Yonder Collective's First Dinner

This evening marked the first Yonder Collective dinner, in which twenty creatives from the South West came together in Hart’s Bakery to share stories and enjoy some local food. If you saw my previous post, you’ll recognise my winter naked cake. I also made a raw cacao truffle cake, and carrot cake with cashew cream, both of which were vegan. We enjoyed a beautiful wholesome dinner by James of The Chocolate Bear Kitchen, before moving onto my desserts.

I heard stories from a number of people about how they had given up their day jobs to become self-employed creatives across various domains, and that it was the best decision they had made. Including that of Yonder Collective’s own Emma Chapman, who has recently made it her mission to unite creative foodies in these dinners. I saw the faces behind some of Bristol’s magazines, photography, blogs and businesses. Not only was it insightful, but it was also a reason for me to abandon my quarter-life crisis and realise that it is possible to work in a field that I love.

Without further ado here are some photos of the evening. After setting up, I was so engrossed in conversation and/or food that I didn’t take any photos of the actual event. So think of this as a ‘behind the scenes’. If you would like information about the next Yonder Collective dinner, you can visit their website here.
