Gourmet Giveaway – Two $250 vouchers for KitchenwareDirect

Thanks to eHarmony I’ve got two $250 vouchers for KitchenwareDirect to give away.  So what’s the connection between dating and cooking?


eHarmony says dating is a lot like cooking in many ways; both of them need the right ingredients to create the best results.  When we think back to our best dating experiences, it’s usually that everything has come together in exactly the right way to make the occasion truly special.  A great date is not only about the atmosphere of a romantic restaurant or the lovely backdrop of a stroll down the beach.  It’s also about the chemistry and connection between you and your match.  A dash of excitement and a pinch of romance… what’s your ideal match for the perfect date?  

Want to get cooking today? I’ve teamed up with eHarmony and KitchenwareDirect to offer you the chance to win $250 of vouchers to use on cookware of your choice at KitchenwareDirect.  There are two $250 vouchers to be won.

  1. Three perfect ingredients for a first date (‘ingredients’ interpreted loosely): peaches and haloumi skewered over the grill, a warm, breezy evening, and a chilled bottle of riesling to help things along. Oh man, I miss summer already!

  2. Recipe for the perfect/good/happy partnership? Cooking with alcohol (sometimes) helps. Also, let the cook cook. And, don’t use msg too much. πŸ™‚ Hope that helps.

  3. A perfect first date needs comfortable conversation, common interests and a dash of chemistry πŸ™‚

  4. I’m a fan of eHarmony on Facebook too

  5. I’d have to say:

    1) The food – after all the date can just be an excuse for a good meal hahah

    2) The conversation – because (unfortunately) not all first dates result in a spark

    3) The originality – A surprise picnic by the river = best first date ever πŸ™‚

  6. Take a cup of good humour, a dash of kindness, and a pinch of charisma and mix well!

  7. Like eHarmony on FB too πŸ™‚

  8. After almost 20 years with my husband and three children together I would have to say the recipe for a perfect partnership is equal parts love and friendship with a good dash of tolerance and humour thrown in! πŸ™‚

  9. 1. An open mind
    2. A positive attitude
    3. A relaxed atmosphere

  10. Perfect things for first date,

    Sense of humour,
    Good food!

  11. I like eharmony on facebook……

  12. My recipe for the perfect patnership is definitely trust with a lot of love!

  13. I think the perfect ingredients for a great first date is chemistry, a great location and most of a sense of humour to get over any nerve induced faux pas!

    I liked eHarmony AU on Facebook.

    Thanks πŸ™‚

  16. What a great competition. I like my first date to be comfortable but with a bit of spice and romance. So the ingredients which best match this would be some chilli, champagne and some comfort food like bangers and mash. Hehe, weird first date πŸ˜‰

  17. The way to a man’s heart is through his mother’s cooking – I would dish up the favourite dish that he loves from his mother’s cooking!
