Christmas can mean many different things to many different people, but when it comes to the crunch, Xmas dinner is probably top of the tree in terms of a priority. After all, no one wants to have a memory of a disappointing repast on the 25th. Without wanting to put any undue pressure on anyone, we thought it’d be a great idea to take a look at some of the helpful kitchen items available right now at Dotmaison.
The Swiss company Spring have a fine history of providing advanced creations designed and produced to make cooking radically easier. The Spring Brigade range of premium cookware can offer an excellent introduction to the world of fine cooking – and by extension dining – to anyone with an interest and devotion to the best a kitchen can deliver. Consisting of 4 pieces and available as a set or individually, the Sauteuse pans and saucepans are the perfect aid to creating beautiful dishes whatever the time of year.
An integral part of a cooking operation – whether at Christmas or otherwise – is in the prep. Essential to good preparation is the cutting, chopping and trimming of ingredients. In order to do this to maximum efficiency, you’ll need to have a reliable chopping board! The wonderfully striking black mini triangle cutting board by Ferm Living provides exactly this in fine style. Dishwasher safe, reversible and created out of strengthened laminated birch veneer, the board can provide a safe platform for hot dishes. As a way of making ready for the meal of your dreams this is a great start!
The Craft Rolling Pin by Normann Copenhagen is just the thing for when you’re thinking of baking up a storm. The essential bases of cakes, pies and biscuits rely on the ability to flatten and modify flour and pastry – this is something you can control with ease using this finely attuned instrument of culinary good sense. Comfortable to use and optimised for the best possible performance this oak rolling pin with marble handles (available in black or white) is one kitchen essential designed to lend a helpful hand in this most important of kitchen tasks.
So roll out all your new cooking ideas this Christmas, we’re sure they’ll be more than welcome!
