Take a look at the below video to see what went on when we hosted our first Knowledge Guild event with Speakers Corner. Watch this space for details of future events.
Last night (11 August), The Brewery and food director Tom Gore, delivered a seven-course menu tasting for prospective new clients at the venue’s exclusive outdoor garden marquee.
Highlighting The Brewery’s catering offer, 70 guests including from Shell, Barclays, Unliever and EMAP enjoyed al fresco dining within The Brewery’s summer courtyard marquee.Transformed into an overgrown secret garden, the structure was decked with floral designs by Hybrid Flowers to create a mysterious and luxurious feel.
Food director Tom Gore, executive chef Steve Connell and new head chef Fernando Granzotto designed a seasonal taster menu which featured Clouds of Tomato; Mackerel with chickpeas and rhubarb; Ways of Pea – Pea mousse, pea purée, pea sorbet and pea shoots; Seared scallop with vanilla emulsion; Soda bread with whipped butter; Seared lamb with heritage tomatoes and goats curd; Coconut parfait, pineapple sorbet, spit roast pineapple, maple, toasted coconut, lime curd and meringue nibs.
Wines were matched to each dish, with Champagne on arrival and post-dinner espresso martinis served instead of coffee. A temporary kitchen was built in the octagon reception and dishes transported across the courtyard.
Simon Lockwood, creative director at The Brewery commented on the event’s success: “We’re fortunate as a venue to have such unique and diverse spaces, we are able to create individual landscapes and settings for numerous events. Last night was another unique production and catered event, these occasions allow us to showcase the great and good of events at The Brewery, and highlights what sets us apart from other venues.”
Tom Gore, The Brewery’s food director added: “I love creating new and exciting menus, whether it’s for a conference, one-off party or tasting event like last night, we have to work on our feet and be creative from one event to the next. This breed’s creativity, which the team at The Brewery has in abundance. We offer everything on-site for events and our fine-dining, seasonal, food combinations perfectly reflects The Brewery’s philosophies of quality, diversity and experience.”
Last night (22 February) The Brewery and Speakers Corner presented the first in its new series of Knowledge Guild conferences at the Chiswell Street venue.
Compered by Mark Durden-Smith, the inspiring speaker session ‘Above and Beyond – Get going for 2016’ featured motivating guests Sir Clive Woodward, Bonita Norris and Lewis Pugh.
Sharing their incredible journeys from dreaming to achieving success, the 290 strong audience were treated to personal and professional stories of strength, leadership and teamwork. From Bonita’s journey to the summit of Mount Everest, Lewis’s fight for marine conservation and raising awareness through record-breaking swims, to Sir Clive Woodward’s philosophies for winning and creating high-performance teams across sporting and corporate worlds.
Guests took part in a Q&A session before joining the speakers for networking at a post event drinks reception, which included canapé and bowl food of triple fried chip with charred fillet of beef and béarnaise sauce; soft quail egg with cured salmon; crispy buttermilk chicken, bubble and squeak and lime gel; banana ice-cream, chocolate crumble and apple foam.
