I couldn’t believe it when I wrote that title above, In My Kitchen in August! But indeed, it’s already August in this year that has just flown by. Maybe it’s best not to think about that too much and just have a look at what has been happening in my kitchen lately.
on my balcony are coming along very nicely and I've had the first
tomato and romano pepper harvest. The tomatoes are an orange
variant of San Marzano tomatoes and they are so so tasty. The onion squash is also growing fast.
I bought two Danish oils or dressings for my summer salads: a wild garlic oil and a sea buckthorn dressing. They are so handy to just sprinkle on lovely veg. I also got a quality Italian olive oil from an Italian grocery store. It is so nice and has an intense flavour. I also love the label.
There are two new plates in my kitchen, which I’m quite happy about.
I detected a nice new brand of ecological nuts.
I found this Hodmedod's British Vaal Dhal in my local supermarket and I'm delighted to try it soon. I used to buy a lot of Hodmedod's products in Britain and they were always qualitative.
I was equally delighted to find my old favourite, Applewood Smoked Cheddar, here. It’s such a tasty cheese.
We went to a farmer's market and got a wonderful haul of local produce: salad, garlic, onions, bread and cider. The salad was incredibly fresh and I enjoyed it very much on the side of these fried potatoes.
Here are some other dishes I’ve cooked.
Vegan tacos with watermelon
Spaghetti bake with salad
Cauliflower cheese with vegan frikadeller and veggies
Have a nice weekend!
