Spending time in the kitchen has honestly never been as chic.
Every single person I know Instagrams their food, I must get at least four pictures a week sent directly to me by friends and family showing off what they’ve created. And now we’ve entered an age where instead of middle aged men and older ladies being the superstars of this industry (sorry Mary Berry) its young, cool and incredibly fashionable bloggers like Ella Woodward of ‘Deliciously Ella’ or the unbelievably cool Hemsley sisters of Hemsley & Hemsley.
Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley are currently my favourite team in the kitchen. The Vogue contributors say that they are “a London based family bossiness for people who want to live healthier and more energised lives”. Want some major envy, go look at their Instagram.
Thanks to them, I’ve gotten quite in to spiralizing my vegetables and using them in salads and soups or instead of pasta and noodles.
I had bought one of the contraptions online (eBay) but the damn thing never arrived so I’ve been using my Mothers every time I go up to visit. Now this palaver just can’t go on, so I’ve gone back online a bought this beauty from amazon;
It was priced at £29.95, which for me is pretty expensive for a kitchen toy but with all the recipes around I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting my moneys worth.
I also decided to get The Hemsley sisters cookbook (my poor friends and family are going to be getting lots of foodie snaps in the coming weeks). The first thing I am wanting to try is the very hyped up Bone Broth. “It’s delicious, soothing and easy to make,” the sisters have been quoted as saying. “Nutritionally, it’s a champion all-rounder, packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, collagen and keratin.”
Now I don’t think you need to buy the cook book just for that one recipe (please just google it) but I am looking forward to getting back in the kitchen with my new toy and new book. Lord help anyone who follows me on Instagram.
