The art of food and drink decoration

As a gardener, I particularly like this time of year when the seed catalogues come through the door. I love flicking through the pages and dreaming of the garden I could have, if only the weather were better/I had more time/I were more green fingered.

As a cook, what catalogues do we have? Lakeland? I get rather frustrated with Lakeland’s catalogue – too many weird gadgets for me, but I know many love it.

There’s something rather indulgent in spending time absorbed in a catalogue rather than clicking through web pages, so I was pleased to discover another magazine/catalogue to delve into “Inspired by food” from Squires Kitchen.  Now, you can see all the items in the magazine on their website, but I’ve spent a while browsing off line (well, okay quite a long while).

There are tools of the trade for jam makers, chocolate transfers, recipes (chocolate cake pops anyone), some very serious impression moulds for cake decorators and 2 pages of candles to put on cakes and umpteen other things such as silicon moulds (and you’ll know how much Caroline and I like our moulds). I’m hooked. The magazine version costs £5.95, but of course you can shop online.

I’m just pleased I can source some chocolate couverture for the Chocolate Recipe book I am reviewing …

You can order the magazine online.

Established over 25 years ago, Squires Kitchen manufactures over 2,000 own-brand, high quality, innovative products for the cake decorating and sugarcraft market worldwide.

Food is my passion. Always curious about new foods, ingredients, suppliers, chefs, restaurants both in Scotland and further afield. I am currently studying to be a professional baker in France.
