The one problem with immersing myself so much into food? I'm now exposed to so many more cool foods, gadgets and events that my mind is just bursting with things I want to try.
Oh, the gadgets...I've always been a bit of a food gadget girl, even when I wasn't cooking regularly. And I know that more gadgets do not make me a better cook, but you have to admit - some of these things are pretty darn cool.
Here are just a few of the fun food-related items that I'm hoping to (realistically) buy in the next few months. I added "realistically" in there because if my budget was unlimited, this list would definitely be very different! I'm sure this is going to be the first of many posts featuring kitchen gadgets, so if you have any to share, I'd love to hear about them!
Nordic Ware Egg Waffle Pan
|Nordic Ware Egg Waffle Pan from Williams-Sonoma, $49.95 USD|
If you've ever been to Hong Kong (or Pacific Mall in Toronto) then you'll have no problem identifying what this gadget is for. Paul and I LOVE these sweet, doughy egg-balls - we always get a bag whenever we hit Pacific Mall (fresh off the griddle and nice and warm). The idea that I could be making these at home is just too tempting! Thank goodness that I haven't seen this machine in-person yet or I would already own one.

I have no use for this. I've never even tried a sip of absinthe in my life. But, these spoons are just so beautiful!
Cotton Candy Maker
|Retro Series Hard & Sugar-Free Cotton Candy Maker from Nostalgia Electrics|
p.s. I actually want everything on this Nostalgia Electrics page.
Bodum Knife Block
|Bistro Knife Block by Bodum, $49.95 CAD|
This knife storage system is really cool. Whenever I see it in the store, I can't help moving the plastic sticks around. Not only is this a nice-looking knife "block", I love that you can store any sized knife in it.
What about you? Are there any food gadgets/tools that you're looking forward to adding to your kitchen?
