A Celebration of Art and Design with Vogue, Vogue Living & Wish Magazine @ Rockpool, Sydney
My husband and I attended the Georg Jensen dinner at Rockpool in Sydney on Monday the 25th August, 2014. I always look forward to Georg Jensen dinners and this one was particularly special as it marks Georg Jensen's 110th Anniversary. I was also excited to see the new space Rockpool Sydney occupies since its move from The Rocks.
Guests were greeted at the door by so many friendly warm Georg Jensen staff members and ushered upstairs to the bar area for champagne and nibbles. We were able to look at the Fall Winter 2014 Jewellery Collection as well as finding out more about what Georg Jensen have in store at the moment.
I will be looking forward to heading into the Georg Jensen Castlereagh St store for Vogue Fashion's Night Out this Thursday the 4th September, 2014.
I really like the Dune Collection we saw in the bar area (see picture 3 below) as well as the Fusion Range that could be seen downstairs near all the lovely table settings. The Fusion Range has been a solid favourite of mine for a while.
Guests then headed downstairs to be seated for the lovely dinner. Entrées were Chirashi Zushi of tuna, kingfish and squid - this is one of my favourite things to eat whilst in Japan and I was very happy to have the Rockpool deconstructed version. It was wonderfully fresh. The main was Roasted South Australian Lamb served with a red wine from France. Many of my Fashion Blender™ readers would know I am a BIG dessert fan - I think my favourite part of the dinner was the Rockpool dessert we were served last. Vacherin of Pandan Custard with Coconut Parfait. This was also wonderful, light and zesty which was a great finish to the meal.
We heard the Australian Chamber Orchestra between courses which was also lovely. I was transported to another world - this was particularly welcoming since my week had been so busy. Thanks once again Georg Jensen, Vogue, Vogue Living and Wish Magazine for treating us to such a lovely 110 Year Celebration!
