GIVEAWAY in collaboration with Maggie Beer
GIFTS & GIVEAWAYS
Celebrating the end of the year with a series of gifts and giveaways for our readers. A virtual Christmas party and our way of saying thank you for your love and support over the past 6ish years, as well as a further opportunity to showcase some of our favourite people, products and places in the process.
My love affair with all things Maggie Beer kicked into overdrive after my recent trip to South Australia and her farm shop in the Barossa Valley. Just prior to departing for SA, I received a little care package from Maggie in the mail. It included her latest and to me most impressive cookbook to date, Maggie’s recipes for life.
A cookbook, I’m looking forward to casing aka reviewing from cover to cover over the holidays. It includes 200 delicious recipes to help reduce your chances of Alzheimer’s and other lifestyle diseases. The book ties Maggie’s passion for sharing delicious, simple food with her ongoing dedication for improving the health and nutrition of older people.
The farm shop and the new on site restaurant that opened the same week as my visit, were a real highlight of my SA trip. During my time at the farm, I was able to attend a Verjuice cooking demonstration in the new demo kitchen. After the demonstration, we were able to feast on the creations and have photos taken, funnily enough, in the old kitchen that features in The Cook & the Chef TV series.
I waddled away from the demonstration with a new and improved opinion of Verjuice. The bottle of verjuice I’ve had sitting in my pantry since last Christmas not really knowing what to do with it, was lucky to see the week out on my return home.
I honestly had no idea just how versatile this product is. Without a doubt, it is now a pantry staple in my place, with Maggie’s Verjuice mushrooms and veggies on high rotation at meal times and Maggie’s Verjuice recipe book is high on my Christmas wish list, as are most of Maggie’s hampers.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS… MAGGIE BEER
I often joke at this time of year (well anytime of year actually) that I would love for Maggie to adopt me or at the very least invite me for Christmas lunch. Seriously though, all I really want for Christmas is to spend time with my immediate family. Being a family of five foodies that time is usually best spent at the dinner table over a nice meal. If that meal includes a Maggie Beer product or 12 via a hamper found under the tree Christmas morning… all the better.
