Kuhn Rikon Balloon Whisk

It’s that time of year again when we move indoors and get cooking and baking for the holidays!

We’ve found a compact spiralizer, an inspiring cookbook from our friends the Food Gays plus a couple of handy (and colourful) kitchen items to have on hand for various prep tasks.

Have a turn with this compact, easy to care for Cuisinart spiralizer to create pretty ribbons of zucchini, carrots, sweet potato, apples, firm pears, onions, seedless cucumbers, and more. You can even create veggie chips to pair with some tasty hummus or seasonal dips.
