Aquarius a monthly magazine by one of the leading print newspaper publications gulf news organized a cook and coffee workshop recently at jashanmal festival city.
As a recipe writer and blogger I love reading magazines and newspapers participating on workshops and events. Very often I go through the gulf news website.
As a person who reads a lot not to mention only books and magazines but also newspapers, I am glad I got a chance to sign up for the cook and coffee workshop by Aquarius and was selected. The main reason why I looked forward for this workshop was to meet the chef, blog about the event and learn all about healthy cooking.
I not only learnt a healthy dish but I also had a great experience which was my first ever bus trip in Dubai and a long walk all the way at the metro and the festival city which helped me burn a few extra calories.
The event was mainly to demonstrate a healthy meal using Kenwood food processor but I would say for me it was a program that taught how to think out of the box and invent new dishes. Cooking is not difficult nor boring for people who try new things.
All the dishes that exist today was invented by people who dint care about things going wrong, they were creative and ended up inventing, this apply not only for culinary arts even other stuff.
The Demonstration was by chef Andy Campbell a very friendly and cheerful personality always answering questions without hesitating.
A lemon tart, chicken burgers, spicy bread with red pepper mayonnaise and basil oil was yummy. It was different and obviously healthy. I can’t wait till I go for my next grocery shopping to get some basil and try out the basil oil and devour with a slice of spicy bread. It was really yummy and delicious.
The Aquarius magazine distributed a bag with a magazine which I really loved. At the end of the program there was a raffle draw and guess what?
I won a prize it is a lovely tea set by dankotuwa. It’s made in Sri Lanka and I am a Sri Lankan too.
Yesterday was such a Nice day with a whole new experience.
