Friday 11 July: This past week we have been out and about to 96 Winery Road and I have been to a function showcasing Knorr products.
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 Knorr. We were warmly welcomed with canapés before listening to a very interesting talk by Megan Pentz-Kluyts who said “health is delicious”. I couldn’t 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.
Disclosure: I was invited to attend this event by Verve Marketing and Communication and my invitation was not conditional of me posting about it. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
