Since I started the Whole30 and adopted a Paleo diet, I am cooking more than ever. Three 'proper' meals a day. That means a lot of pots and pans, and a lot of washing up. It also means I am always searching for space on the benchtop, in the fridge, and for new appliances. I dream of a bigger kitchen, and new gadgets daily, so when asked if I would like to write a post about my ideal kitchen I was more than happy to oblige.
My dream kitchen would be BIG! It would have deep wooden benches, and be a very light and open space. I picture a large wooden dining table beyond one of the work tops, against a wall of glass with stunning views over the vegetable patch and out to rolling green hills, or maybe a wide blue ocean. These are the best images I can find to give the idea of what I am meaning - but not quite how it is in my dream.
There would be a double sink, or maybe two, a huge fridge freezer, a large built-in oven and a sizeable induction hob too.
I would keep all laundry items out of the kitchen - there would be a separate room for those. A microwave can be handy - I don't use them much, only to melt ghee and reheat things really, not for cooking, as to me, things never taste so good from a microwave.
I am currently hanging out for one of the super blender/juicers. I saw the Vitamix in action at Britmums and my research into this product has also led me to discover this great Australian Optimum blender, which could suit me even better.
I also have lots of less expensive items on my current dream list. One of the greatest new discoveries of my Paleo lifestyle is sweet potato chips. I made some of those for BB's birthday party. I sliced the sweet potato with a knife, but realised that a mandoline would make for a far more consistent thickness and crispiness. That will realistically be my next purchase, meanwhile, the rest is nice dream!
