In my kitchen…

Welcome to July…yes, JULY!!! Already! Not long until Christmas….;) 

So, onto this month’s fun in my kitchen, the fabulous blog link up hosted by Celia of Fig, Jam and Lime Cordial…check it out and have a glimpse into other blogger’s worlds..

In my kitchen…is my absolute favourite new thing…this stamped vintage teaspoon…

  Yes, it was made to order, I chose the wording, I also purchased one for my BFF’s 40th birthday. The delivery was fast and the quality is great. I just love my spoon!!! I got it from this website.

And of course, in my kitchen, is always LOTS of tahini to go with the spoon..

  In my kitchen…is a new batch of spices from the fabulous Persepolis..the south London shop and online store is run by Sally Butcher who has also written several great Persian/Middle Eastern cookbooks, of which I own each one! I know I make my own spice mixes, but sometimes it’s good to try out the experts’. 

  I also received this cool falafel making tool as part of the same order… 

 In my this vintage scoop from a local shop that I recently discovered. The shop is full of goodies, I’m sure you’ll be seeing more from there in the future..

  In my ktichen…is this picture frame based on the typical doors found at the entrance of locals’ homes in the UAE… 



 In my kitchen…this week has been the usual daily cooking, including lots of spices and flavours and fresh produce..I just love this photo, the aroma was as good as the image..
 …and of course, lots of COLOUR!!!!! 


Today I thought I’d bring my collection to this week’s Fiesta Friday too, hosted this week by the lovely Julie and Josette, I hope you all like my collection.

Have a great weekend, and if you celebrate, Happy 4th July for tomorrow 🙂

    My god, I was exclaiming about how stunning the colours are before I got to your colour reference! Cute spoon, those rose petals look more like a potpourri blend than a spice, what do you do with them? Dare I say I still have and use an ice-cream scoop like that, the one I grew up with. Mmm, falafel maker, that’s interesting, I’ve only ever rolled them into balls. Thanks for sharing!

    I love everything here, Elaine. Love the falafel making tool as well and of course, the spoon. I should find myself something like that. But as you said, I need a whole set. 😀 Happy FF and its always lovely to have a tour in your kitchen. 🙂 xx

    Your spoon is beyond fabulous! What a treasure. 🙂 I also love your falafel tool- I’ve never heard or seen such a thing! I’m glad that you showed how it’s used… I wasn’t sure at first glance. 🙂 Thanks for the tour & Happy Fiesta Friday!

    As a veggie, I am loving absolutely everything in your kitchen. I have the cookbook from Persopolis, but can’t wait to visit it one day (I live in Wales). what is the golpar for? I have not seen that spice blend before. I have one of those falafel makers too, think I’ve used it twice, need to dig it out. PS a stmaped spoon is on my wish list, hopefully I will get one before the year if out. Wonderful peek into your kitchen, thank you for sharing.

      Thank you so much, I’m so glad you like it all 🙂
      Golpar is a spice I recently read about on someone else’s blog, it’s a Persian spice that is often sprinkled over dishes. I’m still getting used to the taste.
      I hope you get your spoon soon xx

    Elaine, thanks again for the glimpse of your kitchen. It’s always so bright and colourful! I love that second to last photo. I can almost taste the spices and flavours through the screen. Your vintage teaspoon is you to a T! I completely concur with it’s stamp. I can’t wait to be home and to try more of your hummus so I can get tons of tahini in my life.

    What a wonderful post! So much fun and no, you can never have enough tahini. I’m so, so jealous of your felafel maker. I saw one in Egypt a few years ago and looked and looked but couldn’t find one. Not many of them in these parts but I’m on the hunt again. Cheers!

    Thanks for the tour

    I absolutely love the spoon! I have a couple stamped forks but the special order makes it even better. The spice mixes all look so lovely, I can almost smell them. The falafel tool also looks wonderful, as does the finished dish.

    I think I might want to come and live in your kitchen. Love the tahini spoon as I do tahini and all of those spices. As for the falafel stamp, I now have serious envy.
