On Sunday, 10 September 2017 Builders hosted its first media event, #BuildersCookout.
The event was attended by several media, influencers and media personalities including TT Mbha, Smash Afrika, Locia Cooper, Nicolas Goliath, Slikour, Farah Fortune, Tall Ass Mo and Mome who all enjoyed a day in the sun at Croc City based in Fourways, with their friends and family.
Three of the leading braai suppliers who participated in the event with beautifully decorated stations, namely Alva, Weber and Megamaster, are ranges available at Builders stores.
Upon arrival guests were given aprons that represented the group they were part of. Each group had to create a gourmet meal for all the invitees’ with the aim to truly understand and experience the versatility of cooking on a braai as opposed to traditional methods. Alva created the Chocolate Chilli Chicken Wings starter. Weber made Biltong and Avo Black Pepper Steak as well as Braaied Broccoli with Toasted Breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Megamaster satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth with Chocolate Brownie and Braai Pie for dessert made with various fillings.
This event was a collaboration between Builders and its sister brand, Makro and MBrand, providing all the ingredients used to create the mouth-watering meals.
The day was filled with different activities to entertain the young and old. Thrill seekers zip lined over crocodiles, while the more brave attendees had the chance to interact with countless reptiles and baby crocodiles. Laugher was in the air as everyone enjoyed good music and great food crafted by them for each other.
