I am not publishing a review of each workshop I give but this one has been different. We prepared this time a little lunch performance under the slogan MoodBoard Your Food.
But first I want to mention my students. Being surrounded by creatives from so many different fields has become the most grateful side effect of my teaching experience. If I needed a graphic designer, photographer, interior designer, food+event expert, handbag designer, personal coach, wedding planner, marketing master or headpiece designer, I’d just need to call up anybody from my last group. Not to mention all former students…
After working through some theory and strategic stuff in the morning, lunch was served to charge batteries. When it comes to express creativity, Elsa Yranzo has always been the lady to put the icing on the cake during the workshops. She presents food in a way you just have to love it. It’s always vegetarian, the visual feast is guaranteed and it’s really delicious. This time, she came up with the idea of moodboarding the lunch. You see, Elsa had attended one of my earlier workshops, creating a mood board which was all about defining her personal style, and she thought about translating that outcome into what we would have for lunch.
She converted all keywords she had been working on for the mood board in ingredients. These keywords were presented on golden apples since Elsa loves gold and a bit of glam.
Romantic was translated into a soft pink raspberry mousse topped with spicy ginger candy since she considers herself a warrior, too, and wanted to work on this contrast that defines her very well.
The main dish however was a mix of her interpretation and getting creative ourselves. The golden fig symbolized Elsa as a woman, strong and feminine, gold painted again because that’s her thing:). You’ll find it on top because that’s what she is aiming for being involved in a new professional project right now that sees its light soon (stay tuned, she soon comes up with a new site!!).
The wrap came empty and it was all about filling it ourselves and create our own ‘mood board’ at the end. A lot of most delicious toppings would help here.
Now let’s see some mood boards that were created in the afternoon! I have chosen these because they probably fit more to the blog’s style but all of them turned out really great!

To sum it up, just another very inspiring day! You can see more images on this board where I gather varies impressions of our workshops. G, x
