Without my husband around this week to coax me out of my food funk, I was left to my own devices which normally means the story would end with me schlepping down the street to pick up my favorite local sushi takeaway.
However, one can never underestimate the power of a good gimicky kitchen product to raise curiosity levels enough to inspire action. In the midst of throwing my hands up in full dramatic despair, my eyes caught sight of a square little box wedged neatly between the raclette maker we drug home from Switzerland, the crepe maker I insisted we adopt in the French Alps last winter and a crock pot that I declared "crucial" to replicating my mom's amazing Thanksgiving stuffing recipe.
spiral slicer gadget that I randomly saw on a You Tube video promising to make me courgette spaghetti so authentic that I would never long for pasta noodles again. Seriously? Never miss pasta? I obviously had to have this little gem of kitchen wizardry!
And the verdict? I'm not sure this little toy will keep ALL my pasta cravings at bay (sometimes there's nothing in the world that can beat a perfectly cooked gnocchi dish) but in terms of your basic angel hair, I'll happily replace it with the courgette version every time.
