Breville Coffee

Breville coffee and baking time

As the year is coming to a close I’m reflecting on the very busy year we’ve had at Kitchen To The Table. We've undergone a major facelift, a relocating and even a name change. We are so grateful to this community whom for over 17 years has continued to make us part of your shopping regimen. Our customers are what drive us to do better and grow with every year. Without our customers, who consciously support local businesses, none of what you see at Kitchen To The Table would be. With thanks and gratitude we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Joyful 2016.

The Breville Barista ExpressIn this newsletter we hope you will find a bit of everything. There are some gift ideas, items for your kitchen at this time of year and even some bits and pieces that would fit nicely into a stocking.

The Breville Barista Express

The Barista Express, with its integrated conical burr grinder and dosing control, helps deliver the optimum path for beans to espresso in under a minute, ensuring a smooth and thick créma.

The measured dose is delivered straight into the coffee filter to maximize luscious créma with every extraction. In other words: the bees knees of coffee makers.

$699.99 ($799.99 regular)

Frothing Jug

StaybowlizerThis frothing jug by Danesco is made of a heavy weight stainless steel. It has a plastic handle and a pouring spout.

If you want to be a Barista at home you’ll need on of these.
Two ways to make froth for European coffees:

  1. Use frothing jug with an espresso machine that has a steam wand built in.
  2. Use a good quality frothing jug on the stovetop to heat the milk and an electric frothing wand to incorporate air into the milk.



Consider the Staybowlizer your ‘third hand’ in the kitchen! This is a universal tool that secures bowls of all shapes and sizes from unwanted movement using a patented suction-lock design. This toy supports mixing bowls, it can be a trivet to protect counters and tables and it can also convert your existing pots into a double boiler. If you know someone who bakes then this is a great new gift.

Westmark Bundt PanWestmark Bundt Pan

Bundt recipes, first made popular in the 1950’s and 60’s, are certainly making a come back. Bundt cakes do not conform to any single recipe; instead their characterizing feature is their shape. A Bundt pan generally has fluted or grooved sides, but its most defining design element is the central tube or "chimney" which leaves a cylindrical hole through the center of the cake. The design means that more of the mixture touches the surface of the pan than in a simple round pan, helping to provide faster and more even heat distribution during cooking.



Gadgets for the Kitchen

Blossom Trivet

Blossom is a new anti-scratch, silicone, flower shaped kitchen gadget that is not only functional, it's beautiful. Use as a trivet, hot pad around bowls, coaster or table decoration. Mix them up and add them together. Get creative!
