A few of us went over to Ginja Kitchen Studio in Durban North last week, they teamed up with Fry’s for a meat-free food feast. It was such a fun evening! Instead of standing around watching Chef Jacqui do her thing, she got us all involved in making our own mains.
On Arrival Chef Jacqui had a delicious spread of starters ready for us, all made using different Fry’s Vegetarian products. My favourite was the prawn style tempura with delicious slow roasted tomato and sweet pepper soup, yummy!
After noshing on all the tasty treats and some chit chat, Chef Jacqui put us to work in the Dirty Fork Ginja Kitchen Studio. It is a lovely Masterchef style set up and we were all able to interact and learn from Chef Jacqui. @the_frysguy was there too, mostly taking awkward pictures of me looking like a serial killer.
Myself, GI Jane and Viveshni from Madame Macaron joined forces, which seemed like a great idea at the time but between Jane tweeting up a storm and me trying to be a selfie pro, we almost completely ruined our dish. Thank goodness for Viveshni, who saved our supper and blogger reps.
I had a lovely (and very tasty) time at Ginja, they regularly host classes and foodie events and dinners. If you are interested stay in the loop by following them on twitter @GinjaFood and @dirtyforkstudio. Thanks for another cool food event Fry’s. I’ve learned so many interesting ways to enjoy the products, it has completely transformed the way I view meat alternatives. We eat Fry’s at least once a week now and the Schnitzels and crispy prawns are firm favourites. Check them out @frysFamily
