Chobani Yoghurt Bloggers Dinner

On Wednesday night I was invited to a Chobani Yoghurt bloggers dinner at Edmunds Restaurant in Brindleyplace, Birmingham. The Birmingham blogging crew were all there - Carmen, Sara, Sophie, Hayley, Chloe and Emma as well as some new faces and food bloggers too. Chobani is a thick, strained yoghurt, high in protein and fat free! Upon arrival we were given lethal yummy Chobani cocktails, a concoction of alcohol, fruity stuff and Chobani Yoghurt. We all had a good catch up before being seated, and then given bubbly champagne before the food came out.

I'm no food blogger, but i do know that the whole thing was a taste sensation! The amuse bouche was first, it was leek and potato with Chobani yoghurt, creamy and refreshing. To start i opted for pigeon, it was fairly odd but once my mouth got used to it i really enjoyed it, the sauce and blueberry drizzle went really well together. The main was rare fillet beef, creamed potatoes, mushrooms and a Chobani gravy - it was so juicy and tasty! For dessert i chose Rum Baba, it was lovely and light so a great way to finish off my meaty meal. With each course came a different alcoholic beverage, white wine, red wine, more champagne...I'll be honest, i had a bit too much to drink and ended up with the weirdest photos...most of them were selfies and silly things, so i apologise for the lack of snaps but what can you do, i'm a lightweight.

The restaurant itself is really posh, Didier the chef is a little French man and did a great job with the Chobani inspired menu. I'm coeliac and find it difficult to eat out at restaraunts, however Edmunds catered for all my needs and more, so thank you very much! Also the service was impeccable and all the staff were just amazing, helpful and lovely - Jeff the waiter was a bit of a lad and looked after us so well! Thanks Jeff!
The whole night was SO much fun, we had lots of giggles and learned lots about Chobani as a brand, plus the drinks and fine dining was too yummy!
