|Such treasure! A Kenwood Chef - at last!|
Hubby is terribly excited, as the Kenwood came with a dough hook. Well you know what an artisan baker he is - although I'm not sure artisan bakers are supposed to use things like Kenwood Chefs, aren't they supposed to sweat as they mix things by hand? LOL Anyway, we'll forgive him that, as anything that makes life a teensy bit easier has got to be a good thing.
You'll see above his first loaf of bread, made using the Kenwood. He was so proud. Now, I think we're on to loaf three or four of various incarnations of bread, in the search for the perfect "everyday" loaf.
I have to admit, that all I've done with it (so far) is make a smoothie - but what a smoothie! I've always wanted to be able to add ice cubes to a smoothie - and ice cubes are definitely more than my little stick blender could cope with. The Kenwood, however, just munched it's powerful way through them.
My smoothie was made with an enormous Cox's apple, three red plums, a banana, three dessertspoonfuls of plain live yoghurt, around 200ml of apple juice and three ice cubes. Whizz it all up and it makes enough for two smoothies that will wake up the most jaded of taste buds!
