Camilla Elphick Brings Bluebird To Heel

0

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…”

Regal Viewing at The Albert Hall

March 29, 2018 Posted in : Venues

VIP takes on a different light with the news that a twelve-seat Grand Tier Box is for sale at the Royal Albert Hall, London priced at over £3 million pounds. Lucy Reid

The Grand Tier Box is offered to the market by Harrods Estates with a key selling point that it’s an emerald’s throw from The Royal Box, and offers enviable views of the world’s most anticipated music concerts and events. Events have ranged from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s The Music Of Bond to the European premiere of Star Wars’ ’The Last Jedi’.

The future owner and their lucky invited guests will have the opportunity to see Cirque Du Soliel’s Ovo, Morrissey and Art Garfunkel, among others in 2018.

The Grand Tier shares the same level as the Queen’s Box and the Hall’s royal ancestry hails  back to its opening in 1871 by Queen Victoria. Upon the Hall’s opening, Queen Victoria acquired 20 boxes on this tier.                                         

The new owner will automatically receive a membership to the Corporation of the Halls of Arts and Science. The membership was granted to individuals who helped fund the building of the hall in the 1860s, and who then acquired seats in return for governing the Hall for the nation’s benefit.

The owner will also be responsible for such duties as electing the Council and the Hall’s President, approving the level of the annual contribution, and ensuring that the purposes and traditions of the Corporation are upheld.

Jake Irwin-Brown, sales negotiator, Harrods Estates commented: “Grand Tier Boxes at The Royal Albert Hall rarely come to market, this is only the second in nearly a decade that Harrods Estates has been instructed on and this particular Box is located only two boxes away from The Royal Box: perhaps Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be part of the audience at future events, post their wedding next month."

Aside from entertainment value, Harrods points out the expected monetary appreciation of the Grand Tier Box and its hereditary potential for successive generations, given that the £3 million asking price is for a lease of 848 years.
