PRODUCTS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SCHOOL As well as the books we stock a small amount of kitchen and pantry items for sale. We know these work well because we use them daily and test them to make sure they fulfil the requirements of keen cooks. They must be not only useful but also reliable and make ideal gifts for hard-to-buy friends, clients or colleagues who love to cook. Baking sheets of hi-tech silicone (Per sheet, $18 plus $10 packing & postage) Nothing sticks to this baking sheet which can be used over and over and in the long run is far more economical than buying baking paper. Just dip into the sink in warm water and wipe dry. Put it on your baking tin when cooking sticky pumpkin, a chicken or any kind of meat, biscuits or meringues. Its uses are endless. Barbecue sheets (Per Sheet $25 plus $10 packing & postage) As above but thicker and stronger so it can be put over the barbecue to prevent marinated meats from sticking. Not suitable for an open flame you just cut it to size and when you have cooked, dip it into a bucket of soapy water and brush all the mess away. Also wonderful to carry in the car for picnics when you may have to use a public barbecue which is usually not left clean. Fold and Flip cutting boards (Two sheets $18 plus $10 packing & postage) Made in the blue and yellow colours of the school, these flexible-chopping boards can be lifted easily so you can flip your chopped food into a saucepan without any fuss. There are two in each package so one can be kept for meats or food which has strong smells such as garlic; the other can be kept for cutting fruits, cakes or sweets. Pink Salt ($5 per 100g packet plus $6 packing & postage) We have a stock of salt from the underground saline waters of the Murray Darling Basin. Flaky and pale pink in colour this is pure and free from any contamination or chemicals. Not only does it have a wonderful fresh salty taste so you don‟t need to use very much; this salt contains natural minerals of potassium and magnesium which are beneficial elements and assist in the absorption of calcium. This also makes a great inexpensive present. Knives ($7.50 per knife, plus $6 packing and postage). Small red serrated Swiss knives. The best tiny sharp knife we know.
