In a recent splurge of activity I was going around some of the more up market kitchenalia suppliers for ideas to offer a dear relative of mine who is about to reluctantly downsize house – but not her kitchen supplies. It was a breath of fresh air to me for sure, having not really taken on board a great deal of the excitement surrounding the upsurge of interest in all things baking, master chef-ing, pattisserie-ing etc. I am a basic down to earth cook but with a stunted imagination. It was wonderful to look at the kitchens themselves – great shiny gorgeous cookers of all sorts. An absolutely amazing array of appliances, big and small. What I really liked was the colour co-ordination going on in most of them.
The sheer joy of the demonstrators was unbridled passion in some quarters. What happiness can be gained from all kinds of kitchen ideas!
