Mon Motors' Bristol Audi showroom embraced an Asian theme when it hosted a held a Bollywood-style event to celebrate the launch of the new A7 and A8.
Entitled ‘the Audi senses evening’, guests to the Cribbs Causeway dealership were treated to bhangra dance routines and Dhol drumming displays.
Indian cookery demonstrations and canapés made by executive chef Saravanan Nambirajan (The Mint Room, Bristol) and award-winning TV chef, author and blogger Hari Ghotra with the help of student chefs from City of Bristol College.
The dealership's support of a local Chefs’ Forum community, which bridges the gap between education and industry, has seen catering and hospitality students gain “valuable” work experience.
The ‘Audi senses’ theme was extended to a ‘sixth sense’ being Audi artificial intelligence, where Cliff Simmonds of Audi UK showcased the new models, talking guests through a whole range of safety systems designed to protect both the driver and other road users.
Bristol Audi’s head of business, Steve Smith, said: “Excellence in customer service and product are the Audi brand values and indeed our values at Bristol Audi.
"These are resonated through working with top chefs and front of house professionals via The Chefs Forum in staging regular customer events at our Bristol dealership.
“Showcasing top chefs and optimum levels of hospitality really shows our commitment to customers that we really believe in what we do.
"The feedback from guests as well as the chefs and students who took part was really positive and it was great to showcase the new A7 and A8 alongside the finest Indian culinary talent, music and dance.”
