Out And About: Friday 11 July 2014

Last Friday night were out and about at 96 Winery Road to pit beer against wine. Dave and I decided that the wine worked best with the meal as a whole but I can totally understand why you would order mussels and beer at lunch time! We had a really great meal and a fantastic evening and I am looking forward to going to the whisky evening next month.

Yesterday I attended the #knorrexperience function courtesy of KnorrWe were warmly welcomed with canapés before listening to a very interesting talk by Megan Pentz-Kluyts who said “health is delicious”. I could not agree more with this statement. We enjoyed a tomato and lentil soup to start as well as the most divine blue cheese I have tasted for some time. We then teamed up and went to cook. My team made a sundried tomato, butternut and baby spinach pasta as well as a couscous and roasted vegetable salad. Once everyone had cooked their meals we sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labour. I must say, the dishes I tried were all good. Dessert was an apple tarte tatin which was scrummy to say the least. I was sent home with a huge goody bag! Thank you to the entire team for a great event.
