Blaggers' Banquet

And now for some exciting news, BONG!!!!!


"On November 15th, Londons’ Food & Drink Bloggers will be taking over Hawksmoor, the revered steakhouse in Liverpool St, for the Blaggers’ Banquet.

A first for Londoners – the Blaggers’ Banquet will be an exciting 5 course dinner with matched drinks, created entirely by food and drink bloggers, and using only food and drink that they have blagged. All proceeds will go to Action Against Hunger.

Bloggers will be the cooks and the sommeliers, front of house and the prep folk, the kitchen porters and the cleaner uppers. We’ll staff the bar, make the cocktails and make the coffee, and best of all diners can review us when we are done.

The menu will feature Chapel Down sparkling wine on arrival, Wagyu Beef and sustainable yellow kingfish among others. There will be music on arrival and canapés. Vegetarians and people with dietary restrictions will be catered for.

There will also be a blaggers’ auction, where we will be auctioning exciting items we’ve blagged. This auction will be two fold, a portion of it on the night, and the rest in the weeks following. Tickets are on sale now in pairs for £150 and one table of 5 for £375. Also 5 pairs of tickets will be auctioned starting from £75. Tickets are available on ebay: http://bit.ly/19WuSA
For any further information, please contact Niamh Shields (niamheen@gmail.com) or visit http://eatlikeagirl.com/blaggers-banquet/"


And I shall be one of the blaggers getting involved in this wonderful event. Having volunteered my services, I have been picked to work in the kitchen. Finally my skills as a potato peeler supreme have been recognised! The really funny thing is that no-one has considered my penchant for cooking wearing only skimpy undergarments, it does get hot you know. Boy, my follow blogging compardres are in for a shock next Sunday.

I will of course be reporting back after the event but if you wish to be there on the night or would like to donate then please please do go in for the auction for tickets and for the auction in the coming weeks (I will be posting details when they come available). I've seen the blag list, there are a lot of fantastic goodies to be won.

Skimpy undergarments???! Now I am scared. Very, very scared. I might just have to bring along a burkini to protect your modesty FU

Sounds like it is going to be a brilliant 'one off' night, in aid of an exceptionally worthy cause.

Best of, to you all!
