Hello, and welcome to my kitchen!
We live in a semi-basement flat so I can only apologise for the lighting (I struggle with food photos too!). I love our kitchen, it’s so spacious and it directly leads onto our lounge making this the ideal party flat! It’s also really nice to be able to have a table set up in the kitchen because when we have people for dinner I can keep chatting whilst I cook, as long as I don’t make too much of a mess (which people who know me know I struggle with!).
I would also love to tell you that my kitchen is always this tidy, but that would be a massive lie! In fact I tidied inside my cupboards just for these photos, turns out vegan MoFo is good for household chores as well as delicious food! It’s lucky I did to be honest, I found a long abandoned bag of spirulina had exploded covering quite a few things in dark green powder…yay.
After I cleaned and sorted the cupboard I wrote a list of everything in there to encourage me to use up some of the ingredients…
…It got quite long.
My name is Elise, and I’m a spice addict!
These are a few of my favourite things….
My Dr Who paraphernalia
My magimix….makes so many kitchen chores easier!
My canvas of a photo that I took in India
My herbal tea collection
A wire artwork that my sister made us :)
We only have under the work surface cupboards so we needed some more storage for my collection of cookbooks (well some of them anyway!) and the dried ingredients such as couscous and other grains. So we bought a really basic set of shelves from Ikea, I think it turned out really well :)
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed the tour of our kitchen. We rent, so it’s still a little far from where my ideal kitchen would be, I’d like a LOT more colour. My next project is to paint our kitchen table, I’m thinking bright yellow!
See you tomorrow,
I loved reading about everyone’s favourite cookbooks, I don’t need an excuse to buy any more as you can see above but I must admit I’m tempted, very tempted by Miyoko Schinner’s Homemade Vegan Pantry as talked about by Kelly. Dawn also reminded me that I’m still missing Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar from my Isa collection.
