Paris – The fourth city on our European Roadshow culinary journey…

Pure Punjabi Corporate European Roadshow Paris culinary experience

The Venue

The kitchen team

The food set up for Paris was fairly unique in that the venue didn’t have fully functioning kitchen. Therefore, all the food prep and cooking was done off site, at Baldev Singh’s beautiful restaurant Jodhpur Palace. He was so acomodating and he and his team were a pleasure to work with.

Safia, Baldev, Baldev’s brother and nephew all sat and ate dinner together in the evening on the prep day.

Local produce

There was an array of beautiful local shops with wonderful French produce. Safia picked up some little French figs, as a parnish for the dessert, as well as French roses to decorate the sweet, as well as each invidual place setting for the guests.

The City of Paris

Upon arriving in Paris, Safia and Rachel decided that one place the Freshwork campvan needed to pop by and visit was the Eiffel Tower! So, after Safia left the food prep and Rachel finished up at the venue, they made a late-night trip into the centre of Paris.

They had untentionally timed their visit perfectly, as they arrived in time for the structure’s shimering glow (it happens from 6pm, on the hour, for 5 minutes) and they caught the midnight display!

Meal kits for food prep

The morning of the event, Safia stayed on site at the venue to oversee the dining set up, prepare the dessert platters, and communicate timings with Baldev and the team, who were back at base putting the final touches on the dishes. These were then loaded into huge containers that keep the food piping hot (at exactly the temperature they are before they are sealed closed).

When Baldev arrived, the team unloaded everything and brought it straight to Safia, who saw that it was immediately taken to the buffet station, ready to feed hungry guests!

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!”

Chris & Debs - dinner kit with cook-along customer

“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”.

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.
