Cooking with Ease

I feel as if there are two kinds of people in the world, those who are amazing at cooking, and those who burn toast... As one of those people who can't cook (but would love to!!), I find myself looking for things that can help me out of my 'cooking rut'...
Ottolenghi the cookbook $70.00
Inventive yet simple dishes that range from main courses to healthy and quick salads, through to Ottolenghi's famous cakes and breads!

Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Notes from my Kitchen Table' $39.99
Cook the recipes that Gwyneth cooks for her family and friends.. and as Gwyneth says "Make it fun. It doesn't have to be complicated. It will be what it will be."

Monday Morning cooking club, $59.95, is written by a group of Sydney Jewish women that just loved to share recipes and food. With 100 culturally diverse recipes, this book shouldn't dissapoint!
Digital Measuring Jug $59.95

You'll never burn your toast with the Magimix Vision Toaster $499.00

Inspiration from Alistair Trung

We've been quietly admiring Alistair Trung's amazing new collection as seen on the runways of the RAFW. The colour palette is especially stunning using block colours of blues, greens and yellows. So while we dream of having that gorgeous pleated skirt (as well as those dresses!!) swinging from our own hips, we thought why not dream about beautiful colourful pieces to go in our homes at the same time?

Gorgeous Marine Blue Limoges Tea Cup from $149.00

So why not let our fashion sense influence the way we decorate our homes?
Come into OOP and have a look!!
