Bring Christmas Magic to your Kitchen
This week we've been playing around with our latest collection, creating the ultimate Christmas kitchen for a photo shoot. I am in love with all the beautiful pieces I have found this year. In fact, every time we do a photo shoot I want to keep everything to myself. This time even more so as it's my own kitchen in the photos.
To inspire you, I want to show you some of the wonderful things we have this year, but first I want to share a sugar cookie recipe! with spices! They are perfect to do with children. My son loves using cookie cutters to cut the shapes out of the dough. It's the perfect activity to do as a family.
- 100g unsalted butter softened at room temperature
- 100 g of white sugar
- 1 medium egg, lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 275 g of wheat flour
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ teaspoon ground anise
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 190C/170C with fan. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Mix butter and sugar until creamy. In the same mixture, add the egg and the vanilla extract, little by little, until you get a homogeneous mass. Then add the flour and spices to form a dough.
- Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 1 cm. Using a cookie cutter, cut the cookies out of the dough and carefully place them on the prepared baking tray.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned. Let sit for 2 minutes to harden, then cool on a wire rack.
- Once cool, they can be decorated with icing.
There are beautiful snowy white stoneware plates, there are bowls and platters… but my favorite is the Bea collection – with floral prints etched in subtle natural tones. The Marion collection, in raw terracotta, is also very original.
Another theme that runs through the collection is birds. Our salt shaker and serving plate, shaped like birds, are adorable. We also have a bird-shaped bottle opener and a dispenser made of jute rope.
For wine lovers, we have a gorgeous brass bottle holder, a deer head wine stopper and some truly exceptional glasses.
Our acacia wood cutting boards are ideal to combine with this impressive cheese knife set. We have used small plates to present the quince paste and some olives.
You can find the entire collection now in our Online Store.
