  • Ndali Vanilla Powder

    Vanilla is often one of the forgotten about spices at Christmas. I often combine vanilla with cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice and cloves. Vanilla has this extraordinary ability to pair with any of those spices and provide a lighter, sweeter, top note. A classic example of combining these spices would be using vanilla and cinnamon in cinnamon buns or adding a teaspoon of nutmeg and a teaspoon of vanilla powder into some buttermilk muffins. I have a particular affinity to this Ndali vanilla powder, simply because I met the farmers who grow it and harvest it and know the workers and...

  • The best chopping board

    What makes a great chopping board? A bread board should be the centre piece of the table. I love chopping boards as they get older.  The more lines they get from cutting loaves, the more I love them, but not all chopping boards are created equal. I like my boards to be heavy, and robust.  I love to feel as though the wood will outlast me.  Perhaps it is because a tree has been sacrificed to make a good board, and yes a good board is always wooden. I really love this chopping board as it...

  • Why use a stainless steel mixing bowl to make bread?

      If you read last week's beginners breed recipe then you might have spotted my daughter holding a beautiful large stainless steel mixing bowl. I've had lots of people asking about it so here is a little bit more on mixing bowls. A decent mixing bowl is an essential basic item in any baker’s kitchen. I love my old style  pottery bowls, but I would never be without a professional stainless steel one. One of the main differences that I notice between professional bakeries or kitchens and domestic kitchens is the size of the bowls.  In most instances...

  • Original Beans Chocolate

    Original Beans Chocolate  this extraordinary chocolate is as delicious as it is rare. This chocolate from war-torn Eastern Congo and this one in the photo is from the Virunga National Park, Africa’s oldest nature reserve and home of the last mountain gorilla's. < Before cacao trees were cultivated by humans, they grew wild under the lush canopies of diverse forest communities. Even now the finest chocolate is made from the world’s rarest and most flavourful cacao beans that grow in the equatorial rain forests, but the forests that provide our planet with the greatest biodiversity are disappearing at an...

  • High-grade stainless steel pastry or cookie cutters that are used by professional chefs

      Those aren't ordinary cutters.  These are precision made German cutters.  They are, high-grade stainless steel pastry or cookie cutters that are used by professional chefs.  They are uncompromisingly strong and unlike cheaper lower quality cutters they will not easily deform. These round, corrugated cutters are perfect for a gift and come as a set of 9 from 30mm to 110mm supplied in a strong plastic case that is easy to clean. They are approximately 35mm deep. I love the way they feel, and cut pasty, and the the kind of superb quality to beautiful...

  • Danish Dough Whisk

    This month's baking product is just style on a stick. I always use a dough whisk when I’m mixing bread dough at home, it is one of my essential baking tools because it it great at mixing dough and far better than a spoon because the design allows you to move through the dough with ease … and it’s so much easier to clean than a spoon. I especially recommend it for people who have limited strength in their arm who don’t want to rely on a machine to mix their bread. They are really beautifully made with either...
