Anna Rose speaks with award-winning food writer and recipe developer Katy Bestow a.k.a Little Miss Meat Free, who shared her culinary keepsakes and favourite things offering us a little glimpse of her life in the kitchen.
Flint and Flame Knives. I love these Flint and Flame knives – not only do they look beautiful but they’re weighty and easy to use. Every kitchen should have a few good knives as it makes chopping and preparation so much easier. Buy the best you can afford and look after them well by always chopping on a semi-pliable wooden chopping board.
[separator type=”thin”]Kilner Jars. My kitchen is full of Kilner jars, both empty and full. They make great storage containers for pulses and rice and also for transporting snacks and lunches. I even use them as vases to brighten up my dinner table.
[separator type=”thin”]Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World – Isa Chandra. Surprisingly, I own very few vegan cookbooks as I prefer the challenge of veganising recipes from any recipe books, not specifically vegan. This is my go-to cupcake book, with every recipe being tried and very much tested. You’ll find that most of the pages are stuck together with cake batter, which is, in my opinion, the sign of a good recipe book!
I can’t live without my notebook and pen in the kitchen – perfect for listing ingredients for new recipes I’m testing and creating new ideas from kitchen disasters…..
[separator type=”thin”]Maldon Sea Salt. “Food without salt is like seeing in black and white”. I love to season my dishes with Maldon’s crisp and crunchy sea salt flakes. It gives bursts of flavour and a clean, subtle taste. I love it so much, I even keep a mini tin in my handbag!
