Being a big fan of kitchen gadgets, I was pleased to be invited to an event showcasing some of the latest kitchen appliances. The evening was hosted by Currys, the electrical store, and was held at a lovely little cookery school in London, the Underground Cookery School. The theme of the evening was making a curry (!) and some pear soufflés, as well as a couple of delicious cocktails.
We were treated to canapes, freshly whizzed vegetable smoothies and flowing glasses of bubbly before splitting into two groups to make the curry and soufflés.
After de-boning some chicken legs, we cooked the coconut sauce for the curry. When finished, it was popped into the ovens and we moved on to soufflé making. This involved plenty of egg cracking and whisking, before the mixture went into individual soufflé dishes. Cocktail making followed, caipirinhas and pina coladas - very refreshing! Then it was dinner time, with much snapping and admiring of the food we had made before tucking in.
The appliances were used to make the different parts of the meal, although we didn't actually get to use them ourselves as the pastes and sauces were already made for us!
Currys were very generous and gave away the appliances to happy bloggers who had tweeted and posted the best tweets/photos. I got to meet some lovely new foodies and had a most enjoyable evening.
The Underground Cookery School is available for private hire, hen parties and corporate group sessions, they also have recipes and cooking videos on their website.
Currys have written their own blog post on the evening which you can read here.
Disclosure: I attended the event as a guest of Currys, all views are my own.
