Number 2 of Kristy’s 5 Must Haves for the Kitchen!

potato Rice Rice Baby…

Kristy swears by her potato ricer as  a must have to making perfect Gnocchi! Good pasta is one of the most pleasurable things to eat, so why not perfect making your own? You can also have creamier mash and make all sorts of purees the manual way, using a great ricer like this one from House Bunbury.

There is something organic and satisfying making your meals the old fashioned way and sometimes using funky new gadgets just don’t give you the result you need. Ricing is perfect for potatoes, which are starchy and become glutinous when over-processed. As one of her Top 5, the Potato Ricer is in constant use at Kristy’s!

So get in the kitchen, mash up some spuds and enjoy getting your cook on! Thanks again to Maria at House in the Stirlings Centre, Bunbury!

Kristie’s 5 ‘Must Haves’ for the Kitchen

We all have things we just can’t live without, so over the next five weeks Stylo will share with you FIVE of Kristie’s ‘must haves’ in the kitchen. Kristie is a chef extraordinaire and owner of one of Bunbury’s coolest and yummiest eateries, Cafe 140. Stylo visited House in the Stirlings Centre to found out just what these must have items are………

Chopper
Top Chop

Number 1 on the list…….super sharp, steel knives that have the blade shaft continuing right through to the handle are a ‘must have’ for every chef or home cook. Global Knives are built for precision cutting. The handles are left hollow then filled with just the correct amount of sand for perfect balance. Buy a set, keep them sharp and chop away…

The Cuban Connection

Norberto Marrero and Janette Brossard have arrived in Bunbury after a journey that has taken over 2 years, countless emails and the development of a special relationship between artists and art lovers.  When Liz and Lloyd Horn purchased an entire collection of prints while on holiday in Cuba, they did not imagine it would see them hosting 2 very accomplished and successful Cuban printmakers in their home town of Bunbury, and instigate an exhibition of prints at the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries, opening this Thursday 10 July.

Norberto and Janette have travelled to Australia with an amazing collection of prints. 12 artists are being represented through both the BRAG exhibition and one that opened at ECU in Perth last Friday. 6 of those artists works are in Bunbury including an inspiring collection by our guests. Both Norberto and Janette are represented by the Havanna Gallery in Zurich and are no strangers to international exhibits, having had their work shown in Brazil, England, Mexico and Boston (USA). First meeting at Art School they have now been professional artists for 20 years, and continued to develop and hone their craft. In the past 2 to 3 years they have been exploring Japanese influences which is evident in the prints that will be on show.

Says Janette, “printmakers are more marginalised” which is why such exchanges are so important. It is an unusual cultural dialogue that has real value to printmakers through the development of relationships with other printmakers on an international basis.

ALL Bunbury residents and art lovers are encouraged to attend the opening this Thursday 10 at BRAG from 6pm.

WA artists are being given the rare opportunity to attend workshops both in Perth and Bunbury during “The Cuban Connection” and more information can be sourced through BRAG at www.brag.org.au

Check out past blogs on Stylo to see how Liz and Lloyd stumbled across Norberto and Janette’s work. A wonderful holiday experience.
