Okay, so for most people baking a cake isn’t something that you’d even bother to mention, but it’s not something that you’ll hear me say often. Whilst I love eating delicious food and am perfectly capable of feeding myself – cooking and baking aren’t really something I’m good at or are my idea of fun for that matter.
It’s something I’d love to be better at, but is equally something that I never seem to find the time to do, so when Joseph Joseph got in touch to see if we would like to try some of their new products we jumped at the chance to try out some new tools as an excuse to get baking.
Now, even the best tools aren’t ever going to turn me into a skilled cook, but I have to admit that it was fun to try our new kitchen gadgets. For someone like me who loves things to be tidy and organised, the index chopping boards are perfect. They all slot together neatly into the holder and can easily be kept in easy reach on the kitchen worktop without taking up too much space.
The boards are labeled with little icons to help you keep raw meat board separate from veg and fish and the colours of the boards and measuring cups which are part of the new Joseph Joseph Opal collection are lovely. The shades of blues, greens and yellows are really calm and subtle and if there’s anything I need in the kitchen it’s to be calm!
We already have a few other Joseph Joseph products which we love and as you can probably tell, we really like our new chopping board and measuring spoons, too. They’re a great combination of design and functionality.
Most importantly though my cake – it’s actually lemon tart – turned out really well (especially considering that I made it). I even managed to eat a couple of pieces before Jan scoffed the whole lot! (how bad could it be if he ate ¾ of it over the course of a weekend!).
Are you any good at cooking or baking? Do you have any kitchen gadgets that make your life easier? What do you think of the new Joseph Joseph Opal Collection? Do you love the colours as much as we do?
