I’ll be there, so be sure to say hi!
3 Eat In Ultimate Foodie Shopping Guides up for grabs
In the magazine’s own words:
It’s a big, glossy directory of all the best specialty stores across South Africa to shop for produce and gear for the home cook and entertainer. It includes more than 850 listings in a variety of categories – bakeries, butcheries, delis, cooking schools, markets and more. As always, the magazine will also showcase must-anticipated results of the Eat In Produce Awards.
This year’s issue talk to three main themes: locavores (people buying and eating locally produced produce and supporting local businesses), foraging (living off the land, which is closely tied to the aforementioned) and smart shopping. The latter refers to knowing (and equipping people) where and how to shop to get the best and quickest results in the kitchen. It celebrates the notion of spending more time shopping for ingredients and produce than cooking or preparing it. As a result, the magazine not only supplies lists of the best places to shop, but also solutions in terms of quick-to-prepare recipes, clever short cuts and the best ready-made and deli-bought products.
Just leave a comment and a copy could be yours!
Winners: Congrats to Lori, Julie and Pink Polka- an email is on it’s way to you!
Disclosure: I was asked by Eat In to write a few words about the awards. I intended to go to the event, so was a pleasure to put their best foot forward.
