Hirsch’s first virtual Kitchen Capers event brings together cooking enthusiasts from around South Africa.

A popular event on the Hirsch’s calendar has, since its inception a year ago, been their Kitchen Capers event that before COVID19 was held on a monthly basis in Hirsch’s shops in KZN, Gauteng and the Cape.  With lockdown measures in place at this time, Hirsch’s PR team is joining forces with some of the well-known restaurants and catering businesses around the country – many of whom have battled during lockdown – and holding fun and informative Zoom sessions with the chefs in these industries.

The first Hirsch’s Kitchen Capers Zoom event was held with Eat Greek, the well-known catering business based in Durban, with the owner, Nick Papadopolous and chef Eric Edwards whipping up a deliciously crisp and flavoursome Spanakopita (Spinach pie) and the quintessential Greek salad in the state of the art Siemens kitchen at the Hirsch’s Umhlanga branch. They were helped, from a distance, by Hirsch’s PRO and cooking enthusiast, Lindsay Kleynhans.

Zoom guests may not have been able to taste the dish but were left in no doubt of its unique crispness when it was sliced through.  If you would like the recipe, visit Hirsch’s blog to get the recipe.

Hirsch’s will be holding these virtual cooking events every two weeks.  Due to popular demand, the Eat Greek team will be back (VIRTUALLY) on Wednesday, June 24 between 11 and 12.  On the menu?  The popular Greek specialty, Moussaka (a vegetarian and meat version) pared with the perfect wine, courtesy of Terrilyn from T-Inc Brand Catalysts.  Also on the menu – a delectable Greek sweet treat – baclava and coffee!
