Less than seven months after bursting onto the Australian fresh fruit scene, Orchard Rd is heading to the big screen. The premium fruit brands’ Gold Kiwis will feature on Network 10’s Everyday Gourmet show from this Friday (3 August) in recipes created and showcased by culinary celebrity Justine Schofield.
Justine is one of Australia’s most recognizable and popular cooking personalities after having been a MasterChef contestant. She has since forged a reputation as a simple and elegant cook, passionate about inspiring families to be ambitious and creative in their kitchens. Her cooking show, Everyday Gourmet, has notched up over 600 episodes and is entering its eighth season. The show also airs in New Zealand.
This week’s episode will feature the first of two recipes with Orchard Rd Gold Kiwis. The first, a delicious coconut sorbet with glazed gold kiwis, will air on Friday and a second recipe, an oak milk porridge with gold kiwi compote – perfect for a chilly winter’s morning, will air on 29 August. The segments will also air on New Zealand TV at a later date.
Justine describes the fruit as being “just like sunshine” with colour that “pops off the plate”. “I love to snack on Gold Kiwi but they’re also beautiful in a dessert.”
Mark Romeo, who works for the owner of the Orchard Rd brand in Australia – T&G Global as commercial manager – says Everyday Gourmet is fantastic promotion for the already popular brand.
“Justine is incredibly well-known, and her show has great reach into homes across Australia. Her programme is supported by additional promotion through its website and social, extending the reach of our brand. Being on the show is a great opportunity for Orchard Rd and we’re excited to have formed this new partnership with Justine and the crew at Everyday Gourmet.”
Mark says Orchard Rd is a family of fruits packaged and promoted in a fun and engaging way and Justine epitomises the energy that our Gold Kiwi bring those who enjoy them.
Orchard Rd is available in 900 stores across three States – New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria and has an active following on Instagram and through its website www.orchardroad.com.au
