A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CHEF

Our kid judges were privileged to spend a day in a famous restaurant and learn more about being a chef, including food, cooking, secret ingredients, tastings, recipes, smoothies etc .

The Chef asked the kids to guess what the name was of a certain fruit … dragon fruit

  • No one could guess the correct name but we had some interesting guesses
  • Pineapple
  • Pink Coconut
  • Paw paw with thorns
  • Cactus

After tasting the dragon fruit the kids learned how to make a healthy smoothie..  and it was off to the kitchen to try some new recipes

Our Best For Kids, kiddie judges were privileged to spend a day at the famous Tashas, now also at Menlyn Maine, to learn more about cooking and tasting recipes. They got insight into some secret ingredients to certain recipes which we can not give away here however much we ourselves would like to know what they are.

THE DRAGON FRUIT CHALLENGE

Chef Elze Roome firstly thought to challenge our kids by showing them a beautiful Dragon fruit giving them a chance each to guess what fruit it is and the most interesting answers were given, such as:

  • Pineapple
  • Pink Coconut
  • Paw paw with thorns
  • Cactus

Cactus would have been our guess too if we did not know any better. (Ha-Ha)

There is a wide range of names for this fruit. Some people use pitaya or pitahaya, while some others prefer “strawberry pear”.
