Graham took a break this weekend from kitchen designing to walk Snowdonia with friends. Unfortunately the weather was grim but equipped with his trusty Handpresso, he was happy enough knowing he had plenty of good strong coffee to hand!

.....and at this point, wishing he was back in the office!
Keen cook? Then you'll love this superb range of professional knives from the Japanese makers Kai. The Shun collection of kitchen knives made from Damask steel with Pukka wood handles are solid but not too heavy and beautifully finished.
The range has an excellent selection of blade sizes and cutting options and has various boxed sets including a carvery set which make ideal gifts.
There is also some ingenious ideas for safe storage to suit any knife range.

We had our very first bake off in the showroom this morning using the new Aga and chose these simple shortbread biscuits with a twist.
If you fancy having a go, here's the recipe...
100g plain flour
50g corn flour
50g granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Mix the ingredients together by hand or with a food processor. Roll the dough into a cylindrical shape and cover with cling film. Place in the fridge for about 30 mins to chill and firm. Remove from the fridge and slice into 1cm thick biscuits as shown.
Preheat oven to 160 degrees
Lay the biscuits onto a greased baking tray and place in the oven for 15-20 mins
Remove from the oven and allow to cool (if you can wait!)
Make up double the quanitity and freeze half for baking another day.
Our new Aga is up and running and waiting for it's fabulous new kitchen display to arrive! Very soon we will be holding regular cookery demo's at the showroom but in the meantime, we'll share some delicious recipes with you from the Aga site.
One of our small projects for a property in Lavenham. A quaint, little cottage with lots of original features and very traditional decor, so it was interesting that the clients chose this fairly modern mix of maple and walnut wood.
