I recently had the good fortune to be invited to Giraffe Restaurant & Bar in Frith Street, Soho for a Flatbread event courtesy of Qype.
Of course when I was invited there wasn’t a question of who I would be inviting as my guest – the only other person I know to be as passionate about food as me – Chanelle of Parisienne, The House of Cupcakes.
We started off our evening with a couple of cocktails from their extensive happy hour menu – which is half price between 5-7 and then were shown into the Red Room by the Qype team.
With canapes and wine flowing we were soon acquainted with each other and ready to get our hands floury and get kneading.
We were one of the first duos to start baking and were soon giggling away at the overloaded flatbreads of some of our competitors – the boys were topping flatbreads like a Domino’s pizza.
Taking a seat to watch the second group take their places we still felt confident that we had a small chance at winning the top prize – a voucher of £50 to be used at the Giraffe chain.
All was revealed at the taste test – the overloaded flatbreads tasted good! We couldn’t get enough!
Winner Marco took the top prize – all that caculated effort of measuring and swigging wine in between rolling paid off.
It was a fantastic evening with like-minded foodies and I very much look forward to having another opportunity to attend similar events.
Thanks to the Qype team, Francessca and Nathan from Giraffe 🙂
