The very first whisk I ever owned was a hand held manual one (see the middle one). I rarely use it now. I have to be honest I do have an electric one too that comes out when whipping cream, making meringues or for souffles, though its been a while since I made souffles. I think the last one I made and blogged abut one was a Feta Souffle . Long time...
The duck blue whisk one (above) came free with a cooking magazine many years ago. The one next to it is a mini whisk that I adore using for hot chocolate.
I also have a lot of tongs. I must admit many of them have over the years been from my mothers kitchen.
The one time I find myself using them is for serving spaghetti pasta. I can make such a mess of it otherwise. I also have a wooden set designed specifically for salad leaves, I promise to showcase that with my homegrown salad leaves next time.
Update: I am feeling much better - health wise and feeling more like myself so have started packing boxes for our move in two weeks time. Sadly the flat has not been sold, and though it is very unlikely, we have reduced the asking price of the flat by quite a lot, hoping for a sale sooner than later. This means that D will still have to come up a few times until the place is sold.
Anyway, right now, I am both excited and overwhelmed at all the stuff coming out of my cabinets: gorgeous plate, serving platters, cups and saucers. I am amazed at some of the kitchen stuff that I am hoarding and has never seen the kitchen lights. This is certainly going to change. I don't know why I am keeping them hiding, time to use them, show them off and enjoy them.
