A Feast across Asia over Lunch

19th June 2011

3 things drove me to book onto the inaugural Grazing Asia lunch…

  1.  A knock-out menu
  2.  Bloggers who were passionate about Asian Food were hosting and
  3.  Profits were donated to Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’

Hosted in Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Foundation’s test-kitchen, this was an informal event, quickly filled up by the hosts’ twitter and blog followers. Each host chose and prepared a dish of their speciality, all colourful, with authentic recipes and sourcing of ingredients. The dessert was supposed to be a green tea pannacotta, however turned out as vanilla. Not in total unison with the rest of the menu, but still a creamy crowd-pleaser. If forced to pick a dish, I’d have to pick Luiz’s tuna dish, because he let the beauty and freshness of the tuna (donated by Fin & Flounder) ‘shine through’. For their first event, I thought it was well organised, executed and a great opportunity to meet other food-lovers. There were opportunities to learn about the dishes as well as socialise with other diners.
