It is always fun when you get invited to test out something new, especially when it involves food and a celebrity chef!  Yesterday just happened to be one of those days and I got to go along to meet Heston Blumenthal at the launch of his new range of foods for Coles.

With the amazing autumn weather we are having here in Sydney at the moment Coles could not have picked a better location for the shindig with the city sparkling from the view in the Royal Botanic Gardens.

We were served delicious samples from Hestons new products which range from delicious sauches to burgers, sausages, meats and pies.

I got to sample the slow cooked asian pork sandwiches and I can tell you without doubt it was the best pork I have ever tasted.  Heston has used lots of interesting Aussie flavours in the food which was wonderful to see and taste.

One important question for me was when is the sweet range arriving!  Luckily for those of us in the dessert business and with a sweet tooth it is not long away with plans to further increase the range throughout the year.

You can find Heston’s new range of 15 different products in Coles stores nationally or visit the website for more info!
