When I first set up home in Paris, my parents drove across with a life starter pack. Everything from essential kitchen utensils to cookery books. I still treasure many of the kitchen utensils, including my Nan’s cucumber slicer, the Larousse Gastronomique, the sharp knives.
My goddaughter is setting up home with her boyfriend. So going through Mum’s kitchen, it occurred to me to pass on the starter pack. Everything from a colander to wooden spoons, grater and salad set and a basic cookery book. I hope she’ll get as much fun out of them as we did.
Pass it on.
