This is my out and about post for Friday 30 May 2014 when I was in Camps Bay for the launch of Peppadew’s new range of pasta sauces.
Out And About: Friday 30 May 2014

Last week on Friday 30 May, I was out and about at the launch of Peppadew’s new range of pasta sauces. We were shown just how easy the sauces are to prepare – basically open the jar, add to the pan and heat. There are many great advantages to these sauces – they can be used for more than pasta and they can be left in the fridge for 4 days after opening. This is perfect for a 2 person household. After a kitchen demonstration we had lunch on the patio overlooking Camps Bay! I was sent home with a bottle of each sauce and the most stunning spaghetti spoon!


Peppadew Pasta Sauce Launch

Disclosure: I was invited to attend this event. My invitation was not based on me posting about Peppadew Pasta Sauces. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

I enjoyed a lot of biltong this weekend as on Saturday I went to order some sausage casings and came home with biltong. Dave went up on Sunday to collect the casings – they weren’t there as promised but he did come home with some more biltong. On Monday I went to collect the casings and yes, I came home with some more biltong. If you live in the Helderberg basin pop down to Mountain Stream Nursery in Gordons Bay and visit Rudi’s for the best biltong around.

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I are busy building a house which is an adventure all in itself. Each year we visit a new place overseas to experience the food of the area. Follow along on our adventures!

  • Don't think I have ever used a pasta sauce from a bottle before. Your spoon is gorgeous.
    Have a wonderful weekend Tandy.

    • I am so looking forward to using these sauces for the nights I do not feel like cooking :)

  • I had to google what biltong was...ah! got it!
    I use pasta sauces often when camping. Nice spoon!

    ela h.

    • Sorry Ela, I really must remember not all of my readers are familiar with what we eat here in South Africa ;)

  • I really like how these sauces can be left in the fridge for up to 4 days and are still usable. I hate wasting stuff! Or when I find a bottle of moldy sauce in the back of the fridge!!

  • That spaghetti spoon is beautiful! I'm unfamiliar with bitlong. I googled it and if I'm right it is similar to our jerky, a dried meat . Is that correct?

    • It is similar to jerky but not exactly the same. I should try and post a blog about it :)

  • It is so hot here in HK and even with the aircon on. These kinds of days it is perfect with a little pasta sauce and some sauces. It is so hot today, I don't want to even boil pasta.. LOL

  • What a fantastic launch to be invited to, who doesn't love good sauce?!

  • Biltong is so delicious! Such a shame I couldn't bring it into Australia as we loved the ones that we tried there :)

    • I have seen so many people spending their whole flight to Australia eating the biltong they had set aside to bring for friends :)

  • Sounds like a very pleasant way to spend a morning, Tandy. I think the Tomato and Basil would be my first pick. :)
