After weeks of preparation as Unilever’s Thanksgiving expert, last week marked the official launch of ‘Season To Taste‘ – an experiential journey through food trends for media and food influencers alike.
For the day, my fellow ambassadors and I took over a stunning warehouse in East London to conduct food demonstrations and talk everyone through the trends. Mine, of course, being the steady takeover of Thanksgiving in the UK: Britsgiving.
With each trend utilising a plethora of products from Maille, Colman’s, Hellmann’s, Knorr and PG Tips, it was fascinating to see how many talented chefs used their kitchen cupboard staples to create delicious new dishes. Guests feasted on everything from the festive Swedish smorgasbords of Skandilicious to the juicy lamb and halloumi wraps of Victus and Bibo (not forgetting my spicy bacon deviled eggs and “the most tender turkey in the world!”).
If sharing a kitchen with Marco Pierre White (the Knorr ambassador) wasn’t already enough, I left the event with a number of new friends, new recipes, and a new stroke of inspiration.
My guests don’t know what’s coming for them this Thanksgiving…
