Here at Zaff HQ we like to think outside the box, so when forward thinking events agency “We Are Family” approached us about an immersive, futuristic birthday party set in a Medieval castle, we couldn’t resist flexing our creative muscles.
Teaming up with our favourite long-time collaborator, celebrity food artist, Tom Wolfe, we pulled out all the stops to create a truly sensory experience where guests were transported into a world of virtual reality, artificial intelligence and space travel.
Playful as ever, Tom created bespoke, wearable canapé trays, including a dramatic, yet whimsical headpiece to showcase some Zafferano favourites including our decadent Black Truffle Macaron and Kobe Beef Tartare with Wasabi Emulsion.
Aside from clever canapés and beautiful bowls, we added our own take on 21st Century food theatre with a neon burger bar and Asian noodle stand, serving meltingly tender Wagyu beef sliders and zingy Singapore noodles – Tokyo-style cyber street food …in Kent!
We’re used to guests’ faces lighting up when we pass around the desserts, but here, this was literally the case! Perfect spheres of strawberry and orange glow-in-the-dark jellies proved a real crowd-pleaser, especially when served from Tom’s famous jelly purses, yet another of his crazily creative food receptacles…..the result was out of this world!
