My mum similarly always had plain flour, bicarb soda and cream of tartar in the pantry; never baking powder or self-raising flour. :-)

Lucy

Yes, yes Cindy! SR flour and plain flour is kinda unnecessary, especially if you only bake from time to time. Mum's, eh? So sensible.

the silver on silver is just wonderful..just a sight difference is a challenge

Great idea. It reminds me of my mum's old kitchen too. I'm a little daunted by my little pantry and fridge at the moment. Boy it needs some paring back.

Elaine

I vaguely recall learning this in my high school home economics class.

Lovely photo, Lucy. I bet each spoon has an interesting story.

I love the ornate spoon on the far right, but the blue one intrigues me.

Bryan

Hi. I just discovered your blog. Very lovely pictures and stories. : )

Angie

I couldn't agree more with that quote, especially the bit about the after taste.

This is so interesting. I was peering at my Cream of tartar the other day and wondering what role it played in the chemistry of cooking. In the list of ingredient on the tin it said: cream of tartar. I then looked at the baking powder list of ingredients and was shocked. Beautiful spoons.

I love the sentiment behind Edna Lewis' words. I also sympathise with your comments about measurements. I didn't realise us Aussies were different until I was given a funky set of red kitchenaid measuring spoons!

Lucy

Hi, all. Been away from the 'puter for a few days...sometimes it's hard to keep up...

Thanks for all your comments and input, and welcome Bryan, Angie and Sally!

Suse, that spoon on the right was given to me when I was a baby - it has a story attached to it and the rose filligree. Must dig it out.

And Ali-K, it's kinda crazy, no? Your funky red measuring spoons sound wonderful. A photo, perhaps?? Would love to see them.
