Imagine this: you’re sitting at a restaurant – and not just any regular run-of-the-mill place, but a high-end, fancy restaurant. You’re out for dinner with friends, laughing and catching up. Your food arrives, your mouth begins to water, you go to take your first bite and then…WHAM!
You just took a tomato in the face…
Bet you weren’t expecting that! Two words: food fight!
Last Monday, Schweppes held the first ever fine-dining food fight! It’s all part of a new TV campaign for Schweppes Mineral Water, and SheSaid got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at all the food-fighting action.
Prepare yourself. It’s time to have your cake and throw it too…
Three-hatted chef Martin Benn of Sydney’s Sepia restaurant prepared a mouth-watering menu inspired by the flavours of the Schweppes mineral water range. The menu consisted of dishes perfect for the food fighting action, such chilled spiced squidgy tomatoes and baby basil, super sticky soba noodles and prawns, and yuzu and raspberry grenades.
Each course not only delivered on taste, but also trajectory – the Golden Eggs being a definite favourite – tiny wafer baskets stuffed with pickled ginger cream and persimmon, so popular, they are going to be added to Sepia’s menu. It was a food-fighting frenzy to say the least, and we cannot wait to see the final cut of the ad, tempting us to start a food fight of our very own when it airs in mid-March.
