Chips, salty snacks. Jams,spreads,dried fruits. Authentic Italian Chickpea Flat Bread. I’ve been stuck in a bit of a rut lately when it comes to breakfast which is sad because it’s one of my favorite meals, it starts me off on the right foot in the morning.

Who am I kidding, pretty much any meal of the day is my favorite! But in all seriousness, isn’t it just that little bit easier to leave your cozy bed when you know you have an amazing breakfast waiting for you? Well, leaving my bed has been a bit difficult as of late since one can only eat so much oatmeal, muesli and green smoothies before getting bored. Unless you’re like my husband who can eat the same boring bowl of cereal day in and day out without any issue. With a pantry full of all sorts of grains and seeds, I’ve been experimenting and trying to find ways to use them outside the usual.

You only have to take one look at a Bialetti Moka Pot (or a Maserati, for that matter), to understand why Italian design is so sought after and timeless: suggestive curves and playful angles give it more personality than some people have, and there's a technical simplicity—the kind of thing we like to call "genius" around here.

In the home, where the emotional impact and functionality of a design are perhaps most deeply felt, this kind of one-two punch is highly appreciated. And Italians, of course, excel just as much at interior design as they do coffee and cars. In keeping, we wanted to pause and celebrate this with 15 of our favorite places to shop for Italian home designs. Textiles: Missoni Home.

eat in my kitchen x The Bread Exchange – Roast Apricots on Turmeric Bread : eat in my kitchen

After 7 months of baking my own bread or visiting one of my trusted bakeries, there will be a new monthly sandwich feature on the blog, eat in my kitchen x The Bread Exchange. The Bread Exchange is a trading project started by Malin Elmlid in 2008, she is a master when it comes to baking the perfect sourdough bread. Together we will share our creations on eat in my kitchen, every month she will deliver a loaf of bread to my kitchen and I will turn it into a new sandwich idea. This will be exciting as Malin likes to use the exotic ingredients she gets through trading; turmeric from Iran, vanilla from Madagascar, salt from Israel, charcoal, matcha, the list is long and inspiring! You can’t buy Malin’s bread, you can only trade for it and that makes it all the more special. Last winter Malin asked me if I would like to test cook a couple of the recipes for her first cookbook which will be published this autumn. Now it’s time to talk about sandwiches! Like this:

Hunk o' Fruit: Bill Granger's Oat, Pear, and Raspberry Loaf

All it took was one photo... The Oat, Pear, and Raspberry Loaf is from bills open kitchen (his lack of proper capitalization/punctuation, not ours, we hasten to add) by Bill Granger, and it was the first thing that greeted us as we flipped through this book at a used-book store. The whole grains of the oats and the oozing streak of jammy pear-and-raspberry fruitiness stopped us cold. There was a bright flare of Sydney sunshine that popped off the page; the background was white and hazed out.

We are suckers - we bought the book. Teff Porridge with Pecans, Dates, and Honey Recipe on Food52. Cooking is more fun with friends.
