Happy New Year to all our readers and a big thank you to Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for another year of IMK fun.

In My Kitchen this January ….



These stunning flowers from my wonderful husband.


More of my mouth-watering Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Muffins.  Here is the link for the recipe.


A Marks and Spencer olive oil and balsamic vinegar set I got as a Christmas gift.


A selection of chutney’s to go with cheese that was also given to me as a Christmas present.


My favourite pork and marmalade sausages from a wonderful shop in Merstham called Fanny’s Farm Shop.


The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnet, recommended to me by a chef I know.  The Flavour Thesaurus is a must have reference book for food writers and chefs.  It follows the form of Roget’s Thesaurus and is the first book to examine which flavours go together pair by pair.  Winner of numerous awards it covers classic pairings such as pork & apple, lamb & apricot and contemporary favourites such as chocolate and chilli or lobster and vanilla, as well as interesting but unlikely sounding couples such as black pudding and chocolate and blueberry and mushroom.


Happy New Year
