Last week I was invited to an event with Robert Welch, celebrating their range of Signature Knives and the sale of the one millionth knife!  #Oneinamillion

Now with the dawn of my new kitchen  I have been working my way through cupboards, clearing out, streamlining and replacing items that are beyond their best.

The Pink Whisk Kitchen – Gadgets

So here is another little snippet of life in the new Pink Whisk Kitchen, and some of my favourite bits too – the gadgets!  I love a good dose of technology, products that make life quicker and easier.  Spending so much time in the kitchen I knew that I had to do all I could to make the kitchen work for me.

Appliances – The Pink Whisk Kitchen

So you’ve seen the new kitchen, time for me to show you in a bit more detail.  Hopefully if you’re planning a new kitchen these posts might just give you some ideas.  First up let’s talk major appliances!  There are so many decisions to make when planning a new kitchen, it’s an investment and you want to get the right pieces in the right places, I’m pleased to say that here they’re all working super well.

Revealing the Pink Whisk Kitchen

I am hugely pleased, after almost a year since the work began, to reveal my completed new kitchen.


It’s been a major task from the planning, budgeting, saving up(!), demolition, rebuilding and fitting out the new space, all whilst trying to retain some semblance of normal family life and to keep working from home through the lot!

GEFU Exact Rolling Pin – Review

14620 Gefu EXACT Rolling pin for email

So tell me what sort of rolling pin you use?  I shall confess to having a love hate relationship with rolling pins, I’ve found they’re a baker specific item and we all have a favourite, even if we don’t realise.

For me they can’t have rotating ends otherwise I roll out like a woman deranged, I like a wooden one but it has to be glazed, I’m not keen on pins with turned ends as they mark the pastry, and pins with tapered ends – supposedly to roll a perfect circle, well you need 100 different rolling out techniques!
