In my kitchen in June, there are a few new things among the old faithfuls.
|It's the season for lots of good vegetables that we haven't|
enjoyed since last summer. Here's new corn served in a
very old serving dish.
|Penzey's Spices is always a good source of new flavors|
as well as replacements for spices I've used up.
Here you see my order from earlier this month, including
Bouquet Garni, Tellicherry Peppercorns, and more.
|Cauliflower, eggplant, and red bell pepper on the fire.|
The eggplant became babaganoush.
|Cauliflower and red pepper salad.|
A Retro Style
|On the table: new ceramic plates and new cloth dinner napkins, with very classic|
Dansk design place mats and Dansk salt & pepper shakers that I've had for a very long time.
|Dansk -- meaning Danish -- was the trademark for a wide variety of table|
linens, cookware, dishes, furniture, and household accessories. It was very popular
in the fifties and sixties, and now is a retro collectible.
New and Old Rolling Pins and Other Baking Tools
|My mother's rolling pin dates from the 1950s. Before she had this one, she used a bottle to roll out pie dough or cookies. |
For some of his bread recipes, Len wanted a French style rolling pin -- his new one is very useful.
|Another practical purchase: three glass mixing bowls, which will be|
handy for many bread-making tasks, among other uses.
|One of the new bowls in use for making sourdough starter.|
|The result: a rye-raisin bread from the Poilâne book (reviewed here.)|
One of several successful bakes that Len has done this month.
|This month, I also baked a couple of sweets — I talked about|
this pan of brownies a few days ago.
|I also baked peanut butter cookies from the recipe|
in the Joy of Cooking. A classic worth keeping!
