Some people have a natural talent when it comes to cooking, yet some other unfortunate souls, such as myself, are completely and utterly incompetent at cooking even the simplest things successfully.
Friends, our days of scouring the bottoms of burnt-out pots and pans are over. Say goodbye to frozen, packaged food and hello to fresh, home cooked meals.
The Marion's Kitchen food range has a great variety of Asian inspired meals for all to enjoy. Now I know what you're thinking- Asian food is hard to cook, and it'd take a miracle to get all of those fresh flavours right. Well now you can.
As daunting as this task was, I decided to cook dinner for my housemate and I. Might I just add that he is an ex chef, so the pressure was on.
I chose to try the Marion's Kitchen Thai Green Curry, it contained all the fresh ingredients that I wouldn't even know where to buy, how to cook them or what to cook them with. This Thai green curry cost me $5.99 and in addition, I had to purchase 400g of chicken $6.78, rice $2.00 and a cup of vegetables (I chose capsicum, snow peas and bok choy, costing a total of $6.50).
The recipe contained 4 easy steps, written in very basic terms that we kitchen nightmares can easily understand. After 20 minutes in the kitchen, not only were there no burnt pots and pans, no angry owner of those pots and pans but also a beautiful, fresh meal I had successfully made. It tasted fresh and delicious, even my housemate was very impressed.
Take up the challenge and shock your friends and family this weekend. Grab a Marion's Kitchen meal that serves 4 people, a few bottles of wine and host a dinner party. House fire and food poisoning free!
