Oktoberfest Launch at Bavarian Bier Cafe, Eagle Street Pier

To celebrate the launch of Oktoberfest, COCOM partnered with Bavarian Bier Café Eagle Street Pier, to host a media preview event and bring in Oktoberfest in true German style. With waitresses in dirndls and the launching of an Oktoberfest specific menu, the evening was a night of cultural celebration.

In attendance were Brisbane’s most influential foodies, bloggers and media personalities, who indulged in the authentic Bavarian cuisine of German pretzels, pork knuckle, pork belly, and steins of pure German biers as a preview to the official public launch keg tapping event on Friday 18 September 2015.

For the festival, Bavarian Bier Café is offering five Oktoberfest biers, which have been brewed within the city limits of Munich since the 1300s. These are five of the six Biers officially served at Oktoberfest in Munich, uniquely brewed for the festival each year.

The night was topped off with a spectacular keg tapping, displaying the finest of German traditions.

The Oktoberfest celebrations will be on at all Bavarian Bier Café restaurants for the whole month of October.

STREET x STYLE Art Installation by Anthony Lister

In preparation for Fall in Love with Fashion Autumn 2015, The Myer Centre approached COCOM to creatively conceptualise the heart behind the Autumn Winter 2015 campaign. In response, COCOM was able to conduct an array of free fashion and beauty workshops and events, including an edgy art installation by internationally renowned street artist, Anthony Lister. Lister has created countless masterpieces all across the world, and his paintings are worth thousands of dollars. His most impressive pieces, however, can be found on the streets of Australia’s major cities, making him ideal for The Myer Centre’s Street meets Style feature of the Autumn Winter 2105 campaign.

 

COCOM flew the street artist to Brisbane to create an impressive street art installation with a fashionable twist for public viewing in The Myer Centre. The creative piece was displayed to celebrate the launch of their Autumn Winter 2015 campaign, and to inspire The Myer Centre customers to fall in love with fashion.

 

Anthony has helped pioneer the stencil and street art movement in Brisbane before moving to New York in 2003 to work with his mentor, Max Gimblett and has had exhibitions and commissions around the globe. In addition to a strong background in street art he employs a sophisticated, fine art, painterly style with a high and low culture clash in the content of his paintings, drawings and installations.

 

COCOM’s launch of The Myer Centre’s campaign drew a significant crowd, all in awe of the Lister’s talent. The exclusive artwork was painted over several hours, and was then displayed in the centre for the remainder of the Fall in Love with Fashion Autumn 2015 campaign.

Saké Restaurant & Bar Cherry Blossom Festival Media Event

This September Saké Restaurant & Bar is bringing the beauty of Hanami, the Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival to Brisbane. On Thursday August 29 COCOM was there to facilitate a sneak peek of the upcoming celebrations by inviting a select group of Brisbane online media identities to sample the exquisite  Saké Cherry Blossom menu, which reflects the beauty and delicacy of spring time.

Upon arrival guests were greeted at the Saké deck bar, currently garlanded with imported live cherry blossom branches, to enjoy a Sakura Royale, a non-alcoholic mocktail featuring the edible cherry blossom itself blooming in the glass. After enjoying a drink underneath Saké’s iconic illuminated Sakura tree, guests were greeted by head chef Shinichi Meada himself to introduce the special seasonal ‘Shinichi’s Cherry Blossom’ menu.

The first amuses bouche to arrive, Sunomo was a delicate snow king crab, served with sweet tomato cosume and benito jelly, paired with the fragrant Cherry Elixer cocktail to drink. Next guests sampled the tastes and textures of the Cherry Blossom Bento Box, a selection of flavours made to share with fresh sashimi, light as air tempura, seasoned tofu and Shinichi’s own take on ‘steak and chips’, finely sliced rare Wagyu beef and potato rosti.

No meal at Saké is complete without the namesake itself, and this year Saké Restaurant and Bar has collaborated with Nakashima Brewing Company, a boutique brewery in the mountains of Gifu Japan, to brew a special Saké fit for sipping under the cherry blossom trees. This special ‘Junmai’ type Saké with a faint milky tinge, paired perfectly with next served Aji Fry of yellow tail mackerel and eggplant with smoky prawn mayonnaise, and Wagyu dumplings with spicy ponzu, bringing out the complexity of the Umami flavours. The cherry blossom itself is  featured as a versatile star of the menu, with the next dish of Yose Tofu, a smooth and silky un-pressed tofu garnished with a punch of salted cherry blossom to cleanse the palette.

This was followed by a succulent and tender dish of slow braised lamb neck, which Brisbane Head Chef Shinichi said although not very popular in Japan, he loves cooking with Australian lamb.

To sweetly end the evening, the guests were treated to a selection of finely crafted desserts in hues of pink blooms, including a Mont Blanc, a fluffy strawberry roll cake with macha and strawberry dust, a Cherry Blossom inspired strawberry and sour cream ice cream, and of course a modern variation of the traditional Japanese raw Azuki red bean cake.

Saké Restaurant & Bar Brisbane, is excited to invite the people of Brisbane to enjoy the seasonal tastes and celebration of The Cherry Blossom Festival this spring during September, and looks forward to bringing their love of Hanami to Australia.
