Virtual Cooking with Friends – Zoom

During one of Australia’s harshest COVID lockdowns, the team thought it would be a perfect idea to host a virtual cooking event to lift the spirits. This happened to be the first event in quite a while and it went without a hitch!… luckily, because there’s always one person that burns the pancakes. After our stomachs were full of potato and sour cream, participants were keen to flex their mind muscles at trivia. From memory, it started with general topics like geography, tech, food, etc, but hilariously, our average scores weren’t something to be impressed about. Therefore, ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ were suggested, and heated competition ensued. A couple of us had also made a cocktail to cap the night off, and I’m fairly certain I discovered that Ribena (Blackcurrant Fruit Syrup) doesn’t particularly go with any poison in my drink collection.
