If you aren’t familiar with HelloFresh, you must have been growing your own food for the past few years. So many of my friends use Hello Fresh which delivers ‘cook from scratch’ meal plans straight to your door, with easy-to-follow-recipe cards and high quality, pre-portioned fresh ingredients. The key thing here is there is no food wastage and the cost is much less than you think it would be!!
Anyway, they have just launched FreshMeets, a series of fun, informative and interactive
culinary experiences to get your foodie juices flowing.
The first in the series, Spice Up Your Life, which my husband and I went along to.
Patrick Drake, Head Chef and co-founder of HelloFresh said
“We’re really excited to launch FreshMeets and it’s really fitting that we’ve chosen Spice as our first theme. At HelloFresh, we’re focused on delivering delicious dishes with a twist that take the customer around the world on their plate, using a medley of spices and interesting ingredients. We don’t think spice should be something to be scared off – it can add so much variety to a dish. We hope through this event we’ll be able to share our passion for all things spice. Plus we get to support one of our favourite charities, The Felix Project at the same time.”
