The Taste of Joburg is without doubt the top Foodie and Wino festival to attend in South Africa. Take my word for it. I’ve been to mostly all the shows which fall within the ‘food and wine’ category and none of them come anywhere close to The Taste of Joburg! In terms of vibe, food, wine, people, hotties and weather, this is where you want to be this weekend! It’s where I’m heading this weekend and I am stoked to get there.
My third week of completing various tasks using the Samsung Smart Microwave Oven in the #MissionSamsung Blogger Challenge is drawing to a close and the fine people at Samsung have asked me to review the product. My understanding of this task is that I need to give their product one last punt on The Noblest Rogue in the hope that I say the right things and convince them to make me the winner of their third challenge and award me the Samsung Smart Microwave Oven as a prize. I am usually averse to such blatant exploitation however I have grown to enjoy my Samsung Smart Microwave Oven and would like to hold onto it and so will acquiesce their request for a product punt.
I’m not one to beat around the bush here at The Noblest Rogue and when I get given a task – or a mission in this instance – I go all out and do my best to hash out the biggest and best. Mission 2 of the #MissionSamsung Challenge I’m participation in had two options which I had to choose from. The first was cooking up some delicious veggies by making use of the Microwave Oven’s Slim Fry function and the second was baking something – anything – using its Auto Cook function. I decided to do both. My reasoning was that I’d need to have the veggies for dinner at some stage during the week and who really needs a reason to bake some munchies? Here follows a tale of baking a really large choc chip cookie.
I think that if I was forced to eat one food for the rest of my life, it would probably be popcorn. I love the stuff! Sometimes I agree to watch a movie I’m not into at the cinema because I know that I’ll get a box of popcorn out of it. In fact, at times the popcorn at the cinema can be my leverage point when agreeing on what movie to watch. With my love for popcorn clear for all to see, why wouldn’t I check what type of popcorn this Samsung Smart Microwave Oven can make. This is not part of the #MissionSamsung challenge at all but they did ask me to rate the product and the type of popcorn it makes is high on my check list.
