Recently guests enjoyed a Smeg cookery demo at Bodel Distributors showroom in Lisburn. Derek Patterson demonstrated the versatility of Smeg’s built in cooking appliances by creating such diverse dishes as a Mediterranean chicken casserole, to a traditional Victoria sponge cake. To help with the sponge Derek also used the latest Smeg stand mixer and blender. As Smeg is an Italian company, a slice of home-made pizza cooked on the Pizza stone is always a popular start to the evening.
