In 2007 I had my first taste of the "Whisk & Pin" products when I came across their stall at the 2007 Sydney Good Food & Wine Show. It is not everyday that you come across an artisan business that has become famous on muesli alone. Their handmade gourmet muesli and cookies have fast become a rage amongst serious foodies here in Australia. With a whisk and pin for a logo, the stress on organic handmade products and a fabulously simple yet kitsch packaging, owner Kerry Caloyannidis strikes all the right cords. I can rave about their organic muesli range till kingdom come but their baking mixes are what really gets my cooking juices flowing. I bought a couple of their organic baking mixes at the food show and have loved them. They are simple to make and have a subtly rich flavour riddled with spices and organic fruits. If you follow the instructions on their glazed white packaging to a T, you will end up with exactly what was promised to you, which is a great thing as most instructions on read-mixes don’t know what they are talking about. Loved the scones, loved the cupcakes but the pancakes … oh my, you should really try them. The Blueberry pancakes I made turned out to be light and fluffy, the texture just right and the taste so breakfasty. I topped them up with some gorgeous blueberries and maple syrup.
