This year, Sainsbury’s magazine turns 25 years young, and we celebrated with a fabulous party at Moët-Hennessy with our foodie friends and contributors.

Guests included the magazine team past and present, and our wonderful contributors from the world of food. Melissa Hemsley, Chetna Makan, Sabrina Ghayour, Eric Lanlard and many more fantastic writers and chefs that help us put together Sainsbury’s magazine tucked into canapés and sipped Veuve Clicquot Champagne and Belvedere Vodka Espresso Martinis throughout the evening in London.

Of course, no birthday party is complete without a cake, so our food assistant Ailsa Brown created a giant ‘25’ version of our April cover recipe – the epic Funfetti celebration cake devised by managing food editor Tamsin Burnett-Hall. It was so good, every piece went!

Speaking about the party, editor-in-chief Helena Lang says: ‘Celebrating our birthday was a bit like putting together one of our great triple-tested recipes. There was a lot of preparation: collating the VIP guest list, organising the flowers and music, baking and decorating the very special Funfetti cake, and then mixing it all together on the night.

‘It was so great to see all our favourite people from the food world in one beautiful room at Moët-Hennessy HQ and toasting our success with delicious Veuve Clicquot Champagne and the totally Instagrammable Belvedere Vodka Espresso Martinis.

Sainsbury’s magazine is still such an important part of cookery-loving customers’ lives and producing great recipes is what we do best. Long may that continue!’
