Top Welsh Chefs Staged a Celebration of Welsh Food at Cardiff Audi

The Cardiff Audi Showroom in Cardiff Gate Business Park held a spectacular launch event for the new RS4 on Wednesday (25) April 2018.

The theme of the event was ‘A Celebration of Welsh Food’ and its title, ‘Audi Senses’. The Welsh foodie theme set out to heighten the senses of the fifty or so VIP guests who attended, by stimulating sight and sound through brilliant cookery demonstrations using liquid nitrogen and incorporating the latest menu trends in the Welsh fine dining scene. Guests’ taste and smell were then treated to delicious Michelin-starred and award-winning, expert cookery demonstrations and canapés, where the Cardiff Audi dealership was filled with aromas of gastronomic greatness.

Inviting its Member Chefs to cater this prestigious customer event showcased the link between the Audi brand values of ‘Excellence in Product, Excellence in Customer Service’ and Michelin-starred food and five-star service levels experienced in Welsh fine dining restaurants, headed-up by the visiting top chefs.

Chris Knibbs, Head of Business at Cardiff Audi said

“This event proved a great success.  Excellence in customer service and product are the Audi brand values and indeed our values at Cardiff Audi. These are resonated through working with top chefs and front of house professionals via The Chefs’ Forum.  We will be staging regular customer events at our Cardiff dealership, treating our valued customers to the finest Welsh cuisine. Showcasing top chefs and optimum levels of hospitality really shows our commitment to customers that we really believe in what we do.  The feedback from guests as well as the chefs who took part was really positive and it was great to showcase the new Audi RS4 and other Audi Sport models alongside the finest Welsh culinary talent and gastronomic science.”
