I have been watching Masterchef (Australia) since it started up for the season and have been very jealous of all the kitchen / counter space they get to create in. My kitchen is exceptionally tiny. From counter to counter it is just under 6 feet across, and about 3 feet deep. The joys of living in a small flat, I imagine. I often have several things on the go at once (I am a huge fan of multitasking and cook several meals at once) so I am very conscious of using every square inch of space.
I decided to take you on a tour of my kitchen to share it with you. I have tried to make a panorama of my kitchen for you by mashing a few photos together. Next to the stove on the left is the front door and the right side is the edge of the fridge on the edge of the dining area. As you can see on the window sill, my sourdough, sprouts and kitchen herbs loving the morning light. I have several things in various stage of cooking.
Here are the items to start making my chicken stock. Today I am using chicken wings to make the stock with. The meat will be stripped from the bones and made into a risotto of some variety (Probably chicken and leek) and the stock is made into all manner of food stuffs.
In the portable convection oven I have a loaf of sourdough bread baking. This particular recipe has been a bit of a staple at home for the last week or two and I will share this recipe with you in the next few days so look out for it, sourdough lovers!
Joe works weekends so I like to send him to work with a packed lunch. Roasted vegetables with couscous or rice is one of his favourites. Look for this recipe tomorrow.
