Fresh Recipes

FRESH PLEASE are excited to announce our latest ambassadors Callum Hann (ex Masterchef) and dietitian Themis  Chryssidis of Sprout.  These two Adelaide food personalities have recently launched their new book titled Quick. Easy. Healthy, which divides recipes into seasonal chapters, so you can cook according to best tasting, in-season produce.

Callum’s quick and easy recipe ideas coupled with Themis’s input into recipes which better refuel and re-hydrate our bodies, with just the right complement of vitamins and minerals, is simply ingenious. With this in mind we have the pair working on a few special seasonal recipes exclusive to FRESH PLEASE.

The first series of Callum and Themis’s FRESH PLEASE recipes will launch in November, ahead of Australia’s summer season of fruit and vegetables. Look for these recipe ideas and instructional videos coming to a FRESH PLEASE stand near you.
