The Dine Taste Test

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to an Ambassador’s Dinner at The Mansion in Leeds. If you read my blog regularly, then you will know that I attended an event of theirs earlier in the year which you can read about HERE if you missed it.

The theme of this event was the “Dine Taste Test” with a different question for each course of the meal and the ultimate taste test at the end of the event featuring 5 sorbets of the same colour and the aim of guessing the flavours behind them all.

We were greeted with a drink upon arrival and introduced to Dan who headed up Dine at the venue. Once everyone had arrived, the canape’s started coming out and they all tasted and looked amazing.

The canape’s on offer were:

Purple Radish canape Shell

With Goat’s Cheese & Beetroot Caviar

Wild Mushroom Arancini

Saffron Aioli 

Fillet of Beef

Rolled in Pistachio

A truly indulgent experience

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen me snapping away at an event last Thursday. I thought I’d put fingers to keyboard straight away and share the full evening’s events with you in detail. Prepare to be amazed and a little bit lot jealous.

When I first got the invite to this event back before Christmas, I RSVP’d instantly and put my name forward to attend. The lovely Dine Events were running the event with Cicada Communications performing the PR side of things for them. The destination for the event was the incredible Mansion, Leeds and driving up to the venue on the evening, I just stared in disbelief. Having spent the last 8 months planning my wedding, I’d heard of the venue but never seen it, but I can assure you it’s WOAH!

I was invited in from the cold with a warm greeting and led to a room set out for a demonstration of floral crown making. After introductions to Jane & Jenny, the wonderful staff from Dine and the incredible team at Twisted Willow Floristry, it was time to take our seats and prepare for the demonstration. I’ve featured some photography from the event itself in this post by the very talented Daniel from 123 Photography as well as some of my own photos from the dinner. Full credit to Daniel as the photos are absolutely amazing.
