Love on a Plate at Hyde Park Corner on Mother’s Day

Hyde Park Corner is celebrating Moms this Mother’s Day with a wonderfully unique event which will capture the imagination and a priceless memory at the same time!

Made for Mom

It was Apicius, the first Century Roman gourmand, who ostensibly coined the phrase “We eat first with our eyes”. And he wasn’t wrong. Eating is a journey for all the senses and a masterfully plated dish draws us in before we even know what is on the plate.

On Sunday, 8 May Hyde Park Corner has partnered with two of our most-loved restaurants to host plating workshops on Mother’s Day this year. Olives & Plates and Just Teddy Fine Boulangerie & Pâtisserie are renowned for their immaculate and creative plating; these plating workshops will offer not only an exclusive opportunity to see how they do it; but the perfect Mother’s Day experience too.

The workshops will take place in two workshop timeslots at each restaurant on Sunday, 8 May from 10am to 11am and again from 3pm to 4pm with limited seating capacity at each workshop. Perfect timing for a Mother’s Day activity either after breakfast or lunch at one of the restaurants at Hyde Park Corner!

Participants can look forward to learning getting the lowdown from a professional chef on:

  • Significance of food plating
  • Simple guide for home chefs, using easily available ingredients
  • Do’s & don’ts for food plating
  • Tools required for plating
  • Ingredients and flavours to be used during plating

And after the workshop, the champagne will flow while participants indulge in a delectable buffet. What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than mastering the art of plating?

Reserve your seat https://www.webtickets.co.za/v2/event.aspx?itemid=1514435874. Ticket price also includes a Hyde Park Corner branded apron and a pair of gloves.

Keep an eye out for our Instagram competition too – a private plating session is up for grabs!
