To add to the excitement for next weekend's Foodie Market at Taste of Hong Kong presented by Standard Chartered 2017 (taking place at Central Harbourfront on 16–19 March 2017), below is our fun-tastic line-up of workshops that will take place during the market:
Chia Granola Parfait and Granola Pops with Amazin' Graze
Build (and bring home!) your own chia granola parfait with tips and advice from Amazin' Graze's amazin' experts at the 1–2pm workshop on Saturday, 18 March 2017. Making the perfect grab-and-go breakfast, the light parfait is incredibly nutritious and so easy to throw together that anyone who knows the recipe can easily recreate it at home. Workshop attendees will be able to tailor their creations to their own tastes and preferences using the variety of toppings provided.
Turn granola into lollipops at the granola pops workshop at 1–2pm on Sunday, 19 March. This version of the traditional cake pop is much healthier – making it an ideal snack for kids to bring to school – but just as fun to eat. Save your tasty creations for later or gobble them down on the spot like we would.
Energy Chocolate Balls and Cocoroons with Food for Life
Choose between an opportunity to make your own cocoroons (at 8:30–9:30pm on Friday, 17 March) or energy chocolate balls (at 6:30–7:30pm on Saturday, 18 March) thanks to Food for Life's workshops. Using raw, organic, vegan and gluten-free ingredients such as almonds, chia, coconut, coconut nectar, cinnamon and cacao, both recipes are simple to whip up for a wholesome snack or a natural energy boost.
Wine Pairing with WineStar
Impress your future dinner guests by showing off your knowledge of wine (specifically, which wines pair well with which foods). No studying necessary – just pop by WineStar's wine pairing tutorial at 3–4pm on Friday, 17 March.
Wines of South Africa
Rapidly garnering recognition in the international wine community, South African wine has recently taken centre stage as a sophisticated premium New World offering. As such, being able to understand the diversity and possibilities of South African wine is both useful and fascinating for anyone who enjoys kicking back with a glass of quality vino. The class will take place between 3–4pm on both Saturday, 18 March and Sunday, 19 March. Two Cenin and Pinotage wines will be featured each day. On the first day, savour Bellingham BS Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2015 and Kanonkop Estate Pinotage 2014. On the second day, the hour-long workshop will present Ken Forrester Meinert Chenin 2014 and Saxenburg Pinotage 2014.
