Our kitchen is the heart of our home and one of my favourite places to be. As I have said before design and layout are important but the culinary gadgets you collect over time are equally important. These are the 4 things that complete my kitchen:
- A bright red “Kitchen Aid” Artisan mixer – well mine is red, but any colour will do, as long as it’s a “Kitchen Aid”. As well as being a practical asset, it is also a work of art – so even if you never use it, it looks good!
- A bright red “Le Creuset” pot – yes you are seeing a trend, I do like red, almost as much as I like pink. This is an absolute must, if you do not already have one – they are quite pricey but worth every cent!
- A good set of knives is vital, start small and build on your collection – any chef will tell you this is an absolute must, you cannot under estimate the importance of good quality – sharp knives, just watch those fingers!
- A “Jamie Oliver” cookbook or two – yes I am a big fan, his cookbooks are great and his recipes actually work. Again if you never use them, they look great on the shelf!
