Marks & Spencer celebrated the launch of their 2017 Spirit of Summer Food Collection on Tuesday evening, 13th June at The Woollen Mills Rooftop Terrace, Dublin 1. The event was attended by 60 of Ireland’s well-known foodies and influencers, who sampled the hero food and drinks from the range. Inspired by the authentic flavours of the Mediterranean, this year’s collection encapsulates the feeling of only needing a knife and fork to travel this summer.
Media were taken on a unique culinary journey at the event, experiencing the best regional dishes and ingredients from Sicily to Santorini, Barcelona to Beirut. Dishes were showcased at four food market stalls including; From the Grill, Salad Bar, Pizza and Sweet Treats.
Guests were also treated to hand rolled ice-cream designed by Arctic Stone, using M&S Spirit of Summer gelato flavours, Strachiatella Gelato and Tiramisu Gelato. They also sampled a selection of fresh new flavours from the Spirit of Summer drinks range including Murcia Lemon Bucks Fizz, Apertivo Fizz and a fiery Bloody Mary cocktail. All produce served on the evening is available from the new M&S Spirit of Summer range.
