๐Ÿ˜ Food Truck Fridays ๐Ÿ˜

Last night we had the privilege to go to our first Food Truck Friday in Johannesburg. I had managed to get two free tickets for Tristan and I and so we decided to brave the cold and rainy weather to give it a try. We had wanted to go so that we could try good food and share our experience with all our followers.To be honest I was not in mood to go because of having a really, really bad day at work. Our company informed us of possible retrenchments however it was the best decision we made. After battling to find the place we finally arrived cold, tired and hungry.

We walked around looking at all the Food Trucks that were there and what they had to offer we decided to go back to the truck that we had seen first called Kitchen Kid and again it was the best decision ever made. We ordered the Pastrami on Rye something that we would never normally order. We normally go for tacos or burgers and Chips but we decided to try something different. Oh boy was it a good decision. To say there food is out of this world does not even begin to describe how good it was. Sadly the pictures we took do not do it Justice. If ever you find yourself at a market in Johannesburg and you see them there give them a try. Not only is there food good, it’s affordable and there customer service is brilliant. They also do events.

We then went with our awesome food and sat down to listen to the most amazing music.

All I can say is my day went from bad to amazing.

Please note we are not being paid for this review and so it is our honest and true experience of an awesome night with good food.

Hirsch’s Cooking Demo

On the 29th of November 2017 I had the honor and privilege of attending the launch of the Whirlpool Jetchef product at the Hirsch’s Homestore in Four ways. Where the held a cooking demo hosted by the Whirlpool brand ambassador and owner of Blackcurrant events and Catering Chef Lebo Mpuong. The event was an all round Success, in my opinion as it had amazing food that was prepared by Chef Lebo by using the Jetchef. The food was better than I imagined in every way possible. The event itself was well thought out and the staff were very friendly. 

The Jetchef Product is new to the whirlpool range and has already made an impression on everyone including me due to its convenience. Whirlpool also has a range of other diverse products which makes it even more brilliant and a must have as they are all just as easy to use and convenient I had such an amazing time and I hope I can go to their next demo in the near future.

I have included one of the recipes made below.

Destination Christmas

On the 17 November we went to the lighting of the Christmas Trees in Melrose Arch and were blessed to listen to some South African singers – Loyiso Bala, Tshedi from Malaika, Harry Sideropolus and the award winning soweto gospel choir. They sang the most amazing christmas songs and they bought their own unique sound to it.

We just had to record it so that we could share this experience with you. I apologize for any poor sound quality.

All rights go to their respective owners. We were merely just visitors to this awesome event we did not take part in any execution of this event and the things that happened during the event. The credit goes to Melrose Arch and the incredible that put on an amazing show for everyone. We only just filmed the video. This was not in collaboration with Melrose Arch.  If you are in the joburg area of south africa head on over there for your christmas shopping and check out the lights.
