• Woolworths has done it again! Teaming up with renowned chef Liam Tomlin, Woolies has launched a brand new range of epicurean delights. The Global Menu – clearly the name says it all – will take you on a culinary journey from starters to dessert. Rich in flavours from countries like India, Korea and Thailand, the range boasts a plethora of vegetarian dishes, while providing a feast for meat-eaters as well. And let’s not forget the star (or should we say, stars) of the show: a sticky toffee pudding that takes this all-time favourite to a whole new level, and a creamy Madagascan vanilla ice cream that can be paired with the pud (or eaten straight out of the tub – we won’t judge). Talk about hitting the sweet spot! This wondrous selection of ready-made meals was launched at the stunning Villa47 in Bree Street, Cape Town last night (13 June), during an intimate get together with other local foodies. Chef Liam spearheaded the kitchen, serving bite-sized tasters from the range. Having thought of everything from flavour combinations to menu suggestions and pairings, it’s clear that Woolies has spared no expense in offering local patrons a brand new and exciting feast both in-store and online. After having a taste, I think it’s safe to say that these hale and hearty meals will definitely offer some respite as we trudge through the thick of winter.
