The event began with a quick breakfast then it was straight into the cooking demonstration by the fantastic Chef Cara, ably assisted by the ever-lovely Cherry, who provided a little whisking, plenty of chat and lots of fun. Cara’s wonderful recipes included a stunning strawberry and banana smoothie; a multi-layered wild mushroom, spinach and butternut jar pie and a very seasonal autumn trifle with poached pears. It was the starter however, a Beetroot Hummus, with its vibrant pink colour and delicate taste, that seemed to wow everyone the most, winning the vote as the most popular dish of the day.
Then it was the turn of the guests to put their own cooking skills to the test. Our bloggers got stuck in to the task of creating two of the recipes, the jar pie and autumn trifle. Some admitted that they were not keen cooks but were delighted to discover that they could create dishes that looked brilliant and tasted event better. Finally, everyone was invited to relax around the lunch table and enjoy the results of their morning’s work.
Throughout the day, we learnt that many of the bloggers were already glass lovers, with some experimenting with making healthy salads for lunch in a jar and others using glass to dress up their special dinner occasions when hosting meals for friends and family.
The guests were interested to hear that glass is one of the safest forms of packaging because it contains no chemical layers that can leach into the food and drink it contains. It is also of course 100% recyclable without any loss of quality and because it is inert, it keeps food and drink fresher for longer.
