When I have to rustle up meals for my family I don’t worry very much about precise measures or amounts. My day-to-day style of cooking is definitely ‘it’ll be fine’ or ‘I think this is what I did last time’. But then I get into trouble.
If it turns out well and I want to share it with you, my lovely readers, I can’t say ‘just add a smidgen of this and a dash of that, oh and don’t forget a pinch of salt’.
Well actually now I can! The lovely people at Culture Vulture have found exactly what I need, measuring spoons that can measure a smidgen, a pinch and a dash.
Based in rural Cumbria, Culture Vulture are experts in sourcing unusual home furnishings and gifts, celebrating the creativity of artisans from around the world, from kitchen and dining ware to furniture and home accessories, from clothing and jewellery to food . In their online catalogue you can find the most wonderful gifts for foodies, including ceramic pots of Mediterranean sea salt, fig flavour pearls, Calabrian liquorice jellies, French Kir syrups and even a cheese-making kit.
The smidgen measuring spoons would make a great stocking filler for the foodie in your life. While they’re a fun gift, being silver-plated they feel high quality in your hand. They come tied together on a leather cord with a cute floral hook to hang them on your wall.
It’s a shame that the attention to detail and cuteness doesn’t extend to the packaging which is quite plain, especially for an item that would mostly be bought as a gift. However, these are by far the cuteness kitchen accessory I’ve seen in a long while.
Now if only I could get all of you to buy them…
Have you decided what you’re buying the foodies in your life for Christmas?
