When Robertsons launched their brand new, all-natural spice range (now GMO-free, steam irradiated and free from added MSG), they gathered 10 of South Africa’s top Chefs and whisked them off to a surprise pop-up Spice Farm. The goal? To show them that Robertsons has aligned itself to what Chefs want – namely a return to more natural ingredients.
Robertsons has a long heritage in South Africa, and since 1924 has been helping Chefs add beautiful flavour and colour to their dishes. So it was no surprise that when celebrating the new spice range, old memories surfaced: memories of the Chefs’ first encounter with Robertsons spices. From the beautiful surrounds of Avondale Wine Estate, Chefs recalled fond, warm memories of cooking and sharing special times with loved ones and Robertsons Spices.
Our Chefs not only remembered the first time they encountered Robertsons Spices, but also the most memorable dishes they made with the range. Robertsons has a special place in the hearts (and recipe books) of many of these Chefs, which makes us at Unilever Food Solutions very happy indeed!
