I was really thrilled to be invited to be part of the WorldFoods Fusion Taste Team and you can follow what me and some other lovely bloggers are going to be getting up to over on Facebook as we are set lots of cooking challenges but our very first task is to give you a sneak peek into our kitchens. Think of it as seeing us in our natural habitats, like a trip to the zoo. Except I’m not going to charge you an extortionate amount for a tiger shaped helium filled balloon that will get in your way all day. In fact, there are no balloons at all. And I’m rambling.
Would you like to see my kitchen..?
We inherited an awful kitchen when we moved into this house and it was literally falling to pieces so after much longing (and saving!) we finally had a new kitchen fitted at the end of last year.
Designing the kitchen was a bit of a nightmare as my Other Half has such different taste to me. He would like to live in a shiny minimalist box while my taste is much more frilly around the edges and some might say cluttered like my brain *cough* So the kitchen was a compromise between our two very different styles.
He got his sleek white high gloss handle free units and I got my baby pink walls.
He got his stainless steel hob and extractor and I got my chunky wooden worktops.
He got (mainly) clutter free tops whilst I got shelves to fill with pretty teacups and cow shaped milk jugs.
I love my kitchen. It is a higgledy piggledy shape with the utility room coming off to one side then the open plan dining area attached.
I like to think that we have made the best of it though and I couldn’t be happier with it to be honest.
It was a long time in the waiting to get my dream kitchen and now I’m never out of it!
I love to cook and bake and I’m really excited to be part of the Fusion Taste Team. I do love Asian food but I have to confess that it’s something that I’m often not ambitious enough to try out often enough for myself so I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead.
There are lots more details over on the WorldFoods Fusion of Flavours page over on Facebook of what we are going to be getting up to (and of course a chance to snoop around the kitchens of my fellow Taste Team members too!)
