A Night With Campbell’s Real Soup Bases and Manu Feildel

May 27th, 2015

Manu & Campbell's Real Soup Bases

I had the opportunity to learn a thing or two in the kitchen with one of Australia’s leading chefs – and what a pleasure it was.

Manu Feildel demonstrated in front of an intimate audience how to cook simple and flavour packed soups using the new range of Campbell’s Real Soup Bases. These soup bases are the perfect way to create amazing winter meals.

Real Soup Bases are made using Campbell’s Real Stock infused with the perfect blend of herbs and spices. The bases are designed to save you the time, cost and hassle involved with buying raw ingredients and cooking from scratch yourself.

With Italian, Asian and Moroccan bases in the Campbell’s range, Manu showed us how easy it is to add a few simple ingredients and create a spectacular looking and tasting meal in as little as 30 minutes which I absolutely loved!

On the front of the carton it tells you what ingredients to add, which I find super handy as I get a little overwhelmed when I go to the grocery store, figuring out what ingredients I need to tie a meal together.

After an enjoyable time learning to make 3 of Manu’s delicious winter soups using Campbell’s Real Soup Bases, I feel I can confidently create some delicious, hearty soups this winter!

To get you started, the team at Campbell’s have come up with tonnes of recipes for you to try, including: Moroccan Lamb & Vegetable Soup, Minestrone Soup, Italian Meatball Soup and Thai Sweet Corn & Chicken Soup.

Plates For Mates Charity for Matt Golinski and McComb Foundation

March 6th, 2012

Earlier this year, Peter Everett ex-host of Ready Steady Cook told us about an event that was being planned to support Matt Golinski, the well known Queensland based chef on the show who lost his wife and three children in a house fire on Boxing Day 2011.

With burns to 40% of Matt’s body, he only recently came out of an induced coma, then being told about the horrific news of his family.

Well the national fundraising event has been launched, Plates for Mates. Coordinated by some of Matt’s closest mates – Janelle Bloom, Manu Feildel, George Calombaris, Damian Heads, Gary Mehigan and Alastair McLeod – as an urgent call to arms by the entire hospitality industry to facilitate fundraising for the Matthew Golinski Recovery Fund and to the McComb Foundation.

I’m so pleased that this has now come to light, and these guys are backing this incredible cause for both Matthew and the McComb Foundation, which aim to help the difficult recovery process of burns victims – one that is extremely close to my heart.

What is Plates for Mates about?

The idea is that restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, staff canteens, tuckshops, hotels, pubs, clubs, resorts, suppliers to the hospitality industry and members of the public do something to assist both Matt and The McComb Foundation.

Dr Fiona Wood who researched and invented spray on skin used in burn treatments started the McComb Foundation and the hope is enough money will be raised to fund a research fellowship named in honour or Matt’s wife and daughters, the research fellowships would be to help people heal who have been both physically and emotionally hurt from burn injuries.

How can you be involved?

Visit the website, www.PlateforMates.com.au and add your event, which could be something as little as a monetary contribution, to hosting a lunch or dinner in your own restaurant to raise money for the two foundations. Maybe you own a coffee shop and want to give 50 cents from each coffee to the foundations, or maybe add a $1 surcharge on every bill and donate this to the foundations. What ever it is you choose, ever dollar helps and you have your chance to put what ever it is you choose, on the website. So submit an event, or attend an event. All of these events are listed on the website.

It is a very special cause and I really hope Australia gets behind this – congratulations to the 6 compassionate friends of Matt who all pulled this together.
