Gadget-love (from a decided non-gadget lover!)
I am going to sound so fickle now - only yesterday I was declaring my love for the musings and recipes of David Lebovitz. Now here I am falling in love with a machine. I have room in my heart for many food related people and creations so don't think these are just mere crushes, I am true to them all!
My latest object of desire, just a glance of a photo on the back of a catalogue wrapped in plastic and almost obscured by bills in the bundle of post on my colleague's deak, is a Kenwood Chef but not quite as I have ever seen one before. This is a Kenwood Cooking Chef as available in the UK through Nisbets.
The Kenwood Cooking Chef, well, I am not sure where to start. Kenwood are being very shy about the machines attributes so that leaves me to guess ... A mixer that cooks? Not an obvious choice for a baker initially but I am sure that i can justify it somehow. What about for tempering chocolate, a low temperature heating the chocolate kept gently moving in the bowl? A hollandaise sauce? Icing? To be honest, I don't even know where to start, and whilst my imagination is yearning to be let loose, i have work deadlines so pressing that I have to put this to the back on my mind for now and concentrate on the task in hand.
If you want to see this in action, Kenwood are hosting a series of launches across the UK in September and October, you can find details on their website here, you will need to check back for the dates as they haven't been posted yet.
I have to get back to the business in hand for now and will leave it to you to dream on my behalf!
I'm dreaming of eating... smoked haddock kedgeree leftovers for lunch
