Last month some of the Eventa team were fortunate enough to be invited to the launch of the L’atelier des Chef Mobile Kitchen, where an evening of foodie fun was waiting to be had.
The event was held at OXO 2 at the OXO Tower, so some delightful views of the Thames were on show for the team as soon as they arrived, before a glass of bubbles got things underway with a champagne reception and a chance for those present to mingle and network with their fellow foodie attendees. With almost 200 people in the venue spanning agencies, media outlets, and other venue employees, there was a buzz surrounding the evening that would simmer throughout.
Those that were perhaps a little wary about cooking in full view of others would have been put at ease straight away, that lovely London evening weather was in full force, and with a wide array of dishes being prepared nobody was going to feel left out. Sushi was a bit hit with Eventa, as everyone attempted to create their very own, with mixed results!
The foods on offer ranged from sliders (which went down exceptionally well with the team), cerviche, chicken tortillas, pork wontons, lemon meringue pie, and chocolate truffles to name a few. Overall, 12 foods stands provided the food and fun, especially with the Eventa team, who were made to feel welcome and thoroughly enjoyed their attempts at making various foods.
Finally, there were also two cocktail bars at the event, with mixologists on hand to educate those around them on how to create some classic cocktails, whilst also knocking up some nice twists on the tried and tested classics. Feedback from Eventa suggests that the cocktail which they unanimously agreed to be the best one they tried was the spiced apple martini. Sounds amazing and I want one right now.
All in all, L’atelier des Chef Mobile Kitchen’s launch event was a success! A grand evening in the capital that was made even better by some great food and the opportunity to network and chat with some interesting people from within the industry. Most importantly, the team learned something, and that was that a mobile kitchen is an excellent idea for a party.
I’m hoping they try and force the issue on the entire company for our next Christmas Party!
