Tefal #Cook4Me event

Tefal #Cook4Me event

Last week I took a day off work and joined a group of fabulous bloggers at a Tefal #Cook4Me event in London.

We were split into two groups and challenged to make a starter, mains and dessert in the Cook 4 Me, an intelligent multi-cooker which is intuitive and has a smart control panel. It guides you step by step to cook and shows you pre-programmed recipes and single ingredients you need to make a dish in record time.

Pictured below are 2 Cook 4 Me sexy appliances. Santa if you are reading my blog this is on the list. I have been good this year 😉

No event is complete without a good selfie and here is one with the lovely Sandhya from Sandhyas Kitchen, a fabulous photographer and fellow blogger.

After an explanation of how the Cook 4 me works, off we went in our teams in a beautiful kitchen. I was with the lovely Sophie from http://www.sophielovesfood.com/ and Megan from http://gottobegourmet.com/

First up was the starters, which was Steamed Asian Pork Dumplings. This was super easy. All you had to do was mix up all the ingredients in a massive bowl, take chunks and form balls and drop them into the steaming basket inside the Cook 4 me.

Switch on the program and hey presto! You get steamed dumplings. We made ours really big so we could extend the time manually to ensure they were cooked through.

The other team made butternut squash soup in theirs which was so delicious and perfect for a cold, autumnal day with crusty bread.

Next up was Farmers Chicken. We started off by browing the chicken in the Cook 4 me.


While this was browning away, we were chopping all the vegetables. I was in charge of mushroom slicing and came across this funky mushroom. How strange is this?

Once the chicken was browned (which didn’t take long but the chicken legs were massive), we added in the chopped vegetables, stock, red wine and bacon and let it cook. The aromas coming from this was divine.


While that was cooking away, we prepared our dessert. Most important part – a croissant bread and butter pudding. We were given a free realm of what to add to it so we went with milk and white chocolate, and salted caramel. OMG this was insanely good.


Here is Sophie’s handy trick to let the pudding rise freely.


We ate to our hearts content and then posed for this lovely photo.  We had such fun and honest blogger chats and a wonderful day. Thank you Tefal for hosting us and giving us lovely goody bags!

I really want a Cook 4 me now. It is super easy to use and I can imagine dhokra and idli would be perfect in it.

It is like a modern pressure cooker. The best thing about it is it releases the steam itself. You must remember to empty the dew collector though 😉
