Peter's Pink Ribbon Breakfast 2019

It was even rosier than usual inside Peter’s Of Kensington for Thursday’s Champagne Pink Ribbon Breakfast where the guests included Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s wife, Jenny.

We hosted a fundraiser for The National Breast Cancer Foundation where 100% of everything raised on the day went to the charity. This amounted to over $40,000.

Special thanks to all those who donated prizes

 

 

Kylie Kwong & Furi Knives Demonstration

A huge thankyou to all of those who attended our Kylie Kwong & Furi Knives Demonstration, held in the Peter’s Demonstration Kitchen on Saturday 11th May.

In what’s fast becoming our favourite annual tradition, Kylie once again showed off the finesse and practicality of Furi knives by creating tantalising dishes including Steamed Fish Fillet With Ginger & Spring Onions, Beef & Black Bean and Sung Choi Bao of Vegetables.

 

 

Mother’s Day High Tea

Due to last year’s success, we once again hosted a Mother’s Day High Tea on Sunday 12th May at our Birkenhead Point store.

Across two sessions, all the mum’s who attended enjoyed a pampered day drinking premium loose leaf tea or coffee while snacking on fine sweets, small savoury treats and scrumptious buttermilk scones.

There were plenty of prizes and giveaways on the day, and each mum walked away with a fabulous goody bag. A huge shout out to Todd and the team for putting on such a lavish event - we can’t wait to see all the mum’s again next year!

 

 

Georgia Barnes & Pyrex Platinum Demonstration

Saturday April 6th | 11am to 1pm | Kensington Store

New Pyrex ambassador, Masterchef 2015’ runner up, home cook, nutritionist, supreme food stylist and recipe creator, Georgia Barnes might well be one of the sunniest personalities to have ever graced the Peter’s of Kensington’s Demonstration Kitchen. .

At the heart of everything she does, she’s motivated to expand people’s food knowledge, increase their kitchen confidence and for them to cook more. She’s also the first to admit that baking isn’t easy, but lucky for us, she showed us the way forward with a few simple tips and tricks.

Georgia recently launched the Pyrex Platinum Premium Bakeware collection and on Saturday, April 6, from 11am to 1pm, she demonstrated its beauty and practicality with the following treats; Easy White Chocolate & Berry Custard Tarts, Mini Chocolate & Coconut Bundt Cakes and Chorizo, Tomato & Feta Tart.

 

 

Katherine Sabbath Cake Decorating Masterclass

Friday 21 - Saturday 22 - Sunday 23 December | 12pm to 4pm | Kensington Store

Katherine Sabbath’s Cake Decorating Masterclasses were held in late December last year and the store was buzzing as her devotees mastered her famous White Chocolate Bauble Cake.

These classes in the Kensington Demonstration Kitchen were not surprisingly a sell out with everyone leaving with their own boxed ‘Bauble Cake’ to take home. You would have thought that Christmas Day had already arrived.

A big thank you to Katherine Sabbath for letting us in on her secrets and to everyone who came along for this incredible creative journey. Meanwhile, keep reading our In-Store News, to find out about the other exciting workshops taking place this year.

Forget about the property market, the most delicious houses in town were found at Peter’s of Kensington’s Gingerbread House Decorating Workshops for Kids & for Adults, last year

Held in mid-December, they were a sell out. Our superstar In-store chef demonstrated how to decorate your own Christmas Gingerbread House with all the delicious gingerbread real estate wrapped in clear cellophane afterwards with a pretty bow at the top.

Special thanks to all of our budding gingerbread house decorators for coming along and joining in the fun.

European Royalty make exclusive visit to Peters of Kensington for charity event


The stunningly beautiful and deeply philanthropic HRH Princess Tatiana, made an exclusive visit to our Kensington store on Tuesday 5th June for a very special presentation and signing of her book, A Taste of Greece. With the Moet champagne flowing and Sydney’s most stylish socialites in attendance, the Princess remained relaxed and composed as she greeted guests and signed copies of her amazing book.

The fashionable aristocrat is the wife of Prince Nikolaos, son of Constantine II, who reigned as King of Greece until the monarchy was abolished in 1973. Close family of Prince Philip, the couple met earlier this month with Prince Charles and Camilla on the royal couple’s official visit to Greece.

Tatiana and Nikolaos were married in 2010 and currently reside in a fashionable inner-city suburb in Athens. The couple married in a three-day celebration on the magical Greek island of Spetses, an event widely described as “The Wedding of the Year” by the international press and attended by a who’s who of royalty, including our own Princess Mary of Denmark.

The Princess’ attitude to her charity work and desire to “make a difference” is reflected in her book, A Taste of Greece, in which she’s partnered with Boroume - an innovative charity founded in 2011 and empowered by passionate volunteers dedicated to ending food waste. The book includes contributions from 36 celebrities who share a love of Greece, including Tatiana Casiraghi, Margaret Atwood, Arianna Huffington and Valentino Garavani.

As a professional photographer, the Prince is in Australia for the inauguration of his exhibition, PHOS: Journey of Light, which has opened at the Hellenic Museum in Melbourne and will run until July 29, 2018. As the Greek word for “light,” Phos is an intriguingly mesmerising examination of the way the special properties of Greek light interplay with the beauty of Greek seascapes.

Furthermore, he is in Australia to support one of his charities, Axion Hellas, which like our Royal Flying Doctor Service, supports vulnerable groups living in remote and inaccessible locations. Due to the unfavourable economic conditions and significant distances from large urban centres, these areas lack easy access to health services, education, infrastructure and cultural activities. Axion Hellas aims to improve, promote and develop the intellectual, cultural, professional and social level of life of those isolated communities.

Peter’s of Kensington has donated $15,000 towards the very worthy charities.

Peter's Pink Ribbon Breakfast

The annual Peter’s of Kensington Pink Ribbon Breakfast bought an extra rosy glow to our store on Thursday, October 26 and it wasn’t just the pretty archway of pink balloons over the doorway.

Our feel good event of the year, which raised an impressive $30,710, was a sell out and a testament to our loyal customers and suppliers who are always keen to get behind the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It’s a cause so close to all of our hearts because we all know someone who’s been touched by breast cancer.

Showing a generosity of spirit in keeping with the Pink Ribbon theme, arriving guests including Real Housewives of Sydney’s Nicole Gazal O’Neil, in a fetching pink dress with hair to match, were presented with crystal flutes of Moet & Chandon with Peter’s of Kensington’ gift bags on every seat. The tables were set with Miranda Kerr’s collection of Royal Albert china and resting on them was an indulgent spread of scones, pastries, cakes and pastries, rivalling even tea at The Ritz.

 

With a charming duo providing the entertainment, one of the highlights of the day was the raffle with over 100 valuable prizes kindly donated by some of the biggest names in kitchewares, fashion and homewares.

No wonder that all of our guests left happy, judging by the number of pale pink balloons merrily bobbing up and down as they were carried along Anzac Parade following the event. But not to worry if you missed out because the countdown is already on for next year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
