowing with pretty packaging and obscure ingredients. 
 
 
 
 
Chinese Claypot: 
Because cold evenings call for hot pots of hotpots.




Chocolate Chunk Chocolate Ginger Cake:
 Because it's school holidays and I'm at home with the kids. (Recipe here.)
 


 Anyway, that's my kitchen for now.

  13. Oh my, that chocolate ginger cake looks tasty! I love how there is ginger ale in the icing! I've bookmarked your recipe for later consumption... for a weekend at least when there aren't treats in the house (I went to the markets today, and bought a bunch of pastry scrolls!) Thanks again Jennifer, Kirsty

  21. I love your Vintage French Café au Lait Bowls Jennifer - I always find myself looking at bowls but have so many already! You know I love my Asian ingredients and will be keeping my eyes out for that pepper powder. I made kimchi & it's easy - you'll be fine :) Beautiful claypot too - where did you get it (if you don't mind me asking?) Can you use it in the oven or only on gas stovetop? You've always got goodies I love in you kitchen #IMK x
