Yesterday there was a knock at my door, when I opened it the UPS man was waving at me from the elevator and a box was sitting on my doorstep. Mmmmmmm what could this be? Usually I assume everything is for Neil, so it’s always a nice surprise when it’s for me! This box was from Brooklyn Kitchen so my excitement was palpable, I got a knife and opened the box in short order. What I found in this box confounded me, for two reasons: I had no idea what they* were or who they came from. No where on the package did it say…happy birthday from ….
The box contained two packages of various sized Abeego Flats. Now if you are anything like me you might ask: What the hell is an Abeego Flat? They are an outback destination in Australia or a coffee drink, they are these super ingenious all natural way to package and store food.
It’s been decades since I bought plastic wrap, I strive for a plastic free kitchen even though that seems impossible as people are constantly challenging me by bringing things over in, yes you guessed it, plastic bags! I reuse them to cover dough or left overs, it’s not exactly pretty, but it serves a purpose and it prevents me from having to buy plastic wrap. Now with Abeego the world can be liberated from plastic wrap forever! Here’s what they say on their website about what Abeego is:
Abeego is the original reusable food storage, handcrafted with an authentic blend of beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil infused into fabric made of hemp and cotton. The natural attributes of each ingredient used to create Abeego contributes to a smart food storage that keeps food fresh and tasting delicious. Store your food the way nature intended with our stylish Abeego Flats, Abeego Wrap and Abeego Snack.
And best of all it’s made in Canada. It looks like you can order direct from their website or check out your favorite kitchen store and see if they carry them, and if not ask them to start carrying them! In NYC, obviously Brooklyn Kitchen has them And for those of you who are Brooklyn-phobes, Brooklyn Kitchen is opening up a new store in Manhattan!
I digress, check out these videos and let me know what you think, and I will keep you updated as I begin to use mine.
Oh and I am going to make a guess as to who sent me these, but if I am wrong and you are reading, please let me know, that is if it isn’t Natan.
