Kung Hei Fat Choi! Happy Chinese New Year! I wish all of you a prosperous year of the snake.
We are looking back to a successful start of the New Year with a fine feast at Horizon during the Chinese New Year holiday and a culinary journey to Myanmar at Balcony. The treats were prepared by our guest chefs from Traders Hotel Yangon and I hope some of you had the chance to meet them and savour the flavours of Myanmar. My personal highlight was the delicious seafood salad.
Here are two of the next culinary highlights, with many more to come!
National Steak Promotion at The Dining Room
A unique dining experience for all meat lovers until March 3 at The Dining Room has just started. Stop by and try some rare cuts of prime beef, rarely seen in Hong Kong.
Renowned Three Michelin Star Chef Michel Del Burgo
It is my pleasure to proudly present Chef Michel Del Burgo who will demonstrate his skills from March 12 to 17 at The Dining Room. Chef Michel has been trained by some of the best chefs of this century and he has travelled the whole world, leading to his expertise.

Director of Sports & Recreation
We will have the privilege to welcome M. Francois Bourgon, Cheese Master 2011 MOF (best craftsman in France), on January 23 at The Dining Room.
Francois got the passion for the cheese when he was five years old, going with his father to collect butter, cream and cheese where Comte cheese have been made since the 12th century. You might be asking yourself why we need a Cheese Master. The answer is very simple – to ensure that the long journey between the moment you milk the animal (cow, goat, sheep) and the cheese that is served on your table is complete.
Such a recognition is a lifelong dream for a French artisan. Francois will be with us for an eye-opener on the fabulous world of the cheeses and to help us to understand them better.
Degustation of special cheeses:
Three AOP Comte (France)
Two AOC Etivaz (Suisse)
Estoublon Olive Oil
Estoublon Olive Oil, an exceptional oil from the South of France will soon arrive at Marina Deli. I recommend to use this olive oil for seasoning your salads, on your fish and meat. Please do not use it for cooking. Come and try it in the Dining Room where we will be able to offer a few dishes with the different type of olive oils that the castle can offer.
At chateau d’Estoublon the olive are jewels, picked when fully ripe so the oil produced will have its trademark flavour of red fruits. It has a clean, golden colour with hints of green spiciness. Its aroma is full of ripe fruit with a smooth texture on the palate. Limited amounts are produced as most of the harvest is taken to make the AOC blend.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I wish all of you a prosperous year of the snake.
A big thank you to all of those who were at the New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner in the Grand Ballroom. It was an action-packed night full of fun and artistic entertainment hosted by MC Oliver de Molina. Indeed a night to remember with an exclusive eight-course menu created by our executive chef for this special night. We are looking forward to welcoming you to another extravagant event at the end of this year.
With every New Year, more culinary treats are waiting to be savoured.
Swiss Chalet at The Private Deck
By popular demand, our cosy little corner of Switzerland with its authentic recipes continues until the end of January. In addition to our signature dishes such as the cheese fondue, beef fondue and melted Racelette cheese we offer now some Swiss original desserts.
The Swiss Chalet is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday for dinner.
Korean favourites at The Deck
“Bibimbap” literally means “mixed rice” and it is one of Korea’s most famous dishes. A bowl of warm white rice topped with your personal choice of sautéed vegetables, chili pepper paste, a raw or fried egg and if desired, sliced meat.
This Korean speciality will be available every day with the lunch and dinner buffet throughout February.

Executive Assistant Manager – F&B
