Newsletter Competition

I am so excited to announce that this month’s prize is a KitchenAid MINI Stand Mixer in Guava Glaze!

Do I have an irrational love for a piece of kitchen machinery? Define irrational.

My girl, Betty, (my 4.8L Kitchenaid) and I have been in a loving co-dependant relationship for the past 5 years, when my Mum and Dad surprised me (understatement of the century) with her beautiful ‘cranberry’ self one Christmas morning. It was the first Christmas since my brother had moved to Dubai, leaving my Mum and Dad feeling a tad blue and obviously desperate to uphold the affections of their only other child to avoid her from even remotely contemplating leaving the country – cue the most ridiculously generous gift and a very grateful Katie Pix.

That morning, thinking Mum and Dad had already outdone themselves with the Trivial Pursuit 90s addition, new socks and a sewing box (yes, I am a 1920s stereotype of a housewife), we swiftly finished present unwrapping and began clearing away so we could move onto our traditional smoked salmon and scrambled eggs brekkie. Tidying away the strewn remnants of wrapping, Mum paused and pointed out a box behind the sofa – ‘Oh, Katie, it looks like there’s one more present’. Feeling as if Santa Claus had just revealed himself, I anxiously peeled back the paper to unveil Betty the KitchenAid. Oh. My. Goodness.

Now, I’m sure I was not alone when I thought the only justifiable time to be gifted a KitchenAid was on your Wedding Day, or if you are super successful and can afford to treat yourself. I’d seen it a million times on ‘The Great British Bake Off’, circled it in every John Lewis catalogue I’d ever browsed and plotted several burglaries of my next door neighbours, but all of a sudden… one actually belonged to me! Was I worthy? Or (more concerning) would I use this icon of the baking world enough to warrant its hefty price tag?

Yes. Absolutely, yes.
