Edward Chamberlain-Bell and Chris Avant-Smith agree that to be an objective food critic one has to eat even where angels fear to treat. That could mean eating a burger made on the side of a road or driving through fast food drive-thru. It’s all in the interests of helping the public make an informed decision, says Chris, while Edward maintains that if you’re eating healthily 80% of the time then you can afford to binge 20% of the time.
If you’re looking for fast, convenient food but don’t want to compromise on nutrition or flavour then Edward says you can’t make a better investment than to buy yourself a juicer or a blender so you can make yourself healthy and delicious smoothies. You can whip up a healthy breakfast and pour it down the hatch within seconds and get on with your day.
The Food Cops also regard KAUAI quite highly for their commitment to offering South Africans a healthier alternative to “fast food” that is tasty, substantial and delicious. They also spoke to Leanne Jefferies, KAUAI’s Brand Manager, about their ‘Smoothie Smile Week’ where you can buy smoothies for R2 each for yourself or your friends or donate R2 to the Smile Foundation which was established in 2000 at the request of its Chief Patron, Mr Nelson Mandela. It was a win-win-win situation for everyone!
Finally, if you wanted to express your inner Reza Mahammad after watching Reza’s African Kitchen on The Food Network, but were too scared to try, then Chris recommends contacting Alexis Kriel (www.alexiskriel.co.za) to learn how to create your own tastes of India without burning down the house.
