Fry’s Event

11 September 2015

0120624eef5e09c3e96cfd7cd66c9eb6b063b375ebOn Tuesday evening, 8th September, my friend Louise joined me at an event held by Fry’s at Ginger and Lime in Fresnaye, Cape Town. Wow, what an awesome little spot!

Many Yoga teachers and students are veering towards a more vegetarian and / or vegan lifestyle and Fry’s has been in the market for over 20 years offering a meat free alternative to your regular meat food options.

 

01baaaac7709b0465b5a50b6465934f89ad9730887There was a wide selection of attendees, from chefs, food stylists, photographers, editors to sustainable living and designing developers. Denise and Elmo from Ginger and Lime were our hosts for the night. They opened up their kitchen and we joined in all the activities, prepping, cooking and of course all the eating of the goodies we made. What was lovely about this evening was that it was in a relaxed and fun setting, as if you were hanging out at your best friend’s house cooking up a storm for the whole family, (it kind of reminded me of that movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”).

We were treated to a 5 course meal… that’s right, no going hungry at this event. The menu included:

  • Glazed chicken-style skewers with a Thai cold satay sauce
  • Butternut wrap with meat free strips
  • A vietnamese spicy “mince” with Asian salad and a miso dressing,
  • An Asian coconut and lime broth with pak choy, mushrooms, noodles and chicken-style balls
  • A tomato, aubergine, olive and caper salad with spicy sausage.
    The main  was a Thai curry with meat free prawns and green vegetables. Of course ending with a dessert of grilled pineapple slices with ice cream.

Thanks to Brett and Fry’s for the invite, the goodie bag and for inspiring me to get back into the kitchen to cook up a storm! To Louise, my partner in crime for joining me at this event and the team at Ginger and Lime for opening up their home, kitchen and hearts and for sharing all their culinary expertise with us.
