Wendi and I went to the Good Food & Wine Show at Coca Cola Dome this morning. We had a blast.
First off we managed to get in for free, as we walked in we were given comp tickets even though we dont own a restaurant or catering company. I think the guy in charge was quite taken with my preggy belly 🙂
Once inside we grabbed our goodie bags and proceeded to have an amble around.
Everything was amazing, I skipped the wine stands, while Wends had a frozen cocktail and an Amurula while we wondered around. We did taste some of the most amazing chocolates and nougats and some awesome Fry’s chicken style nuggets and chicken style strips which I we both bought after pledging to Meatless Mondays.
I also bought the cutest pastry brush, Aaron had used my last one as a paint brush and I desperately needed to replace it. This one from Head Chefs is just too awesome.
Along with the Fry’s and the pastry brush I bought an awesome seed set and some compostable pots to plant them in. This was the main reason we went to the expo as Wendi’s mom had told her about this amazing product.
Reel Gardening is an truly inspirational concept and I was hooked as soon as I read through their website. I cant wait to plant the seeds I bought! I bought a starter pack of herbs, about 8 varieties, cant wait to be able to harvest them!
All in all we spent a fantastic two or so hours wondering around and indulging our pallets and senses.
I highly recommend a visit if you are in Jozi this weekend.
