Blogger Day & A Cookery Masterclass
It was almost a month ago that I was invited to attend a blogger day + a cookery masterclass organised by Finish that was held in London. Before I attended the event, I was sent a packet of Finish Quantum Powerball to try out. I have always been using Finish dishwasher tablet and of course was delighted! I love how it leaves all the plates and cutleries clean and smelling great; stubborn grease and oil on stainless steel pots and pans are easily get rid of too!
I stepped into a very nicely decorated Georgian house with a well-lit and big kitchen that I would dream of! Quite a number of bloggers were already there by the time I arrived – socialising and enjoying some French pastries with hot drinks to start the day. It was nice to have met some familiar faces and new ones too!
We were very lucky to have Florence Knight, the head chef of Polpetto to give us cooking demo throughout the day. We were shown how to make Tiramisu, octopus served with new potatoes, meatball in tomato sauce and Burrata salad.
One of my favourites has to be the Burrata salad. Burrata is made from mozzarella and cream – where the outer shell is mozzarella and inside is a mixture of mozzarella and cream. It has such creamy and soft texture and a lot more rich than mozzarella. For those who love creamy cheese, you will love this a lot! Florence decided to serve Burrata with blood orange and an olive oil & herb dressing. It makes me long for a warm summer day!
Octopus with new potato is another of my favourite. How can a seafood lover say no to octopus? I have never purchased a whole octopus before and really would love to try out a few different recipes using octopus. It may not be everyone’s favourite as it may be chewy if not cooked properly. But, for me I totally love octopus!
It was overall a very fun day – mingling, learning, cooking and eating! A huge thank you to all the staff at Finish and the photographer of the day Charlotte (I love my portrait that you took!)
