Sharing Love and Laughter

aust 2010 036

Back from a very busy ten days in Australia, visiting family and friends. What an extreme cool change from the weather here in Italy.

Had a wonderful time having lunch with a couple of friends and seeing family and celebrating my nephews birthday. My Aunty made that delicious cake above, it’s called “Never fail” cake and as you see just  looks divine, and tasted even better. Hope it’s been written out for me and posted soon so I can share it with you all.

Nothing surprised me more than all the wonderful new kitchen chic products available now in Australia, the range is unbelievable. I just couldn’t resist buying some new products and of course purchasing those favourites like Vegemite, Whittaker’s Bittersweet Dark Block, and Hazelnut chocolate and then being gifted with Cadbury’s Macadamia and Marble chocolate. A new product to me Pashmak persian fairy floss in rose and chocolate flavours, I feel an adventurous recipe coming up as I’ve never used this product, but my sister gave me some tips. Ward’s gelatine setting agent and baking powder, can never have enough and a supply of golden syrup for a handwritten recipe a friend’s sent me (unavailable here).

Catching up on a quick read of some of my all time favourite magazines, I was also astounded by the array of published cook books and magazines available. My mum saved me the May copy of delicious – Collector’s Edition – the annual Italian issue. What a beautiful magazine, great recipes and photographs and full of new and exciting ways of making those taste buds tingle. Couldn’t resist I had to buy the August issue also.

So my heads buzzing with new ideas and I can’t wait to get started… I hope to soak up the closing days of Summer with some fabulous recipes and capture more photographs of our Vineyard…

Happy to be back..xx
