Last weekend, I went to a book signing by Wona Miniati who is a coauthor of The Trader Joe's Companion, a fun cookbook with easy recipes.
Wona made a couple items for the audience so we could see some of the recipes in action.
As she was squeezing a lemon, she began to wax rhapsodic about the citrus juicer she was using, like this one:
She told us that it was her absolutely favorite ever kitchen gadget. She made it sound so enticing, it makes me want one!
And it got me to thinking...what is my favorite kitchen gadget?
Well, besides my Moka Pot for coffee (oh sweet love):
And my juicer (I was just singing to you this morning):
Which aren't really cooking gadgets, they are more for making The Delicious.
I'd have to say my absolute favorite kitchen gadget, the one I use for cooking all the time, never lets me down, always on my side, my god how did I ever live without it is...my garlic press (this one is exactly like mine):
Oh man, do I love that thing. *Squirt* and there's tasty garlic ready to rock and roll.
I have deep emotional ties to garlic.
It might be my favorite seasoning.
Although...it's a pretty close battle with:
Cumin is the wonder spice. Don't let anyone tell you different.
I believe if stranded on a deserted island with a head of garlic and a bottle of cumin, I could make knockout food to sustain. I really do!
Do you have a favorite gadget or spice? Let me know, I might end up with kitchen lust!
