Section 28 Artisan Cheese

15/04/2016 | By

South Australia has another feather in our cheese-making cap with the passion and skills of Kym Masters at Section 28 Artisan Cheese.

Given that Kym Masters, Section 28 cheese maker, has his premises based just ten minutes up the road from me in the Adelaide Hills you’d think that I’d have been on his doorstep and sticking my nose into what he’s doing there ages ago, wouldn’t you?

In My Kitchen March 2016

04/03/2016 | By

It’s time for In My Kitchen once again – the monthly roundup that takes a peek at my current kitchen treasures.

Fresh tomatoes In My Kitchen

I can’t say I’m sorry that it’s March and already the beginning of autumn. I’m not loving the hot weather (and, to be fair, it hasn’t shown us a lot of love) so I’ll be happy to welcome the cooler weather. Here’s what’s happening in my kitchen this month, for the full round-up do head over to Maureen’s blog The Orgasmic Chef.

I’m happy to report that I’ve outsmarted my dogs this year and managed to position the tomato plants in an area they can’t reach to graze upon them. I only planted two bushes – a miniature roma and a slightly larger version of a cherry tomato – but they’ve gone gangbusters. We’ve eaten quite a lot of tomato salads and I semi-dried a big batch of them and packed them in olive oil, saving them for later in the year. I still have more to use up and can see a simple tomato sugo in my future.

fresh home-laid eggs In My Kitchen

My new flock of chickens have now hit their straps and the four of them are laying an egg a day, most days. It is such a joy to have our own eggs again – and enough to share with friends too.

In My Kitchen, new baking toys

I was in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago and, during a wander through the Victoria Markets, found a new bakeware store. You’d think after all my years on this planet that I’d have enough baking toys, but apparently not. My heart leapt when I saw these off-set spatulas (I know – sad, isn’t it?) and I bought some bulk muffin cases and a couple of silicon mats for my daughter, another baking tragic.

February SALife magazine In My Kitchen

I’m terrifically proud to have the current edition of the respected SALife Magazine in my kitchen this month. Inside the February issue is my first ever article for the magazine, with the next to be found in the March edition (out soon). There are more to follow later in the year and I’m thrilled to bits about it.

It’s News To Me!

Special Delivery cookbook, news to me

It’s time for another round-up of news snippets and podcast in It’s News To Me.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have no idea where January went. The rate at which time passes these days is dizzying – or perhaps that’s just because I’m getting old and my balance isn’t what it was?
