East Coast Radio House & Garden Show 2016

The ECR House & Garden Show is currently on at the Durban Exhibition Centre. I spent a few hours there on Saturday and Sunday mostly watching the celebrity chef's in action at the Celebrity Chef Kitchen. The chefs kitchen is being hosted and run by Sherwyn Weaich (executive chef / food writer / television host) and he is highly entertaining.

I watched Culinary Artist Wayland Green from Granny Mouse Country House & Spa in the Midlands make delicious spinach gnocchi, Thai fish cakes, chicken croquettes and seafood paella. #yummy

Also showing their culinary skills at the show were Chef Ismail Arbee and Chef Zahira Mohamed. They are the two chefs whose cooking shows will soon be launching on Deen TV. Chef Ismail's show is called What's Cooking and Chef Zahira's show is Simply Desserts. Steak canapes and prawn canapes are a definite speciality of Chef Ismail and they were delicious. Chef Zahira tempted our taste buds with a blueberry panacotta and a white chocolate mousse with a granadilla curd.

My favourite part of the show is always the hall filled with Durban creatives. There is jewellery, leather bags, washi tape and a whole lot more to see and buy. I treated myself to a roll of washi tape and a pack of fabric offcuts.

I also had a good look and drool over the beautiful gas stoves at the Hirsch stand.

There is lots to see and buy at the show and a wide range of food to tempt hungry tummies.
