On Friday 16th January 2015, I was invited to a very special event.  Sofitel Melbourne On Collins held a cocktail party which was hosted by Le Club Accor Hotels in Sofi’s Lounge with special guests Serena and Venus Williams.  Serena Williams is currently ranked Number 1 in Women’s Singles Tennis.  Australian Film Director Baz Luhrmann also attended the event.

The Williams sisters alongside Sofitel Melbourne On Collins Executive Chef John Savage, took on a challenge to see who could make the best mini Bombe Alaska.  The challenge was judged by Baz Luhrmann who claimed the delicious desserts, was a draw.

The Bombe Alaska, renamed as The Serena Surprise, will be available in No35, the restaurant of Sofitel Melbourne On Collins, during the Australian Open.

The event also consisted of well-presented servers dishing out beautiful cocktail food and endless glasses of champagne.  I was also lucky enough to have a photograph taken with Venus Williams.

I would like to thank The Sofitel Melbourne On Collins for inviting me to this amazing event.  Thank You.
