i know how to cook by ginette mathiot
i don’t think we have the most distinct kitchen style. my love of kitchen bits is almost confused. i want all of the bright colours and heavy patterns. AND any and every imperfect-perfect natural, ceramic or stone piece. so I buy them all. its a miss mash of beautiful messes and muddled objects in #thebigkitchenlife. and it works. for me …
but i’ve narrowed things down for a list easier on the eye. i know not everyone likes a mess. even a beautiful one.
shopping for our home is (in the words of John torrode) a lovely lovely thing. and receiving a house gift – something i wouldn’t have bought myself, or couldn’t afford, have never seen before or a piece that has been given to last a long long time (sentimental again i know – i cried looking at johns few grey hairs the other day.. it’s a very romantic idea this big kitchen life with a husband getting older with me in it) gifts like those – where did you get that tin? ah we were given it back in 2015. it has seen many a biscuit/Christmas/kitchen – gifts like those are perfect.
a basket of bits or a bundle of tea towels. an oven dish or a collection of spoons.
THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD BITS OUT THERE.
the above are some of my favourite more colourful ones. (and a beautiful chocolate bar with a great story behind it the packaging)
