Welcome to another tour of my kitchen.
I recently had a good reason to scrub my kitchen from head to toe and while it was looking so shiny I took some photos. Please note this is the uncluttered, child free version of my kitchen. In reality, it looks like this perhaps once or twice a year.
Apples from my garden. This is not exactly a bumper crop but I don't think I have ever been so excited about picking fruit. Growing vegetables is certainly rewarding but picking home grown fruit has taken my love of growing food to a whole new level.
I am continually amazed at just how adaptable my standard white sourdough recipe is. Over the years as I have gained more bread making confidence I have started to turn this dependable dough into several different forms of bread. Bubbly, crisp pizza bases are a favourite. Whenever I make bread these days I freeze several balls of dough to have on hand whenever the need for pizza arises. Impressively, once thawed the dough literally bounces back to life.
Sourdough grissini topped with sea salt and rosemary has been a recent bread experiment. These crunchy sticks are the perfect match for a cold beer and some chunky dip.
I have been dreaming of pesto bread ever since fellow blogger and baker Mel shared a photo of her pesto bread on Twitter. Inspired by Mel, I created these sourdough scrolls filled with homemade basil pesto. The pesto turned a little brown in the cooking process but it did not lose that distinctive pesto taste.
This delicate but pungent little leaf is from my curry tree. I have not cooked a lot with it yet, but it has an incredible aroma. Do you have any cooking suggestions for curry leaves?
