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.

What a Mother’s Day I had… Without my mother. But my adorable mother for the day was great friend Dr Nikki Goldstein.

The Jeep Kurri Burri Polo Classic was the perfect match for mums from all walks of life. Sipping on Veuve Clicquot and taking in the fresh air and sunshine, friends and families enjoyed the charming country hospitality, gourmet food and live entertainment throughout the day.

The fifth annual charity event has become the premier family sport and lifestyle event in NSW, fermenting its reputation as a relaxed day for socials and locals to enjoy a competitive match of polo. But it’s not just for the adults; there were heaps of kids being kept entertained with the Reading Jets kids zone that included face painting, pony rides, Jack Russell Racing and the Kids’ Dash across the field. Apparently I wasn’t allowed to enter the dash. Thanks Nikki!

Host of The Voice Darren McMullen, joined in the frivolity and shared a classic picnic with his parents. Darren was reunited with former The Voice contestant, Prinnie Stevens, who later in the day performed her latest hit, Don’t Wake Me Up, calling on the kids to dance live on stage with her which was very cute!

Pimms, Punch or Peroni? The Polo Bar & Lawn, was a vibrant addition with everybody enjoying the country chic vibe as polo players mingled with guests. Daimon Downey set the tunes with a selection of tracks to keep guests including, Pip Edwards and Kristy-Lee Allan loving life and dancing on the side lines.

The Jeep marquee was full of fabulous people, who shared the day with their children. Celebrity chef Ben O’Donoghue cooked up a storm on the Jeep Grill for us. The food was absolutely delicious! Some of the fab people included Jesinta Campbell, Deborah Knight, Holy Bristly, Ed Phillips, Cameron Williams, David Campbell, David Whitehill, Sam Armytage, the adorable Benji and Zoe Marshall, plus MKR’s Luke Hines and Scott Gooding.

Plenty of money was raised and went towards the charity Inala – a Rudolf Steiner organisation supporting individuals with disabilities. Proceeds raised from this year’s event go towards the development of a New Day Service Facility for clients with high support needs, $145k has been raised to date. Amazing work!

I can’t wait for next year, I had such an enjoyable time. Perhaps next year, I’ll take my mummy :)
