Williams Sonoma Chadstone
Have you been to Williams Sonoma in Chadstone yet? They’re a high end American retailer selling gourmet foods, kitchenwares, housewares, furniture, linens, soaps and specialty foods. The styling in store is beautiful and I challenge you to not covet one of everything! It’s the perfect store to have a browse and they have lots of goodies for Mother’s Day your Mother will love. My favourite are the Bundt tins, I’ve wanted one for a few years now especially the one with the swirly curves, it looks so impressive you only have to decorate it with a sprinkle of icing sugar or a drizzle of icing.
Now that our weather is so cool, I’m going to look into buying a slow cooker, so easy to put all the ingredients in there and then forget about it until dinner time.
Cake mixes to make your life super easy, I’ve sampled the Meyer Lemon Pound Cake mix in store and it was moist with a tangy lemon flavour. Looking forward to trying the Devil’s Food Cake next.
A couple of weeks ago I attended a Mother’s Day Brunch Cooking Event in store. The lovely and talented Susie from Texas showed us how to make some dishes from the Williams Sonoma Breakfast Comforts cookbook, Texas Migas and Corn Waffles as well as some of her own dishes Maple Syrup Bacon, Petite Vanilla Scones and Coffee Bonbons. Susie ran her own bakery in the US and had lots of knowledge to share.
It was very exciting to be welcomed with some scrumptious and beautifully presented cheese platters and lovely drinks, it got the class off to a fun start. Find out about upcoming events by signing up to their mailing list in store.
I love the marble and slate range in store it’s definitely worth checking out, the marble handle cheese knives are a favourite.
Have you made waffles before? I haven’t, I know they’re big in America and more and more people in Australia are making them now. They’d be a nice change from pancakes and you can top them with different poached or fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, yoghurt or even whipped cream if you want to be indulgent on Mother’s Day. This belgian style waffle mix makes a crispy waffle that’s fluffy and light inside.
Susie used one of these Breville Waffle Makers at the class and the waffles turned out perfectly. Making them was a breeze and very easy to clean.
Brushing maple syrup on the bacon and checking if the waffles are done.
These lettered cups would be a lovely gift, curling up by the heater with a mug of tea or soup is always a nice thing to do.
These Autumn wooden platters would make a unique gift, they’re so pretty.
This Friday 8th May, I’m taking over Williams Sonoma Chadstone Instagram account for three days. I’m very excited to show you how I’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day. If you don’t already, follow me on Instagram at @farmhousehome and Williams Sonoma Chadstone at @williamssonomachadstone. Look forward to connecting with you there.
