Christmas Kitchen Gifts

Xmas Gifts 2009

I didn't mention anything about Christmas gifts I received!

It was definitely a food themed Christmas this year! My hubby bought me the complete year of Fine Cooking magazines in the hardbound book. I got three years worth: 2006, 2007 and 2008. So exciting to look through magazines for the full year all at once. Hopefully it will get me inspired to cook even more :)

I also got some fancy finishing salts. President's Choice has three variety in nice little tins. Himalayan, fleur de sel, and Cyprus Mediterranean mix. I haven't tried them yet but soon enough.

And who doesn't love silicone spatulas? I personally love this version, the spoonula type. I find the shape of the head so much more sturdier and easier to use for batters or scraping than the typical flat version.

I don't think I would ever get bored of kitchen gifts :)

I love finishing salts... especially the fleur de sel from the Camslkjdlhf whatever- I cannot spell it - the south of France. It is incredible on a tomato, bruschetta, a yogurt cheese ball... and the black lave salt from Hawaii just has a really nice visual appeal on some foods.
You will have fun with these!

I still haven't cracked the salts! So bad :) But the thing is, I kinda almost want to wait for fresh from the garden produce. But, that's a while away yet.

Just the mention of tomatoes makes my mouth water.

I've heard of the hawaiian salt being darker. I can imagine it has an interesting flavor :)
