Yelpfest: The Yelpies @ Långholmen

Posted by Agnes Lindberg


Sunday August 30th was the day when the Yelpers of Stockholm finally got together to celebrate Yelp's first 10 years. We met at Riddarholmen where a boat, Storholmen, waited to take us over the water to Långholmen. When reaching land two officers waited and told us that we've been taken as prisoners and led us up to the prison in a strict line. They fed us bread and "water" - actually Gin & Tonic and the passionate warden told us all about the history. When released the party started and the Yelp flag was raised. Långholmen showed us their specialties, there was white and red wine, Yelp cupcakes from Cupcake Sthlm and our own Famous Grouse bar bike, did I mention "The Famous Yelp"? During the party Open Sesame entartained the guests, there was a Yelp quiz and, together with Photobox, a display of Yelper's pics from Stockholm where memories could be shared. Like all great parties it felt to short but with a wonderful feeling of what we will accomplish next 10 years we released the balloons up in the air and hauled the flag.

Read the reviews and check out the photos and especielly these photos - this was surely a day to remember!

Yelp's Winter Warmer @ Red Cacao

Posted by Chloe

Red Cacao

Yelp Elite, Bridie W, took the words out of my mouth so I'll let her tell you what went down one cool winter's eve as we learnt the art of chocolate and ceramics in Stirling at Red Cacao cafe...

All the key chocolate components were laid out for people to experience the tactile pleasures of chocolate in its raw form. Marcus gave an introduction and showed us a brief video of how chocolate is made, from bean to bar.  His passion for chocolate is obvious and it really shines through in his products. We immediately were given a series of different single origin chocolates.  I love dark chocolate, so was impressed with the sweet creaminess that came through even in relatively dark samples. The tasting plates that were put on our table were stunning.  Colourful macarons, chunks of chocolate, praline, choc coated almonds, salted caramel tarts, lemon meringue pie and shards of chocolate adorned the platters 

Pair this with sharpies and an intense coffee mug decorating session led by the talented Tracy Chaplin from Gretel Girl and you have a glowingly hot Yelp Elite Event!

Read the reviews and check out the photos from the event here.

Big thanks to our sponsors for taking the time to share their talents:

The view over the whole city is freakin' georgeous from the "Turm" at Wienerberg. What better place to try some Argentinian wines from Mendoza?
