Get Paid To Drink Gin Around The Globe

You read it right. A London hospitality company is offering a lucky gin fan the chance to travel the world on a global tasting session, all in the name of work. Lucy Reid  lucy@redcarpetmagazine.co.uk

Hospitality company Inception Group has made the job offer to honour the launch of its new bar, Mr Fogg's Society of Exploration. The successful candidate and their  companion will follow a route inspired by fictional explorer Phileas Fogg and return  with their research to serve at the new bar, set to open this autumn in Charing Cross. 

Stops include Tokyo, Mumbai, Hong Kong, San Francisco, New York and Lisbon. The travellers will be presented with an atlas, journal, luggage tags and hip flask from Aspinal of London.

British adventurer Levison Wood has been enlisted by the Mr Fogg's team and Inception Group.

Requirements include candidates who are savvy with social media, digital videos and photographs. Understandably, a valid passport and a passion for gin are also essential.

Here’s the application form:

Camilla Elphick Brings Bluebird To Heel

It’s not often that desserts invoke the idea of footwear but a Chelsea restaurant’s collaboration  with Camilla Elphick is set to change that. Abigail Parkin  abigail@redcarpetmagazine.co.uk

 

Bluebird in Chelsea is sweetening up its dessert menu with the help of Camilla Elphick, the award-winning British footwear brand. The menu takes inspiration from two of Camilla’s favourite things: ice cream and shoes.

The My Favourite Things Menu will launch on the 13th August at the restaurant in King’s Road. For that month diners can contemplate sweet nuances of the infamous Silver Lining Boot arrow detail along with heart silhouettes inspired by her celebrity favoured ‘Lover’ styles and, naturally, her iconic PEZ heel.

Head pastry chef, Roger Pizey brought the visions to life taking the cues from the shoes. He certainly had vibrant colour to work with; the summer 2018 collection PEZ Daisy shoes sport bright orange heels and lively daisies. The culinary translation? Dark chocolate fondant with lemon verbena centre, chocolate ice-cream and a colour pop of edible flowers.

Elsewhere black sesame ice cream with blackberry sorbet, white chocolate arrow and edible glitter evokes the design imagery of Silver Lining Boots.

Bluebird’s pudding includes a different flavour of ice cream to toast the dessert tasting menu in the first collaboration between the two celebrated British brands.

Camilla Elphick said: “I’ve loved every second of this partnership! Combining two of my favourite things- shoes and ice-cream! We decided to create edible incarnations of our designs, and the outcome, three mouthwateringly pretty and delicious desserts. My favourite is the PEZ Daisy shoe inspired chocolate fondant. Although, a mouthful of all three and a glass of fizz would be the dream…”
