I had to giggle during the introduction to the event when the audience was told there were “bloggers” in attendance. I always wonder what people think when they hear that… are they looking out the corners of their eyes for the cliché, pasty-faced, dressed all in black, never-see-the-sunlight, monitor tanned weirdos? I wonder if they realise that the row of people who are almost constantly head down and typing furiously on their phones or tablets during presentations are actually expected to do so, and aren’t just being rude… 🙂 ?! And I am always amazed that a group of people who spend so much time on their cameras, phones and tablets at events like this one, can have quite so much fun! We had the people around us in stitches at our antics and I went home in a very good mood indeed.
Joining me at Pick n Pay’s Good Food Studio was @KerryHaggard, @gnat_j and @badtennis_, and I met @nomnom_cupcake too! We had so much fun! The presentations from Fresh Living’s chefs were fabulous to watch and learn from! I got some awesome tips for when next I feel adventurous in the kitchen, and they always make it look so easy! So what did we eat? The starter was quince and blue cheese phyllo parcels with a divine avo and baby marrow salad, then the mains was a slow-roasted shoulder of lamb with salsa verde and lemon and parmesan risotto, and then we had chocolate truffles and lemon tart for dessert! This was after the Simonsberg cheese platter and a wine tasting! I couldn’t finish my food! ME!!! I was flabbergasted!! And let me tell you… I didn’t eat again until around 10am Sunday morning!
