Valentine's competition



Please note that the competition closed on 28 February.


Talking about hearts skipping a beat, we love the fact that research is indicating that mushrooms may just be the perfect candidate to prevent heart attacks and strokes:  They’re virtually fat-free, high in fibre and provide potassium - but are low in sodium – making them one of the most virtuous ingredients for healthy blood cholesterol and healthy blood pressure.  So there you have it - adding mushrooms regularly to your meals may be one of the easiest (and most delicious!) ways to a healthy heart.


But, these miracle morsels are not happy to just love your heart, they are also the kings of umami, the lip-smacking 5th flavour that they generously offer to any dish plus they’re low in kilojoules and packed with anti-oxidants. Put all this together with its cholesterol-lowering ability and you have a very tasty ingredient that is taking good care of your heart too.


If mushrooms are your star ingredient, enter our competition and stand a chance to WIN top of the range kitchen equipment that will make cooking mushrooms to perfection even easier. Yes, you stand a chance to walk away with your very own set of professional cookware consisting of a Wusthof Gourmet chef's knife, a Le Creuset cast iron skillet and a Joseph Joseph chopping board with a built-in knife sharpener, to the value of R2500 that’s perfect for the passionate home cook.
