At first glance, this might look like a rather strange kitchen essential-particularly when I tell you I'm not even recommending it for making tea!
This metal tea strainer is a perfectly proportioned miniature sieve. Great for sifting small amounts of cocoa or icing sugar, especially if you are making individual servings.
(Perfect for a sprinkling of chocolate powder on a cappuccino too).
If you are going to make the heavenly
"Apple Filo Pie" I posted the recipe for earlier this week, this little gadget will help you to achieve an accurate and professional finish.
It reminds me of something you might buy for a child's play kitchen and for that reason alone I find it rather appealing!
