为庆祝圣诞节，新葡京酒店正式揭开节日礼品屋的神秘面纱，旨在庆祝传统的欧洲圣诞节。位于酒店大堂中心的礼品屋满满放置了由酒店西饼行政主厨村中德仁（Norihito Muranaka）与面包烘焙主厨Yusuf Cekirge手工製作的节日经典礼品，其中包括圣诞果子面包、圣诞蛋糕、梅子布丁、圣诞糖霜曲奇等。在揭幕仪式上，Yusuf师傅还展示了澳门最大的葡式国王蛋糕，这款蛋糕重逾10公斤，直径近1米，是葡萄牙最受欢迎的圣诞节蛋糕。
In celebration of Christmas, Grand Lisboa Hotel officially unveiled a very special holiday Hamper House designed to honour the traditions of a European Christmas. Set in the heart of the hotel lobby, the Hamper House is filled with all of the holiday classics of Christmas stollen, log cakes, plum pudding, Christmas icing cookies and more – all delicately handcrafted by Executive Pastry Chef Norihito Muranaka and Head Baker Yusuf Cekirge. At the unveiling, Chef Yusuf also presented Macau’s largest Bolo Rei – weighing 10kg and nearly 1 metre in diameter – to celebrate Portugal’s most popular festive Christmas cake.
All of the luxurious festive hampers on offer include freshly baked Bolo Rei and an array of beautifully handmade creations from the talented culinary team. Grand Lisboa is also making it even easier for guests to dine at home this year with new, cleverly designed hampers that take the weight off carrying roasted turkey and ham. Or, for those who wish to venture out and celebrate at The Kitchen or Casa Don Alfonso, each restaurant is offering special Christmas and New Year Eve dinner menus.
Bolo Rei or “King’s Cake”, is a traditional Portuguese pastry enjoyed on the Day of Kings or Epiphany. This holiday celebrates the tale of the Three Kings who visited baby Jesus and brought gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense. The colourful Bolo Rei symbolises the three gifts from the kings. The golden, glazed crust represents the gold. The candied fruit is the myrrh, and the sweet, fragrant aroma is the frankincense.
Chef Yusuf and his team created Macau’s largest Bolo Rei by strictly adhering to the traditional Portuguese recipe in which the fruit is soaked in rum for one month and no additives are used at all. The pastry chefs poured more than 6,000 grams of flour into making the dough and placed over 200 pieces of candied fruit on top of the king’s cake. Remarkably, all of this was completed within just 8 hours for the opening of the Hamper House. This is a true feat, as normally it would take at least one week to make a cake of that size!
The luxurious Grand Lisboa Festive Hampers are overflowing with exquisitely handcrafted seasonal gifts including Bolo Rei, Christmas stollen, colourful Christmas icing cookies, an assortment of chocolates, Panettone, a bottle of champagne and more. Each hamper is priced at MOP 2,388*, and is available for purchase at the Hamper House. Guests may also purchase an array of Christmas goodies, from Christmas fruit cakes made of cognac, apricot brandy, dark rum and port wine to classic plum pudding packed with the flavourful spices of winter and dried fruit.
Holiday Dining at Home
This year, Grand Lisboa is making it even easier for guests to celebrate at home with brand new, cleverly designed hampers. To take the weight off, each 23-pound Butter Ball Turkey or 15-pound boneless Gammon ham is packaged in hampers with wheels for guests to conveniently bring their dinners home. The roasted Butter Ball turkey comes with cranberry sauce, turkey giblet gravy and sautéed Brussels sprouts. The boneless Gammon ham is roasted and served with honey gravy and sautéed Brussels sprouts. The turkey and ham hampers are priced at MOP 1,688 and guest can enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne when purchasing the hamper. Orders are available from 27 November 2020 until 26 December 2020. A minimum of two working days is required for all orders and are available for collection at the Hamper House.
