1. Eating seasonally. We always love to talk food but when the seasons change it gives us a new topic to discuss, what is local and in season? Fennel is one vegie that’s currently got me captivated thanks to my Mum and luckily Autumn is the perfect time for it! 2. Ankle boots. They seem to be everywhere as winter approaches but I still haven’t found the perfect pair. This pair from Gorman is pretty close though! 3. Learning new Italian words such as farfallone which means a big butterfly or colloquially used to refer to someone who flirts a lot! 4. Thick, delicious Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey. My boyfriend is even getting up in time for breakfast before work when he knows he can have this slathered on rye bread with butter. Plus the tin is super cute on my kitchen bench. What are you loving right now? Love, your angel,
Picture this. It’s 4pm on a Saturday afternoon and you’ve just got a phone call. Your friends are having an impromptu BBQ at 6pm and because you always bring the sweets they’ve asked you to bring something for dessert. The problem is you are currently watching Real Housewives of Beverley Hills and really don’t want to hang out in the kitchen for the next two hours. Solution? Super simple chocolate spiders! Ingredients 1 packet of original fried noodles (from the Asian aisle in your supermarket) 2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter or Gianduja 200grams Belgian dark chocolate 1. Microwave dark chocolate and peanut butter or Gianduja in a microwave safe bowl for about 60 seconds on high. If not melted, then microwave again in 5 second intervals. 2. Mix well until it is a smooth paste. 3. Add noodles and coat them well. 4. Spoon the mixture onto a grease-proof paper, or into individual paper
Here at Kitchen Angel we love our Mum’s. They are our constant guides, inspiring us every day and always offering unconditional love and support. We thought with Mother’s Day coming up we would ask some of our staff and regular visitors what their mothers taught them! Georgina (nearly 4) – How to do nice things & cuddle. Paolo (31) – How to be on time, be accountable & how to iron, wash and cook! Dina (66) – To always wash your face & comb your hair first thing in the morning. Laura (37) – That you don’t need recipes to cook, how to make my bed & an obsession with coffee. Oh and I can’t forget that she taught me my love of fashion! Trudy (26) – To always be considerate and kind. To be open minded, love animals and to trust my creativity! Julian (6) – How to
I came into work on Monday and there was some papers on my desk about Thankyou water and a post it from my boss ‘you will love this’. She was right. In Locale we have recently swapped the water brand that we stock to Thankyou water, a social enterprise founded by 3 young Aussies which sells bottle water to Australians to help fund safe water to people in developing countries. It took them a few years to get off the ground but in the last few years Thankyou water has really taken off as the concept has taken hold and larger industries have given their support by assisting with machinery and stocking. The Australian bottled water industry is worth $600 million a year however 800 million people around the world have no access to safe water. The founders really tapped into this market and are helping Autralians to help others just by grabbing a bottle
Ciao! I’m Trudy, the newest member of the Kitchen Angel team. I’ve been a long time fan of all things Italian so when I was offered the chance to work in a fun environment where I got to sample and tout the benefits of the Kitchen Angel products, many of which are gluten, dairy and preservative free I jumped at the chance! What makes Kitchen Angel products so unique and delicious is that they are made from whole nuts. Using our super duper special machine we crush the nuts whole to make the delicious baking mixes which are our signature products. Working with nuts to produce these products means Mario, our head chef, is particularly discerning when it comes to sourcing his supplies. He personally heads out to test the nuts before he purchases them to ensure their quality and freshness. Having access to some of the best nuts around means we also are able
• the Lindt Gold Bunny. We may or may not have over indulged in a rabbit or two this last month. And we may or may not still have another couple of bunnies sitting on our kitchen bench. • my new O Bag. Uber cool colour, texture and look, reminiscent of the mediterranean sea. This bag takes me from carrying my laptop to doing the grocery shopping with many a look of envy as it sashays down the street. • radishes. a long lost root vegetable that I’ve recently rediscovered thanks to the girls at work. This veggie is making a BIG come back in my favourite salads and cheese on crackers. • Solare. Pronounced /soˈlare/. The Italian word to describe someone’s “sunny” or cheerful disposition. We just love this word at the moment. Just saying it puts a smile on my face! What are you loving right now?
We’re so excited to be at the High Tea Party being held at the Sofitel, Brisbane this weekend. We hear the Saturday has been a sell out and as at the time of publishing this post, there are still a couple of tickets left for the Sunday sessions. Come on girls, what other excuse do you need to get your girlfriends together for a bit of food, frivolity and fancy things?! For those of you coming along, make sure you pop in and say hi to myself and Trudy at the Kitchen Angel stand. We’ll be there with our famous biscotti, baking mixes and other goodies. We will also be showcasing our newest product at the event (that’s right, it will be available first and foremost to all the High Tea Party goers before it is released anywhere else) so make sure you come in to try it before everyone else gets on the bandwagon.
