Last night, Bubblebox joined forces with The Dirty Apron Cooking School to host an evening of food, wine and great company. The Dirty Apron is a homegrown locale that has been sharing their passion for culinary arts since 2009. Part cooking school part fine-dining establishment, its team-building classes turn even the most gastronomically-challenged individuals into Master Chefs. With more than 20 marketing professionals in attendance from some of the country’s leading e-commerce brands, there was bound to be a bit of healthy competition.
Resident Chef Takashi Mizukami turned up the heat by dividing the attendees into three groups, each of whom were responsible for cooking one part of a three course meal. The friendly cook-off resulted in three stunning dishes that were not only edible but worthy of a five-star restaurant. First to impress was the appetizer team, who served up a mouth-watering goats cheese and arugula ravioli—dusted with walnuts, tomatoes and vincotto. Next in line was team-entrée, who prepared an extravagant herb-encrusted beef tenderloin with potato rostis and asparagus. The indisputable crowd-pleaser of the night was dessert, a delicious Frangelico-poached pear tart served with soft mascarpone.
Dubbed by many in attendance as one best networking events of all time (we’re serious!), the evening was definitely one for the books. Everyone went home with full stomachs, Bubblebox gift bags, and a strong sense of accomplishment—and the best part is, we didn’t have to wash the dishes afterwards! We at Bubblebox would like to extend our sincere thanks to our special guests, The Dirty Apron, and last but not least—Salesforce, our sponsor. Stay tuned for more fun-fuelled Bubblebox events to come!
