Anniversary gifts or random surprises – you don’t need a hallmark occasion to go out of your way for a gift or a surprise, especially for a loved one. Perhaps that’s the belief that has been thrusted upon on us that we’re only meant to dedicate hours in our day to day duties and responsibilities, so quality time with loved ones only comes in second place. Well, that’s what we at Rotimatic are out to change.
Time you’d spend on a tedious process like kneading, mixing, cleaning and the likes is now taken care of by Rotimatic. It may not sound like much time at all – an hour a day – but soon after you’ll get into the hang of that additional hour in a day, those 7 hours in a week, and indeed 30 hours in a month. That’s a lot of time you could spend on rest & recuperation. A spa outing perhaps? Netflix with your favourite people? And how much sweeter would those few hours taste if you spent it with your partner?
Indeed, movies and massages are great avenues to spend a day out with your partner, but today, we want to tell you about the charm and enchantment of spending a day in – with a surprise meal for your partner. Your Rotimatic’s already awaiting your commands, so why not press, to impress?
Planning a surprise meal sounds like the combination of the two – the surprise, and the meal itself, and you’re not wrong! And wouldn’t that be a cherry on the cake if you made the meal yourself which is healthy as well as tasty? But striking the perfect balance between the two requires a few additional touches to truly make it one to remember. We’ll explain.
Your partner needs to be caught off guard, and at the intended time and place you’ve planned the surprise. You’re already thinking of cheeky lies and fake plans you can come up with so your partner leaves with time and space to get your meal prep up and running, but you’ll realize soon that you’ll need the help of friends and family to keep your partner distracted. The key to this is simple – let as few people as possible into your little plan. The more people are involved, the higher the chances of a slip-up.
You’ve dreamt about this – the fairylights, the drapes, the silverware you keep in your shelves for the right moment. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the mood. The perfect dinner relies much on its ambience, so if you feel like you’ll have to set up an intimate corner on the balcony or patio, go for it. And get some flowers for a dinner table centerpiece while you’re it, or a Bryan Adams playlist to really set the tone ;).
So you’ve got your surprise planned, the mood set, and your cutlery laid out – now it’s time for the menu. With your Rotimatic, the possibilities are endless, and near effortless. Don’t hold back – make sure spoil your partner. Starters, mains, and definitely dessert, go for the jugular. Over here, you’ll find heaps of recipes for any course of the meal, any time of day and year, and for any occasion.
A good starter option will be Spelt Biscuits with Creamy Herbed Shrimp Dip. Bite-sized delights with a zesty shrimp-based dip will tantalize your taste buds, and you’re only just getting started. For mains, why not have a go at a Roti Burger? Exactly what it sounds like, only more wholesome and healthier than your typical burger. Go crazy with the number of layers, sauces, and patty choices to both your and your partner’s likings for your own customized delight. We’re not done yet! No meal is complete without the sweet and sensual satisfaction of dessert, and we’re going to point you towards Vanilla Chocolate Teff Roti. Teff, a gluten-free ancient grain is native to Ethiopia, and a great source of protein and fiber. Who said dessert was always going to be a sin?
Choose from hundreds of recipes we’ve got curated for you, but if you’d like to take complete charge and innovate further, make sure you share it with us, along with pictures and videos!
Indeed, therein lies the elegance of Rotimatic; gifting you with time so you have more of it to spend on the people that matter more. And in turn, giving you the opportunities to surprise your partner with a lavish meal – a real Rotimatic surprise.
