Dinner for the International Womens Forum
In May 2018, Ed Dixon Food Design had the privilege of creating 32 individual dinner parties for over 300 guests at homes across Melbourne for the IWF Cornerstone Conference.
Instead of the regular conference gala-style dinner, members of the IWF from all over the world were welcomed into the homes of Melbourne hosts for a more intimate gathering and a genuine insight into the lives and families of their Australian counterparts.
EDFD designed a bespoke menu for this event, treating our international guests to an Australiana themed menu with beautiful local produce. Dishes included feta brined corn fed chicken with salt bush salad and native lemon pepper oil and for dessert, an aussie classic – individual pavolvas with coconut cream, scorched pineapple and lime syrup!
Working with their wonderful event organiser, the night was a fantastic success and we received some beautiful feedback from the guests.
“I cannot think of a time where I have ever been involved in something so ambitious that played out
so effortlessly” – Stephanie
“The incredible team at EDFD lead the army going in 32 different directions! I have known Edwina a long time and knew that they would be able to nail it!” – Catherine
“The evening was as great as it could be…the food was excellent! – Mina
“The food and exquisite service delighted all” – Andrea
“It all worked out so well, and I was very impressed with the staff – they were friendly, super efficient, very responsive and a pleasure to have in my home! In fact, that’s the way I should always entertain! – Sandie
Having grown from a one woman show in 2001, EDFD has strong ties to the importance of female entrepreneurship and we are so excited to have played a small role in this global gathering of outstanding women leaders. A huge thank you to our amazing EDFD team for all the planning and seamless execution of this event!
