I love foodie challenges, even when there is no prize involved. When Yuppiechef announced their Spatula Magazine Community Cookathon (cook a three course meal from Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals in a mere half an hour) I had just bought the book through the Yuppiechef online store and just had to participate.
I gamely took on the challenge and, despite being stood up by my dinner companions, submitted my entry to Yuppiechef. All the participants were promised a small gift and a certificate.
Yuppiechef use Berco Express as their courier service, and the chap who works my area is a real delight. When he delivered my last order, my potato ricer, he announced at my gate “I come with a box of Happy!”
Yesterday he once again presented himself, and a box of Happy it was indeed. The ‘small’ gift was a huge and heartstopping Joseph Joseph Index Plus set of chopping boards and knives.
“Designed to reduce the likelihood of cross-contamination of different food types, Index Plus contains four individual chopping boards with four matching knives. Each chopping board is colour-coded and has its own illustrated tab, indicating which food type it should be used for. Each corresponding knife is also colour-coded accordingly. With Index Plus you can prepare vegetables, fish, raw meat and cooked food safely and separately.”
Thank you, Marina and the rest of the gang at Yuppiechef. You never cease to make me smile.
Bring on the next Cookathon, I’m ready to chop!
