Warm summer evenings are just the ticket for hosting an impromptu get together with friends. So to celebrate the start of summer we hosted our own Domu Summer Party and invited some of our favourite bloggers to join us and enjoy delicious food and drink.
Themed around our Summer Essentials range, we fired up the VonShef Electric BBQ and switched on the VonShef Premium Blender to whip up some culinary and cocktail treats for all of our guests.
As an extra special treat, we also invited third generation butcher, James Taylor from Bangers & Bacon, to give a sausage making masterclass – much to the delight of Angela from Days In Bed and Pamela from Spamella B who enjoyed James’ unqiue recipe using elephant garlic (you can check out the recipe here).
Once all the afternoon’s sausages had been prepped, Ellie from Eleanor Graceful, Stacey from Style Speaks Louder Than Words, Karen from Well I Guess This is Growing Up, Katie from Frankies Weekend, Sarah from Sequin This and Claire Good Egg Foodie took a sneak peak at our new products launched for summer – including our Sizzling Summer BBQ range, Urban Spaces gardening kits and our Sundown Cinema out-door entertainment area. Once the food was cooked to perfection we all sat down to enjoy freshly grilled jerk chicken, steak skewers, home-made garlic sausages, BBQ halloumi and a chat about what everyone loves about summer.
Our friends at Comté provided a delicious selection of mature and young cheeses, which were served up using the VonShef Fondue Set. Drinks came courtesy of new cactus water brand, True Nopal, with our blogger friends enjoying refreshing Cactus Cosmopolitans and non-alcoholic Cactus Health Smoothies.
Once all the BBQ food was served up, attention turned to dessert (everyone’s favourite part!). The team created colourful cake pops using the VonShef Snack Maker while our new Stand Mixer (in pistachio) took centre stage whipping up a delicious twist on whipped cream – adding small amounts of basil for a unique taste.
