The Goring’s Egg joins The Big Egg Hunt
Launched this week, ‘The Big Egg Hunt’ presented by Fabergé, is sure to be one of the most eggsceptionally exciting London campaigns of 2012. A plan hatched by the Elephant Family and Action for Children, the record-breaking egg hunt takes place across Central London and includes over 200 gorgeous and uniquely crafted Eggs.
With eggs dressed by leading artists, architects, jewellers and designers- everyone from the Chapman brothers to Giles Deacon, Zandra Rhodes to Nicky Haslam and Marc Quinn to Russian jewellers Fabergé- The Goring naturally had to be part of the eggtastic phenomenon- set to make a new Guinness World Record.
Aptly named ‘Baaaaa-bara’ The Goring’s egg was inspired by the fact the hotel has been littered with sheep for the last 40 years of its 101 year history! These footstools are in the bedrooms as well as the main Bar and Lounge. All the staff wear ties which feature The Goring Sheep. Guests complain bitterly if there is a sheep missing! Many famous fans have been given sheep as Christmas presents, wedding presents and Jubilee presents. They have white wool, black faces and black feet and legs and are friendly not menacing (unlike many real sheep). The Goring Sheep are rather English and a little eccentric – just like The Goring itself.
Plus ‘Baaaaa-bara’ could be yours, by bidding for her in the Big Egg Auction in partnership with Sotheby’s.
It doesn’t stop there: for 40 days and 40 nights The Goring will also feature its very own interpretation of Eggs Fabergé created by talented Head Chef Derek Quelch. Touted as the world’s most eggsclusive dish, The Goring’s ‘Eggs Fabergé’ is a mouth-watering combination of smoked salmon & Burford Brown scrambled egg, lobster ragout, lobster sauce, poached quail egg & Sevruga caviar, available at The Dining Room until Easter Sunday.
With 12 Zone Maps to Hunt through, ‘Baaaaa-bara’ could be everywhere and anywhere so summon your diligent detective within and get spotting to help support two eggshell-ent causes…
