Bloggers Cooking Event

Bloggers Cooking Event

The Quorn cooking workshop took place at the Underground Cookery School at Old Street, London where a collection of foodie and fitness loving bloggers were invited to learn some new recipes and the nutritional benefits of our healthy protein meat-free range from our nutrition expert.

Greeted with a glass of bubbly and some delicious Quorn canapés, the bloggers learnt about the history of Quorn, how it is made and how it shapes up in comparison to other proteins. Quorn mince contains 10.9grams of protein per 75 gram serving and only contains 79 calories.

The bloggers also learnt that Quorn contains all the 9 essential amino acids needed by the human body and is also naturally high in fibre (more per 100grams than potatoes, baked beans, brown bread and brown rice) which is important for digestion.

Presentation over, the bloggers were split into groups and set to work preparing the 3 course meal. The menu included the preparation of a 3 course meal: a trendy BBQ ‘Pulled’ Quorn and pink coleslaw starter made with shredded Quorn Meat Free Chicken Fillets, Green Thai Curry main made with our Meat Free Chicken Pieces and a cheeky chocolate torte for pudding (you have to treat yourself now and again!).

Once prepared, we all sat down to enjoy the meal. The BBQ ‘Pulled’ Quorn served in a bun was a great meat-free alternative to the recent pulled pork trend, with the BBQ marinade really bringing some great flavour. The pink coleslaw was the perfect crunchy accompaniment to this melt in the mouth soft pulled Quorn.  

Green Thai Curry is of course a classic combination of flavours made with onion, garlic, ginger, fresh coriander, lime leaves, turmeric, mango chutney and coconut milk served together with steamed basmati rice. The key is to allow the Quorn pieces enough time to soak up all those amazing flavours and reap the rewards of your hard work!

The chocolate torte was a light and luxurious pudding, perfect for finishing off a lovely evening of learning, cooking and dining. “I'm pleased to report that I was impressed with Quorn” said Lauren of ElleBloggs, with Charlotte of CharlotteAClarke saying “Swapping surely is a no brainier, right?” having learnt about the nutritional benefits of Quorn.

Overall the Quorn blogger cooking workshop was a great success, and we look forward to holding another one soon.
