This year’s BIMA (British Interactive Media Association) Awards took place at Victoria House in Bloomsbury in September. The tech-savvy event was attended by 700 of the industry’s brightest minds, who were treated to an awards ceremony with a gourmet twist!
The ceremony, which was presented by BBC television presenter Normski, celebrated the best of British digital talent, awarding the most innovative projects and people. This was of course no ordinary awards ceremony; the night called for something unique – and our trailblazing manapés were the perfect fit.
The night began with a heartier take on traditional canapés, guests tucked into mini beef burgers and three bean burgers with London Kitchen relish, as well as roasted Peking duck pancakes, before the night’s winners were revealed.
Following awards presentations to agency of the year Holler, startup of the year FutureLearn, top location the Pepsi Max Unbelievable Bus Shelter and many others, bowl food was served.
On offer was a selection of our favourite informal bowl food choices, including the ever-popular London Kitchen Pie Shop, a choice of steak and ale pie with mash, or leek and mushroom. Guests also enjoyed Thai green chicken curry with jasmine rice and fresh herbs, or crunchy thai vegetables, both beautifully decorated in edible flowers and bean sprouts.
As the evening celebrations got underway we kept guests fuelled with their next selection of London Kitchen manapés. This time the menu included Hickory smoked frankfurters, served the traditional way with sauerkraut, mustard and ketchup in Viennoise buns, as well as our mini hot dog José, a Mexican take on the original with tomato salsa, avocado, sour cream and pickled jalapeño. These were accompanied by little cones of chilli cheese fries, and three bean chilli cheese fries, or miniature buckets of cinema popcorn for those looking for something a little lighter.
Guests then raised the roof at the after party, where music was provided by the world-renowned DJ Yoda, named “one of the ten DJs to see before you die” by Q. Guests also enjoyed interactive installations, a silent disco and of course, plenty more delicious food!
