Raclette Cheese and Sipsmith Gin Tricycle’s

Raclette cheese! Our brand new tricycle just in time for Christmas, warming the core of all those that indulge in the gooey stringy cheese.

What is Raclette you may ask? Well it is considered the pinnacle of Swiss cuisine alongside fondue. A half moon of cheese held under a heater until it is so well melted that the surface of the cheese bubbles. The melted cheesy elixir is then scrapped all the way down and lands perfectly on a bed of baby potatoes. Served with red pepper, rocket, cornichons and pickled onions. Tickled the taste buds yet?

Swiss Raclette cheese is said to have originated in the Alpine regions, where farmers had left cheese on rocks near a fire. When the cheese melted onto the rocks they scrapped it off and thought it the taste was incomparable to anything else. As the legend goes, Raclette cheese became well known as the best melting cheese on offer. With it becoming famous for providing a filling meal, which provided great energy to the farmers during their long days and nights on the hills.

So why not follow in the farmers footsteps with a finely prepared meal for your Christmas party or any sort of upcoming event? The cheese compliments a whole variety of different situations from a lighter evening meal to an additional extra later into an event. No matter the event your guests will leave with nothing less than a beaming smile after tasting our Raclette, we wholesomely guarantee.

But what goes perfectly with Raclette, well Sipsmith gin and tonic’s of course!

I don’t think many people would disagree with me that a good old fashioned G+T is a great British beverage, that on a warm summers evening is unrivaled. But realistically a great gin and tonic can be and should be enjoyed throughout the year no mater the weather. Sipsmith guarantees amazing gin every signal time. Created in their famous and unique copper distilleries, we designed our tricycle in their style and it has over the last year become our flagship tricycle.

Served with Fever Tree tonic water in a Sipsmith branded glass, the tricycle and the drink that it serves radiates elegance of the highest order. Garnished with fresh lemon and limes to top off perfection.

It’s not too late to hire it for Christmas!

Lights Camera Action!

It has been all go here at Ideas Box, Christmas event planning is well underway! With an extremely busy October we’ve hardly had time to catch a breath, but having extremely happy clients is the most important thing to us!

But we have had a little time for some filming of our tricycles. Our website is currently in the process of being updated and we thought videos would be a great visual addition. However before we got around to that we had a very interesting job with the BBC.

It was for two of our tricycles to appear in the upcoming series of The Apprentice no less. So we took our stripy and spotty tricycles down to Brighton to assist the candidates selling sweets to customers. The episode which aired a few weeks back saw Oliver get fired after failing to lead his team to victory in the task.

Although he did have some highlight moments with our tricycle. Most notably riding it through Brighton and almost crashing into bollards after going down a one way street! But sadly Oliver failed to cycle his team to glory and his efforts on the tricycle went down in vain.

For Ideas Box on a personal note the tricycles looked stunning with their Brighton beach backdrop and they were very well responded to in the episode. Along with Lord Sugar ridiculing Oliver over his tricycle related activities.

We were even kindly invited to the filming of The Apprentice after show ‘You’re Fired’. Four of us made the trip up to the studios to be some of the first people to see the episode! From all of us at Ideas Box we want to thank the BBC for the invitation and we were delighted to have the tricycles on the show and we look forward to working with them again!

A couple of weeks ago we hired an up and coming video company to come to our unit and create short clips of our tricycles in action. We really wanted to portray to our clients what they could expect. The filming was a great success and we have five very exiting shorts to share with everyone, which are already available on our new Vimeo account!

With more filming hopefully taking place in the new year, we cant wait for all 22 of our tricycles to receive the Hollywood effect!
