Maestrul suspansului, Alfred Hitchcock, și-a păstrat reputația și în rolul de amfitrion, de fiecare dată când a găzduit una dintre cinele sale tematice, niște feste jucate invitaților săi, de multe ori neavertizați. La una dintre ele, întreg meniul a fost albastru, la o alta, a inclus specialități precum ragout de reptilă, consomme de cobră sau un tort în forma unei biserici abandonate, construită lângă un cimitir. Mâncarea a funcționat ca aluzie și în filmele sale, dacă ne gândim la sendvișurile sinistre din Psycho sau invitația lui Grace Kelly la un picior de pui în To Catch a Thief.

Fellini: A Cinematic Dinner

Apr 05, 2019

Food was very important for Fellini in both his films and on the set. From the Ancient Romans’ feast in Satyricon to his own family’s simple cooking in Amarcord, Fellini’s films employ the act of eating and drinking to draw the often bizarre storyline. The meals behind the silver screen also contained only good food that was fully prepared and seasoned by his team of expert caterers. Our next event is heavily inspired by the dreamlike worlds of Fellini. Expect an oneiric setup that will transport you on the sets of this iconic filmmaker.

Love is Blind

Feb 22, 2019

We think love is blind but blindness can be beyond ravishing if put in the right context. We set up to offer our guests an experience that engaged all of the senses, including those slightly neglected.

To make this happen the guests wore a blindfold, that enhanced the experiences prepared for them: enchanting their ears, delighting their taste buds and enveloping them into plentiful of flavours. The mystery has been gradually revealed, as they were guided through an emotional carousel. 

On February 21st, at 7.30 PM sharp, the guests were expected at the main entrance of Universul Palace, from where they were led towards a night of mystery and lavishness.
