My rainy weekend was well spent, when I tuned in last Saturday to the Fresh & Furious online event of Breville Philippines. I’ve attended lots of livestream events on Facebook but I particularly enjoyed this one because at the end of the stream, I already learned several healthy recipes that I can easily make at home!
The online event featured the newest addition to the Breville collection of premium quality Kinetix blenders – the Fresh & Furious! From what I’ve seen in the event, this blender is powerful enough to mix, chop, blend, puree, or even liquify ingredients, all thanks to its surgical-grade Kinetix blade and smooth blending system. It’s now easier for you to prepare restaurant quality dishes, from appetizer to dessert!
To showcase the different capabilities of the blender, guests from various backgrounds shared their own special recipes. They demonstrated that you can essentially prepare a full course meal using the Breville Fresh & Furious!
For the appetizer, Chef Waya Araos-Wijangco of Gourmet Gypsy Art Cafe prepared a roasted beet dip. She first roasted the beets in the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, then used the Fresh & Furious blender to create a pureed dip which she served with bread. I can imagine that she didn’t have to worry about making a mess because of the blender’s handy Auto Clean button.
For the main course, musical theater actor Lissa Romero-de Guia, prepared a roasted tomato pasta. She used the Breville Fresh & Furious Blender to create a puree from the roasted tomatoes, which she then added to the pasta before serving.
As we approached happy hour, film director Marlon Rivera showed us how to make a vegan charcuterie, with ingredients that were cooked in the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer. And to go with the “pulutan”, lifestyle blogger and photographer Mike Soon made frozen Margarita with the Fresh & Furious. Blending the ice was a breeze because of the LCD display which makes it easier to ensure precise and consistent blending. Meanwhile, actor Stella Cañete Balucas Mendoza created a Tahini, which I imagine would have been a good partner to the direk Marlon’s platter.
My favorite part was when we finally got to dessert! Chef Waya made Tiramisu that seriously looked oh so yummy! Another favorite of mine is the Ube Latte made by Margo Flores of Taguan, which is a relatively new coffee shop that opened in Baguio.
Finally, actor Kakki Teodoro used the Breville Fresh & Furious to create a healthy smoothie. It’s fascinating how she was able to achieve the perfect consistency of the smoothie, thanks to the Fresh & Furious’ unique blending mechanism that whips from below and pulls from the top for a thick and smooth consistency.
The fact that the guests of the event had different backgrounds, further highlighted the theme, “Celebrate your colors”. The virtual gathering proved that despite the differences in their crafts or overall interests, everyone can still blend together.
The Fresh & Furious Kinetix Blender is a timely addition to anyone’s kitchen, especially now that people have found a renewed interest in creating their own healthy menu in the context of the pandemic. I’ll be making my own recipes using the Fresh & Furious too, so watch out for that!
