Manchester – The second city on our European Roadshow culinary journey…

Pure Punjabi Safia and Surinder European Roadshow culinary experience - Manchester event

The venue

The seccond roadshow event was held in the amazing space that is fivefourstudios in Manchester. A 1970’s warehouse transformed into a state of the art studio and events venue, fivefourstudios is set over three floors, with its own bar, outdoor area and three pure white studios. The white studios were the perfect backdrop for the Freshworks campervan, conference delegates and our Pure Punjabi food 🙂

Shopping in Manchester

Safia headed over to Altrincham Market (quickly, as it was chilly!) for some beautiful, fresh & local produce…

Set up

The campervan arrived the night before, and was guided into the beautiful main space.

The kitchen area, which was located in the stylishly moody bar upstairs (think ‘Peaky Blinders’ edgy coolness), was sectioned off to allow kitchen staff access whilst giving guests maximum privacy.

A quick late-night pow-pow took place between Safia and the Freshworks team, to check through final presentation details.

The morning of…

Emma and her team at the venue were brilliant, quickly and efficiently transforming spaces from one layout to the next as the morning progressed.

Food service

Consistency across the culinary tour was a key factor in the menu choice, and the ability to cater for all dietaries and lifestyles, as well as for the delegates coming from India who would know the difference between home-produced food and restaurant food. 

We ensured this by using our Indian meal kits and Tikka Paste, which meant that we could prepare everything in advance and then the fresh ingredients could be added, according to our instructions and supervision.

Next city… Madrid…

After a great event in Manchester, Safia headed back home with week 1 wrapped up, ready to prepare our meal kits and spices ready for week 2 and the 3rd city on the European tour…Madrid.

Customer Reviews

Karen Taylor October 2018

We are having such fun cooking from The Spice Pack Collection and all the dishes have come out brilliantly. The smell is divine and Rob, who is very fussy, is particularly impressed. All our visitors are wowed when they smell the box – we’ve been too possessive to share any with others, as yet!

As a natural therapist I particularly appreciate the healthy aspect of each dish, none of which compromise on taste. Good ingredients freshly cooked makes a big difference.

We’re going on holiday with three other couples in a couple of weeks and going to take the pack with us to cook some dishes together.

“We had a BBQ for family and friends few weeks ago and we made the Lamb Kebabs & Coconut & Sesame Chutney and Crushed Tikka New Potatoes & Mango Chicken… We received such rave reviews!! All so easy to make with the spices and sauces all provided for us…food was all delicious!”

“That was so fun…

Thank you for the zoom meet up. That was so fun. We will definitely be up for another. Please send another suitable invite and kit. We are predominately veggies so used the butternut squash version. If this continue the local takeaway will suffer for sure. Again thanks”.

“What a wonderful cookalong…

…The Mango Chicken was delicious and my naan bread actually looked amazing – like the real thing. I feel so successful. Thank you. Looking forward to our next cookalong”.

Pam Brown – dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Thank you so much both…

– the class was amazing and we both really enjoyed the food. It makes so much difference knowing exactly how to do things and that we can make such tasty food which is gluten free. Jeera rice has always been my favourite but many restaurants don’t have it on the menu”.

Sylvia M – dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Thank you so much...
... for a great hour of cooking on Saturday evening. I enjoyed it very much as I have never done anything like it before. The Punjabi chicken was delicious and we had enough to freeze for another time”.

Sue W – dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Well that was amazing…
... the best curry I've ever had and Jxx said it was like being in India ( as he’s spent so much time there with work ) loved the class and so did Exxx looking forward to coming to your workshops…
…and will order some more kits from your website”

Roy P…dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Many thanks…
...for the cook–along workshop yesterday. It was very enjoyable and the meal tasted lovely. As someone who is not a confident cook it was ideal to follow your teaching. I have recommended this to a friend of mine who is very interested in joining the next cook–along. I will definitely be doing it again”.

Ellie Pipe

I highly recommend this lovely family run local company…

... We’ve enjoyed 2 of their meal kits now along with an online cook along to show us what to do. Thank you.

Diane McGillivray

I love them all and would highly recommend…

...If I had to choose one it would be the Mango chicken.
