As summer is finally on its way, and our showrooms across the North West are lit (intermittently!) by glorious golden sunlight, the Kitchen Design Centre team are all spending a lot more time in the kitchen – whether we’re readying for a Father’s Day feast, trying out things we’ve seen on Great British Bake Off or simply whipping up a fresh summer salad.
In the spirit of the seriously good summer eating on the way, we’ve put our heads together and come up with ideas to help you spruce up your kitchen for summer. Read on for a few ways to bring the best out your kitchen and get the summer off to a great start.
If you’re like us and your shelves are littered with tins of out-of-date beans, half-opened jars of olives, and left-over Christmas pickles– well, nothing will make your kitchen feel cleaner than a good old clear-out.
Not only will everything look lighter and more summery, you’ll make some well-needed space for classic summer foods, like fish, fruit and salad vegetables.
Talking about salads – if you’ve been holed up throughout the winter months subsisting on shepherds’ pie and casserole, it’s likely your salad crockery is gathering dust on a shelf somewhere.
Dust those dishes down and get ready to pile them full of rocket, lettuce, baby spinach, radish and spring onion. There’s a smashing set of summer salad recipes here, courtesy of the BBC – we have it on good authority that their Niçoise is not to be missed.
Sorbets are all the rage this summer – healthier and more elegant than ice-cream, they take a bit of finesse when combining the ingredients but are an impressive way to end a summer meal.
You’ll undoubtedly want to clear room in the fridge/freezer when you taste this mouth-watering recipe from the Guardian. Neff Freezers come in a variety of carrying capacities, so you won’t worry about running out of sorbet-space any time soon!
If your idea of sprucing up a kitchen is slightly more radical why not consider one of Kitchen Design Centre’s fantastic ex display kitchens?
