The iconic Turbine Hall at Tate Modern provided the perfect backdrop for Creative HEAD’s Most Wanted and The It List Awards Grand Final.
The glamorous crowd, who were on fine form, enjoyed a Champagne & canapé reception on the bridge before making their way downstairs for a delicious dinner.
Salt Marsh lamb, heritage tomato & burrata was followed by a Chocolate & blackcurrant martini mousse before the award ceremony that was hosted by funny man Jack Whitehall.
It was then back to the bridge for the after party where the cocktails went down a storm!
The Victoria & Albert Museum is not a venue one would normally associate with a small, intimate dinner. Our client on this occasion hosted an exclusive dinner for 24 very lucky guests in the Dorothy & Michel Hintze Sculpture Galleries. The event was showcasing a new collection that had designs from India, France, Japan & The Ottoman Empire so we incorporated elements fo the cuisine from these cultures into the menu.
Indian inspired canapes were served in the Madejski Garden including our Coconut Gram Fritters with Panch Poran Chutney.
The French starter was Rabbit rillettes, Hazelnut crumb, Frisee, shallots, vinaigrette Dijon. The Japanese main was a stunning Bream with Hondashi Broth, Shitake, Choi Sum, Sencha green tea noodles and dessert was an Ottoman inspired Rose pannacotta, grilled peaches, rose petals & pistachio.
