Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.


Help the environment. Put in another oven.

"It's in with double ovens and out with dated laminate ... ," began the article about the Herald Sun Home Show in yesterday's paper (not online). " ... it's more a case of two ovens are better than one when it comes to cooking dinner and dessert at the same time."

The item went on to talk about 'whiz-bang' coffee machines and water coolers. Go ahead. Plug them in! Then:

"There is also a big push towards more energy-efficient homes in a bid to cut power bills and help the environment ... ."

Maybe they carbon neutralise their dinner parties by leaving the lights off, or not having any background music. Or requesting the guests to walk home.
