What: Ferrari Roma Spider launch| When: July 2023 | Where: Somerley House
Somerley House was the spectacular destination for the Ferrari Roma Spider launch event, hosted by Meridien Modena. Nestled within the New Forest on over 7,000 acres of land, Somerley Estate was designed by architect Samuel Wyatt. Featuring a grand picture gallery, this was the focal point of mingling as the first of the VIP guests arrived.
This extra special car preview deserved an extra special menu. We had the pleasure of conjuring up canapés, bowl food and patisserie desserts to mark this wonderful, celebratory evening. While a first wave of canapés including scallop tartare, deviled chicken bun and cider braised pulled pork croquettes was circulated, guests enjoyed an Italian-themed line-up of drinks. Limoncello, Italian wines, Peronis, negronis and espresso martinis were all served up in luxurious glassware. Meanwhile, clean line seating and a bar were provided by the client to match in with the sleek lines of the evening’s main star – the Roma Spider.
Food fit for Ferrari!
Other crowd-pleasing bites on the menu included a selection of five bowl foods, which included herb crushed tuna loin and a seasonally themed green summer salad with white asparagus, courgettes, feves, peas and goat’s curd. After everyone had finished gathering in the library, guests walked through the garden to the bottom lawn. This was the destination for the car unveiling where everyone got first look at the supercar up close and personal.
To round off the evening in fitting style, we circulated a sweet selection of three desserts in glass patisserie pots: Rhubarb mousse, chocolate fudge pieces and a buttermilk & rosemary pannacotta.
What an evening – Forza Ferrari!
