Last week I attended the launch party for Lippincott Living presented by Blurredge. Lippincott Living is a project to develop eight luxury townhouses to be built by Spring 2010 at College and Lippincott. The launch party was set up to allow people to view the showroom as well as a complete model home to understand the vision of Lippincott Living in a classy and enjoyable atmosphere. I was extremely impressed by the showroom. The modern interiors are beautifully designed and extremely functional, making me feel inspired to one day get a great job and live in such a fabulous place!
I was also very impressed with the hors d'oeuvres which were provided by L-EAT catering. Of course, for research purposes, I had to try each hors d'oeuvre and enjoyed every single one! My favourite was the pomegranate cured salmon on yukon gold rosti with avocado yogurt and a chive garnish. The potato rosti was crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside. The pomegranate cured salmon was deliciously flavourful and was complemented wonderfully by the avocado yogurt and chives. Some of the other hors d'oeuvres were:
- Wild mushroom and goats cheese tartlets with truffle oil essence
- Polenta rounds with lemon herbed ricotta and green and white asparagus
- Miniature steak au poivre sandwiches with arugula cress and bernaise aioli
- Salt cod and leek fritters with green goddess aioli
- Honey garlic chicken in a wonton cone with carrot frizz
Another favourite of mine from the evening was dessert! The dessert of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate cheesecake lollipops were delicious and had a whimsical flair. All the hors d'oeuvres were paired with a delicious Prosecco, which helped to put me at ease in a beautifully decorated room surrounded by stylish and classy business people. I wouldn't have expected anything less than fabulous from such an incredible design company, and I was certainly not let down.
