One of its best features is the compost bin in the scene of the island. The wood surface can be used as a chopping board but so far I've not taken a knife to the beautiful surface!
Perhaps, most importantly, it's proving to be a cool place to cook this heatwave summer -so nice to see so much of the garden from a room we spend lots of time in.
Off now for a cup of tea and meringue -the inevitable byproduct of keeping hens and having new oven that need cheating out!!!
