We decided that our most used utensil is definitely our chopping knife
and the the worst untensil we have is a milk frother, completely useless,
dont know what we were thinking!

a few things that I cannot live without in the kitchen

First of all I have a nifty little thing that removes the odours of garlic and onions off your hands, its stainless steel and you simply rub it on your hands while you wash them, a bit like soap......and it works (I will ask Andrew to send a pic on mobile phone) my sister found it in Oz and it cost about €5 (she may have kept the packaging, if your interested I can ask her). I was sceptical at first but am now converted!

A grinder for coffee beans for a decent cup of coffee

Le Creuset cookware, worth its weight in gold (and its not light!)

Spaghetti tongs - seemed liked a gimmick at the time but very useful - in fact the italians have lots of useful bits for specific types of pasta and usually nicely styled too

Baby's bottle - its great to use for measuring liquids, i will be keeping a few just for that!

Commis Chef Connie

My five top utensils which I love to use whilst cooking are, in no particular order:



1 My Office Knife – To cut everything in the right proportion

2 Good Peeler – To peel minimum amount off veg, fruit etc ‘ Waste not Want not’ motto

3 Carving Knief – For slicing & carving meats, cheese etc, correctly and neatly

4 Whisk & Wooden spoon – Very essential items, you would be surprised how important these are

5 Strainer – Last but not least, a must in every kitchen, But always remember to strain into a large sink not a hand basin or small bowl. A bad scald is a sore thing & can take a long time to heal
