Feeling like a flavour adventure? HQ launches its new Mediterranean inspired Aperitivo Board pairing menu with Mediterranean Delicacies and the Brandhouse World Class Reserve collection. The launch took place on Wednesday, 27 August 2014, at Headquarters Restaurant, Heritage Square, Cape Town.
Overflowing with flavour fusions, World Class introduced their four new signature cocktails, which were demonstrated to the audience before tasting. Each cocktail was paired gorgeously with four generously sized tapas integrating Mediterranean Delicacies’ ingredients prepared in HQ’s unique culinary style.
Raising the bar in experimental, experiential gastronomy, different elements of sensory stimulants were brought into the mix. For example, helium balloons with Pastis were released with the Dill-Lectable cocktails, with the goal being to add an aromatic olfactory enhancement. Something different.
Another well paired duo were the smoked salmon & cucumber parcels (filled with avocado, Mediterranean Delicacies sweet chilli cream cheese, caper berries, and lime) accompanied by the oh so British High Tea cocktail which comprised Tanqueray London Dry, cucumber, citrus, mint with a splash of tonic.
Comedian Mum-z hosted the evening with special performances by singer Ricky Botsis. Guests were encouraged to keep their phones at hand and ears peeled for the Foodie Twitter Quiz (Twiz) which saw three lucky guests return home with Medi Deli and HQ hampers!
The new Mediterranean Delicacies Aperitivo Board special will be available at HQ every weekday from 5 PM to 7 PM for R250.00 and includes the tapas boards and four cocktails.
