I am currently out at our property in Tara, Queensland which is in a rural area far from what I consider to be the civilized world. My husband felt we were bringing quite enough stuff so I had to leave behind my Jamie Oliver frypan and skillet. It’s not that I am without the necessary utensils to create a meal, I have my Sunbeam electric frypan, turbo oven and an assortment of cheap brand frypans and saucepans, Weber and gas range. It’s just that now I have moved up to the better quality cookware I really miss all it’s great features.
After all Jamie Oliver cookware has a fantastic non-stick finish which means even the eggs don’t stick to the pan. Believe me the horrible mess of eggs I am serving up at the moment is not a pretty sight. Everything sticks to the cheap frypan and burns in parts even with the heat turned right down. This is something I am no longer used to as my T-Fal frypan has a red spot that lets me know when the pan is at the right temperature to add food and because of the conductivity of the metal used, it reacts quickly to changes in temperature.
Not only does my lovely Jamie Oliver cookware make cooking a breeze, it also washes up quickly and easily. A task that is not quite so easily undertaken with the cheap homebrand frypan.
So as much as I am enjoying the peace and quiet, the goannas, the ducks, the kangaroos bouncing over the paddock and sitting by the fish filled dam, I am missing my great new cookware.
Speaking of Goanna’s, this fellow came to visit while I was sitting out by the dam, throwing bread to the fish. I have been told that they make great eating but I am content just to take his photograph.
