As you may know, one of my favourite words is serendipity I’ve posted about how Twitter creates serendipity and builds community. Do you remember the last time you had an experience which left you on such a natural high, it’s all you could think about for days afterwards? An experience when once finished, you ask yourself and the others with you, “What just happened?” “What WAS that?”
Well, thanks to Twitter and its ability to create serendipity and build community, I was invited by my friend Mahei (aka @Iconic88) to an interesting breakfast event in Sydney. “Iconic” and I first met at Coffee Mornings in Surry Hills after I extended an invitation via Twitter. When I arrived, much to my surprise and delight were other like-minds who I have come to know via Twitter over the past year.
It gets better – how can I describe the talented, beautiful and passionate chef Bridget Davis? Known only to me as @Bridget_CooKs on Twitter, she is living proof that there are amazing people on Twitter, and you should do everything in your power to meet Bridget and experience her culinary creations. In fact this week you have that opportunity, with a special Media 140 Food and the real-time web event about to commence.
I arrived at breakfast, to be greeted by our host Mahei who introduced me to Bridget and the other guests. After being treated to espresso, Bridget guided us to a working kitchen inside the Electrolux Australia offices in the Sydney suburb of Mascot. It”s so beautifully set up you feel right at home.
We all got talking immediately (thanks to Twitter and the coffee mornings/tweetups we are all a part of) it felt like we were a bunch of old friends catching up for a regular meal together. Amazing!
Now on to the food. Bridget Davis is a genius. Have a look at the photos, but here is what we were treated to for breakfast.
