Food & Lycra #WeCookYouEat 1st Anniversary Party Recap
It's been well over two weeks after our first anniversary party and we are still thinking "WOAH, what a crazy night!"
Throwing a party is not an easy gig. Throw in the challenge of cooking for over two hundred people, tube strikes, and bad weather and you start to ask yourself "WTF are we doing?!", "Are people going to come?!", "Did we give ourselves too big of a challenge?!" etc etc - you get the picture! Oh, and did we mention we threw in a farewell send-off to our sister, Ja, who is off travelling South America too (FYI - for those interested in travel journals, check out her blog, Ja Ja in Wonderland!)?!
THANKFULLY, because of all of YOU beautiful, amazing people, you made our #WeCookYouEat party the most memorable and exciting night in our lives.
We can't even begin to express how much we appreciate everyone coming down to celebrate with us and all those who messaged us letting us know they have been waiting for 45mins at the bus stop to get down to our party, but eventually couldn't make it. The sponsors and all the amazing brands who wanted to give a little something back with the products they provided for our guests gets a massive HUG from us - our guests got the chance to sample the delicious Total Greek Yogurt, Propercorn, Linwood Health Food, Nuun, Bounce Balls, Urban Fruit and, of course, our BFFs, Vita Coco. Not only that, but a lucky few won amazing prizes from Lululemon, BOOM Cycle, Le Coq Sportif, Techno Gym, Batiste, Lacoste, Woei, Inner City Sports Coaching, Cupcakes by Candice and Fitbit. The talented, charming and swoon-worth Rocky Nti serenaded us and our guests with an acoustic featuring tracks from his new EP Childhood. And, of course, massive shout out to our stunning HYPE GIRLS for helping us out on the night, and running the show whilst we cooked up some goods. Thank you to all for the support *WIPEZ TEARZ*.
We're so glad everyone loved our food too, it went down an absolute treat! We double fried some chips topped with some BOOM (if we do say ourselves ;-D) AZN Fried Chicken, Porc Au Caramel and Cheesy Kim Chee. Then we served Laura's Raspberry Panna Cotta and Kim's Almond Chocolate Butter Cup!
It was a super busy and hectic evening, but everything planned out like clockwork. We're so glad you could all join us and experience Food & Lycra in real life, outside of the social web. We're so much more than just a website with a few social channels - this is just the beginning of the journey! Watch this space.
Let's relive #WeCookYouEat through videos and pictures yoooo!
