McCain launches its first-ever

Made With McCain Masterclass series

2020 brought about a new way of living, with small gatherings and home cooking becoming the order of the day. With consumers looking for continuous recipe inspiration, McCain is excited to announce the launch of its first-ever virtual Made With McCain Masterclass series, hosted by celebrity chef J’Something, alongside a special guest.

During the course of the year, consumers will be invited to participate in McCain’s virtual masterclasses from the comfort of their kitchen, and get the inspiration they need to reach new heights in the kitchen.

The first of the four-part virtual masterclass series welcomed the lovely Zanele Van Zyl. Known in Mzansi as a culinary influencer and cookbook author, Zanele created a chicken stir fry tortilla, which was brought to life with the McCain Hawaiian Stir Fry. She showed participants how to make tortillas from scratch, and shared a scrumptious butternut and sweet potato couscous salad, made with cranberries, McCain Garden Peas and McCain Butternut & Sweet Potato mix.

Following months of increased home-cooking, consumers need options that not only make home cooking simpler, faster and more nutritious but also bring some much-needed versatility into the kitchen. Even those who love to cook may find themselves losing steam when it comes to whipping up multiple meals a day.

“That’s where McCain fits in,” says Catharina Bester, Marketing Manager: McCain Foodservice & Retail. “It’s our mission to help grow thriving families, not only through the convenience and nutrition of the planet friendly, locally-grown food that we supply but through the provision of accessible mealtime inspiration. We hope that our Made with McCain Masterclass series will help give consumers an extra boost of inspiration, expand their cooking repertoire, and bring more excitement into the kitchen – and onto the dinner table”.

Don’t let the anticipation of creating delicious meals burden your creative process. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the delicious dishes that you’re able to create quickly and easily, with a little help from your friends at McCain. Just take a look at these recipes and you’ll see what we mean!
