“Our bodies are our gardens - our wills are our gardeners.” William Shakespeare
Two of the biggest food trend predictions for 2018 were the rise of veganism and (wait for it) edible glitter. Along with veges and sparkles we like the idea of flexitarianism. Being flexible about food but making ethical and environmental based decisions about what you eat.
A culinary gold carpet was rolled out for the recent Pandora Shine Launch. With Lindt chefs making golden pralines and Lindor lollies dipped in gold dust. Not to mention the gold petit fours, macaroons and metallic mini donuts dipped in malva sauce. It was a dazzling affair and sparkles of thanks go to Afresh Events for the décor, Fresh Creative Catering for the food and Molecular Bars for the cocktails.

Oh - the guys at Glory in Jozi - we love you. The pic below tell the story - this is what it means to have an gastronomic experience rather than a meal. In their words: "For those looking for something special at a refined level, inbox their Facebook and more details will be divulged. We are excited!"

The bonus of FOOD TRUCKS: Supporting local business, having agile suppliers and a wide variety of fresh food for guests to choose from - especially if they are flexitarian. For a recent event we had a fleet of them on site, including: Epic Eats, Tuttos, Filthy Mustache, Culture Kitchen, Treat Gourmet Beverage, Taco Kombi and Nyama Spit Braai. Yum and all highly recommended.
“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” Ruth Reichl
This quote says how we feel about food and events. As well as glitz and glam it's often outdoors and healthy. As creative Event Managers and Planners we try to be authentic about events and how we nourish our guests.
“To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace.” Doug Conant
We needed a huge space for the Kellogg's "I Deliver, We Win" activation, but didn't want to use the normal conference venues. The guests were expecting “fancy” but once they realised we'd created a unique space for them they were impressed.
