To your very good health

First, thank you for your comments on my last post. I didn't stop to think through that post, obviously, and didn't mean to trigger a wall of concern. In no way was I making light of serious health issues, and for anyone who has suffered a heart attack in the past or suffered any related symptoms that led to serious diagnoses, I trust you know that I wouldn't be so ignorant as to assume a few deep breaths would suffice treatment. Please rest assured that I am seeing a doctor and am in excellent health. 

In other news, I'm prepping for a workshop on Saturday, a From Scratch, and thought I might not have shown you my kitchen! A place I love to be. 




Or my OVEN. (The one on the left.)



I have been seen stroking this mighty machine. All fan, no cold spots, multi tray, temperature accurate to a degree. Is it a wonder I have a crush on it? 

These workshops have blown us away. They're so much fun to run, and we're so grateful people have booked them up. We'll be publishing the new dates for April to June shortly and will be adding in some mid-week dates too. 





We have a big walk around the farm, we harvest produce, and then we go make good stuff. We stop for a lovely lunch, and you take home sourdough starter and a whole bag of things you've made. It's simple and delicious and might inspire you to make a whole lot more stuff from scratch in your own kitchen.

Love to see you here sometime. 

We've just had a last-minute cancellation from this Saturday's workshop, if you'd like to join in you can find all the details over here.



Here's to good food and good health. 


UPDATE (6 hours later): the From Scratch spot has been sold. Again, we're completely humbled by the support we've got. Maybe this whole idea just might fly! xx

Kitchen is well worth feeling chuffed about – it’s gorgeous! Jeez, I wish I lived in NSW. Being stuck up here in Brisbane seems so unfair and I would love to be able to attend one of your workshops. Must think cross border logistics somehow…

In the meantime I am very much inspired by you to cook from scratch. In addition to your slices, I baked my second loaf of Artisan bread in 5 minutes tonight and got a lovely holey structure! I also mixed up my second batch of dough to last us for the next week – haven’t bought a loaf of bread in over a week – usually buy one every three days or so.

I am evidence that you can weave your from scratch magic from afar! Glad you are feeling better too x

Wow, super stainless steel! I love how minimal and functional your kitchen is. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am very glad to hear you have taken steps to ensure your continued good health. Early detection of any health problem is the key really. No-one would ever or could ever think you would make light of anyones health issues except your own ๐Ÿ™‚

From Scratch sounds like so much fun, such a pity I live in SA. I first came across your blog when you were doing A slice of Wednesday and I made your Lazy Lady slice. I have made it and given it away to lots of people and they just love it and its so bloody simple!
Its on my list of things to make today along with homemade bread rolls which are a constant in our freezer – no more bought rolls here!
Andreae (in comments) mentioned the Artisan bread so I must track down that recipe and give it a whirl too! I have a big fat Kenwood Major Premier mixer just itching to mix some dough for me!

Cheers – Joolz xx

Doing workshops is one of my favourite things now. I love yours too. Getting together with a bunch of women and men talking about their skills and lifestyle, it’s a great way to spend a weekend. Good luck with them all.

Your kitchen is fabulous. xx
