This morning I woke up to an exciting package from Not Another Bill, a quirky unconventional gift subscription service that surprises you each month with a gift in the post. The whole idea is to brighten up your mailbox with something other than bills!
This month I received a set of beautifully handcrafted Opinel Knives. I absolutely fell in love with the colours and the way the items where packaged. Opinel is a French manufacturer of finely crafted knives, it’s had a long and successful history dating back to the 1980’s and is a staple amongst craftsmen, winemakers and chefs, so it’s certainly a pleasure to be able to get my hand on these.
The package came with 4 knives one for peeling, chopping, separating and sparing – very handy indeed as we all know without a good set of knives things can be pretty sticky in the kitchen. Without wasting much time I put it to the test and started playing around with it, I managed to literally sweep the skin off the lemon in a matter of seconds.
*PS* I also thought I’d make a quick refreshing lemon water with the lemon and lemon zest. You’ll need 1 Lemon, 1 Lime freshly squeezed, with a bit of lemon zest (optional), 1 table spoon of honey and a cup of water mix well strain in using lemon zest, then serve 🙂 simples!
So yes that was my nice little start to the day! Can’t wait to use it in some upcoming recipes which I’ll be featuring on the blog 🙂 to find out more about this subscription service visit NotAnotherBill.com X
