A Perfect Tin

I've been taking cooking classes from an Italian chef who I can barely understand. But midway through our chocolate tart preparation, I fully understood he needed corn flour [of which my pantry had none!]. Last night I swooped up a can of Brown & Polson and while I'm pretty certain I will never go through 400g worth of corn flour in this lifetime, how could I resist another perfectly designed tin?

Um, that sounds like so much fun! And you can make a game out of trying to figure out what he's saying!

Sweet tin, now if only you could use up all that flour...

A lovely tin! Please post one of your creations with the Italian chef! What a wonderful opportunity!

A few things:

1) I hope you'll share some of what you're learning.

2) Empty the tin contents into tupperware.

3) Use tin as flower vase!

That is beautiful. I love old tins and especially love to fill them with flowers on a windowsill.
