October Product Picks


This month's product picks are different to usual, but still on the food theme. It’s a round up of some beautiful kitchenware / tableware pieces.

I thought I’d mix things up this month and share something a bit different.

And as it’s October I thought some of you might be starting to think about Christmas presents (or is it just me?!) so I thought some of these products might give you a bit of inspo for gift ideas.

Here’s this month’s picks…

Fortnum & Mason Netherton Foundry Pan

I recently bought this pan* because I was looking for one that I could use on my Kamado Joe for slow cooking. This is a really versatile pan though and I’ll use it for so much more than BBQing… it can go on the hob, in the oven, under the grill, and can be used at high temperatures too. It’s a bit of an investment, but it’s a pan that will last for years.

The pan is made with 99.1% pure iron that is sourced from Shropshire and its neighbouring counties. It’s also naturally non-stick, and no chemicals or PTFE are used in the coating.

John Lewis Bubble Glass Tumbler

How nice are these glasses* from John Lewis?! They are designed with bubbles floating in the glass, and are available in 3 colours - blue, amber and green.

I’m a big fan of different coloured glasses and have a few in my cupboards. I think the bubble design makes these a bit more interesting than just a plain option.

Etsy Olive Oil Bottle

This beautiful olive oil bottle* is handmade in a studio on Dartmoor in Devon.

I love the pink colour, but it's also available in four other colours so there’s one to suit all kitchens. And it comes in 2 sizes, but as I get through A LOT of olive oil, I’ll be opting for the larger bottle.

Habulous ceramics make these - check out their Etsy shop here to see all the other amazing products they make.

Glassette XL Serving Board

A large serving board is something that is missing from my kitchen cupboards, and this XL board from Glassette might just have to be the one that I buy. Each one are made to order, and is available in either Ash, Oak or Walnut.

It would be perfect for canapés, a cheese board, or for serving a meze board at the start of a dinner party. It’s something you would use a lot!

This board comes from Wood Edit, who hand craft every board at their workshop in West Sussex, and they are all made using responsibly sourced wood.

North Home Cappuccino Mug

If you’re new to North Home, they are my favourite homeware shop in Leeds. They sell a beautifully curated range of products, and whenever I visit I want to buy EVERYTHING!

I recently got a couple of these mugs, and they are my new favourite tea mugs. Each HKLiving mug is slightly different due to the handmade finish. And I love the warm colours.

Trouva The Organic Company Napkins

These napkins* are made from 100% organic cotton, and come in a range of natural earthy colours.

The Organic Company is based in Denmark, and was founded with the principles of combining good design with responsible and sustainable materials.

I switched to material napkins a few years ago and haven’t bought any paper ones since!

Selfridges Be Home Marble Salt Cellar

This salt cellar* would look beautiful in any kitchen, and I think would also be a wonderful little Christmas gift. It is made of 100% marble, and comes with a little wooden spoon.

Be Home was founded in 2005, with the aim of creating handmade and seasonal furnishings, and they use planet-conscious materials such as reclaimed wood.

Etsy Vegetables Print

I have this vegetables poster* in my kitchen, and I love it! It is a remastered Giclée print, and is professionally printed by Pink Polar Bear Art in Carmarthenshire in Wales.

It is available in 10 different sizes, and there’s a choice of different finishes too with either a light ivory finish, or antique paper to give it an warmer older feel.
