Blendtec Blogger Event
“Will it Blend” the invitation said, “please find your invitation to the exclusive “Will It Blend Blogger Event”. “You will experience the most powerful blender to hit Australian shores and meet the man behind the brand, internet sensation Tom Dickson”.
Wow I’d never heard of Tom Dickson or his brand Blentec before, they said he’d blended Steve Jobs’ first ever iphone. Curiosity aroused I turned up to Melbourne’s hottest new event space The Establishment Studios with my daughters Emma and Hayley to see what all the fuss was about.
Of course you don’t want to be blending rakes and mobile phones at home!!! The blender makes great smoothies, whips cream, chops cabbage, nuts, mixes up banana bread, makes breadcrumbs, mixes dough, batters, the list goes on and comes with a cool recipe book which includes a raw and gluten free section. An Australian Blendtec website has just been launched if you’d like to take a peek.
Food and styling at the event was by Tommy Collins Events, all the dips and chicken filling for the sandwiches were mixed in the blender. If you’re a foodie like me you’ll love these next photos, I hope you pick up some ideas for when you’re entertaining next. Presenting food on boards is so simple but effective and raising some platters adds height to your display so it doesn’t look so flat.
Tom telling us about the blender…
He’s going to what??? Blend that rake..
Another pair of sweet sisters..
The Establishment Studios is a fantastic place to shoot photos they offer studio hire, event styling and prop hire. It’s owned by the best stylist in Australia Glen Proebstel and his partner Rachel Hart. Glen also styles for many magazines including Inside Out, Gourmet Traveller, Country Style, Elle Decoration Uk, Living Etc Uk to name a few so I felt lucky to be able to visit and take photos there.
I haven’t received my dip recipe yet so will leave you with this Minted Pea and Yoghurt Dip from Jamie Oliver that looks equally as delicious and healthy.
Disclosure: I was invited to this event courtesy of Undertow Media. I received an apron and a blendtec cookbook. This in no way affected my opinion, all my opinions are my own.
