September is obedient; she has arrived bringing Spring in her basket. I am overjoyed; yesterday I was in my winter woolies and this morning I am ready to take my walk to the greengrocer in a Tshirt and sandals.
Welcome, dear September, for Celia’s monthly peek into my kitchen:
Kitchen corner of the month: Framed antique spoons, my Sabrage sword, my French bread boards, my Indonesian clown miniature spice cupboard and my basket of wine magazines.
A beautiful tin of vanilla sugar; a gift from Tandy and a precious addition to my collection of tins.
I bought this antique steam iron from Mama Africa in Greenside and use it to store antique cutlery, most of which were gifts from Sous Chef.
Produce purchased on Sunday at Mooiberge Farm stall outside Stellenbosch: Juniper berries, Goji berries, dried peaches and dried cranberries.
I have already used the dried peaches in a dish of braised, peppered short ribs and capers, with the Goji berries in couscous.
