Senior representatives from many of the Concerto Group’s clients joined us at a special dinner at Landing Forty Two, a dedicated event space on the 42nd floor of the Leadenhall Building also known as ‘the Cheesegrater’.
Guests from companies including Deloitte, Edelman, The Financial Times, GlaxoSmithKline, Google, Louis Vuitton, SocieteGenerale, PWC, Mitsubishi and Bloomberg were treated to a champagne and canapé reception with sensational views across the capital, before taking their seats for a dinner by our talented team.
The evening began with a drinks reception, before guests were seated for a decadent three-course meal with matching wines, provided by Vintage Cellars and selected by Oli from Create.
A starter of ‘Onion & Sorrel’ combined Confit Roscoff onion, aerated potato mousse, sorrel leaves and yoghurt, and was accompanied by a complementary wine, Riesling ‘Tradition’ 2014, Domaine Stenze-Buecher, Alsace.
The main course of ‘Aged Short Rib & London Porter’ was served with oyster emulsion, with navets, truffle and ale, and accompanied by Tannat Syrah ‘Voetspore’ 2012, Arendskloof, South Africa.
The meal ended with a classic dessert, ‘Ile Flottante’, strawberries and ice cream, served with Sauternes 2012, Domaine Sichel, France.
Full production was provided by Vibration and Fullcircle supplied the entertainment.
Concerto Group CEO Sam Gill said: “Landing Forty Two is a landmark venue, and the fact that we had a 95% turnout on the night is due testament to the pulling-power of this iconic venue. The positive feedback that we have already received on Create’s bespoke menus and new approach to food-sourcing and presentation from the 160 clients attending has also been invaluable. There is no better way to present Create’s brand and ethos, than putting plates in front of our current and prospective clients.”
