Our In The Kitchen feature gives us the opportunity to meet a different food blogger each month and ask them to show us their favourite tools and gadgets around their kitchen. This month we have a nosy around Kiran Singh’s kitchen. Kiran, who is originally from Norway, but now lives in London, blogs at Passion For Food.
Over to Kiran…
One of the things I LOVE about cooking is that cooking a meal is one of the most personal and intimate things you can do for someone. You’re literally providing plated nourishment made with your own hands and creativity – even if you’re following a recipe, you picked the recipe and planned the meal didn’t you? The speciality about a home cooked meal is the feeling of abundance it provides, everything you have and need is right in the front of you within arms reach. The fragrance of garlic, the crackle from the skillet, end the sight of perfectly roasted bird coming out from the oven….DIVINE! Cooking speaks to all of my senses. It’s a joy I’m so proud to know!
This is just a close-up of the main part of the kitchen which is used all the time. I’ve got my hob in the centre, sink with a window overlooking the beautiful canal and to the left is my working space.
This is my compact, but beautiful kitchen! As it’s small, everything that’s needed is within reach! This makes the whole cooking experience more enjoyable for me – it creates a kind of cosy ambiance.
I absolutely love my DAB radio – nothing beats the moment of cooking a yummy meal while listening and dancing to Jazz music. I did some diy and set-up a window shelf for my herbs. And of course my Jamie Oliver onion and garlic tins, my pestle and mortar, plus my rather rustic whistle kettle.
Now this is where it all happens! I have got a small drawer shelf on the wall containing stock, spices, bag clips and more. I love wooden chopping boards, something rustic about it. I’ve got a selection of Italian knifes on the wall, my little basket for vegetables and most importantly; a place for my tablet. I absolutely love watching Nigel Slater cook while I cook. Just makes the whole experience joyful.
