I’ve been to a few Google City Experts events, and so I know those guys can show people a good time. And last Wednesday evening’s event was no exception. In fact, it might have been the best one yet.
The venue for the evening was The Pompadour by Galvin restaurant, which sits proudly in the five-star Caledonian Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The theme was winter whiteout and this spectacular hotel looked even prettier than normal decorated with snow-laden branches and wintery back drops.
The evening started with a gin cocktail and a selection of moreish canapés. What followed was a three-course meal of the highest standard, which was so delicious. We started with shellfish, which I am a huge fan of, before moving onto partridge. I’d never tried partridge before, but I loved it and can’t wait to have it again.
When it was time for dessert, it was an event in itself: a 3D cake of one of Edinburgh’s landmarks. It looked almost too pretty to eat … but in the end I did. You can’t say no to cake, right?
After we had chatted to a few other city experts and made the most of the photo booth, we returned to our table for coffee and petit fours. They tasted as good as they looked and the mini donuts really were to die for!
