BOISDALE LIFE MAGAZINE  HONOURS THE PRESTIGIOUS CONTRIBUTORS AT LONDON AWARDS CEREMONY

HOSTED AT BOISDALE OF CANARY WHARF IN ASSOCIATION WITH TCS WORLD TRAVEL

On Wednesday 6th June 2018 Boisdale Life Magazine, of the eponymous restaurant group, hosted the annual Boisdale Life Editors Lunch and Awards in association with TCS World Travel to thank and celebrate all of the writers, interviewees and key partners that have supported and participated in the success of Boisdale Life magazine over the last three years.

The relationship between Boisdale and its customers extends beyond food, drink and music to an identifiable and diverse approach to life, and the event was a celebration of the wonderful writers that gave Boisdale Life its strongly libertarian and free thinking media voice.

Boisdale Life Magazine was, in part, founded on the ideals of libertarianism and often addresses real or perceived infringement by the government on individual liberties. Contributors to the magazine have included, Tom Parker Bowles, William Sitwell, Claire Fox, Ella Whelan, Mark Littlewood, Roger Bootle, Bruce Anderson, Nicolai Tolstoi and Nick Ferrari, to name a few, all of whom attended the congratulatory lunch at Boisdale of Canary Wharf. Travel Column of The Year winner Stanley Johnson was accompanied at the event by Made In Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, who reunited with her best pal following her appearance on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

The event hosts - Boisdale Life Editor-in-Chief, Ranald Macdonald and Managing Director of Boisdale Media Andrew Davies – also thanked guests at the lunch for contributions made to other areas of the magazine – notably the music content, excellent food & drink coverage, economics & politics, travel and celebrating the big interviews that have been conducted over the last three years.

The lunch began with No. 3 Gin & Tonics, a 2017 Miraval Rosé from Famille Perrin in Côtes de Provence (proprietors Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt), Shepherd Neame craft ales and the launch of a new drink on the Boisdale cocktail menu – the Baxters’ Belvedere Bull Shots.

The three-course lunch consisted of Boisdale’s Great British fare of citrus & honey cured wild Hebridean halibut with coastal herbs, wild fennel, lemon puree; roast dry aged fillet of Aberdeenshire Angus beef with flan of wild watercress, chanterelles and wood sorrel, and British cheeses.

Berry Bros & Rudd supplied delicious wines to accompany the Editors’ Lunch: 2015 Waterford Estate Chardonnay from Stellenbosch; 2015 Le ‘G’ de Chateau Guiraud from Bordeaux; 2015 Cillar de Silos Crianza, Tempranillo, from Ribera del Duero and 2014 Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch. In addition, Chivas Regal supplied a sensational 12 year old whisky to finish the lunch.

All winners, listed below, received stunning Montegrappa pens. Montegrappa, the first Italian manufacturer of superior writing instruments, was founded in 1912. Peerless craftsmanship has defined this Italian brand, known around the world for its creativity and styling.
