Come 17 December, Cinnamon Grand’s Courtyard lobby area at the ground level will no longer just be the ultra-chic lounge of relaxation. Instead, it will be turned in to a Christmas Market, wrapped up entirely in festive spirit, embracing each patron walking in with aromas of chestnuts roasting, the homely whiff of freshly baked bread and the mouth watering scent of roasts, stuffing and pie.
Debuting Cinnamon Grand’s own twist on the traditional Christmas festive fairs of the world, The Christmas Market will not only feature specialty food items from around the globe, but also creates a unique opportunity to revel in the season’s best.
On from 17 to 24 December from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., The Christmas Market has been conceptualised by Cinnamon Grand Executive Chef German born Dirk Heinen.
Taking on a charming bazaar like atmosphere, the Market will feature over 80 seasonal fares that are popular around the globe; especially from Germany, Italy and England. German specialties will include Bavarian bread dumplings, ‘Spatsle’ traditional German pasta, German bratwurst, pickled herring, demie glace and more; Italy will be represented by homemade pastas and pesto and from England will be the traditional mutton mince pie, turkey and ham pies among others.
With the objective being to make festive feasting at home, a more exciting and interesting one in a shorter time span, one will also find pre-made turkey stuffing (sage and onion, chipolata, dry fruit-nut), gravy and sauces (cranberry sauce, mint gravy, packed stilton cheese, tarragon jus, bread sauce, brandy butter and sauce), Christmas veggies (parsnips, Brussels sprouts, squash, pumpkin, imported mushrooms), a variety of freshly roasted nuts (hazelnut, walnut, chestnuts, peanuts in flavours such as chilli, curry, sugar, salty, caramel), a Christmas breads stand with over 10 varieties of breads from around Europe made in-house by the talented chefs (Italian Panettone, chocolate and vanilla British cottage bread and fruit cake, German Dresdner Christstollen, Christollen Confect, Weckmanner, Austrian Kletsenbrot, Scottish Dundee Cake, Bavarian rye bread and multi grain bread) a butcher shop of sorts presenting some 15 items inclusive of home-made hams, home smoked chicken, sausages and pate, duck leg, black puddings and more.
A separate counter for Christmas delights will also be set up here. Lebkuchenhersen or German hearts, sugar apples, mixed Christmas cookies, fruit preservatives, sticky puddings, and traditional Christmas puddings are some of the festive treats that will be available for purchase.
No longer will you be in a rush on Christmas Eve or when inviting guests over. At The Christmas Market you will find everything that the best host dreams of laying out on the table to enhance the seasonal dining experience or entertainment, at highly affordable prices. Along with the delicious array of yuletide treats available at the Goodie Hut located at the lobby, this year, Cinnamon Grand will feature some of the best yuletide specialties from around the world.
