PERRIER JOUET AT MAGAZINE, HYDE PARK | LONDON EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY

It's always a treat to cover events for Campbell Bell Communications and their client Perrier Jouet.  The venues are spectacular and the food sublime.  I had only seen new restaurant Magazine, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, which is attached to the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in Kensington Gardens from the outside.  It's dramatic saddleback structure is very distinctive and the height of the ceilings and amount of glass makes it great for daytime event photography.  Talented German chef Oliver Lange prepared a menu inspired by and using Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque.  The journalists (and lucky me) enjoyed a champane paired spring menu of Sea Bream Tartar, Fennel and Belle Epoque Jelly served with the newly launched cuvee Belle Epoque Edition Premiere followed by Cornfed Chicken, Kimchi Pears and Black Rice Crisp with Belle Epoque 2006.  Dessert was the very subtle flavouried Pomelo, Fromage Blanc and Almonds served with Blason Rose.
