RETRO CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION AT DORSETT KL


Vibrant shades of red, orange, green, pink, purple and blue sets the Christmas tree at the lobby of Dorsett Kuala Lumpur lobby apart this year. General Manager Adele Ang waved a ‘magic wand’ to officiate the lighting up ceremony. 
The hotel also invited a group of refugee Myanmarese children from from the Shalom Education Center to perform Christmas carolling before guests were ushered to Checkers Café for dinner. 
In line with the Dorsett group’s “Stay Vibrant” global brand proposition, a green Instagrammable wall beckons selfie enthusiasts to strike a pose. After pre-dinner drinks and live entertainment by resident band, DMJ Trio, guests proceeded to the lobby for the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.


The culinary team left no stones unturned in their quest to impress, showcasing a kaleidoscope of Yuletide specialities. Colourful and dainty portions of appetisers such as Pate with Peach and Mini Sliders jostle for attention amidst international Cheese Platter and Seafood on Ice.
 
Pasta cooked a la minute and the carvery counter feturing Whole Roasted Turkey with Giblet Gravy, Cranberry Sauce, Chestnut Stuffing, and Salt Baked Salmon with Mustard Dill Cream Sauce garnered long queues that evening.
 
If you’re planning to reserve a seat for the upcoming Christmas Eve Buffet Dinner (RM118nett per person), the extravagant menu includes grilled meat from the live Barbeque station in addition to a plethora of hot dishes: Beef Goulash, Lamb Navarin, Grilled Fish with Lemon Butter Sauce, Jamaican Jerk Chicken and Tomato Seafood Ragout.
 

Over at the sweet wonderland of dessert, Gingerbread in different shapes and sizes beckoned invitingly. Luscious temptations such as Chocolate Yule Log, Christmas Cookies, Macarons, Berry Trifle, Cheesecake and Stollen were laid out too.
 
 
Checkers Café will also serve an equally lavish New Year’s Eve Buffet Dinner (RM118nett per person) from 7 pm onwards on 31 December. Guests may proceed to Dorsett Residences Bukit Bintang at the hotel’s annexe, to catch the fireworks at the rooftop pool area on Level 30.
 
 
For festive takeaways, Christmas Treats are sold at Windows Lounge. Assorted Christmas Cookies, Almond Stollen Bread and other goodies are available while Roasted Tom Turkey and Roasted NZ Leg of Lamb can be reserved ahead of time.

A CHRISTMAS FAIRY TALE FEAST AT LE MERIDIEN PUTRAJAYA


Chicken Mushroom and Sweet Onion Pie. Norwegian Salmon with Apricot Gravlax. Whole Roasted Turkey with Bread Chestnut Stuffing. Christmas Mince Pie and Pudding. Gingerbread Men. Stollen. Chocolate Madeleines.
A fairy tale parade of festive food to leave year-end party revellers replete awaits at Le Meridien Putrajaya. The culinary team has gone and pulled out the stops, creating a mesmerising wonderland to please the eyes, tease the tastebuds and satisfy growling stomachs.
 
Get off to a fresh start with healthy and delicious salads such as Smoked Duck Cubes, Orange Segments and Pomegranate Salad, Microgreens with Roasted Garlic and Poached Pears, Mediterranean Couscous Salad, and Edamame with Seafood Salad. The multitude of textures and bright, tantalising flavours are light yet distinct; a splendid way to prime the palate for more substantial mains.
As with any buffet spread, it pays to be selective. Encased in buttery-rich pastry crust, the Chicken Mushroom and Sweet Onion Pie is delectable enough to warrant a second helping.
 
Tender with a hint of honey sweetness, the succulent slices of Norwegian Salmon with Apricot Gravlax hits the spot too. For finger-licking goodness, sample some Louisiana BBQ Short Ribs with Roast Vegetables.
 
Fans of ‘big bird’ will be ecstatic to know the Yuletide buffet won’t be complete without Whole Roasted Turkey with Bread Chestnut Stuffing. The meat is scrumptious; best savoured with giblet gravy, cranberry sauce and a hearty portion of herb-dusted bread chestnut stuffing.
Pastry Chef Hansraja Jayaraman and his team also step up to the plate with a cornucopia of cherished Christmas treats. One of the show-stealers is Poached Peach Buche De Noel – a luscious French yule log with a creamy filling of poached peach instead of chocolate ganache.
Another on-point favourite is Stollen – its bread-like texture studded with bits of dried fruit. Touched with spices and slightly nutty to taste, the Assorted Christmas Cookies make compelling nibbles to sweeten the celebratory meal.
 
 
 
Whimsical accents abound with little chocolate men adorning glasses of Chilled Berry Jellies, cute marzipan figurines perched atop a snow-white Gingered Christmas Fruit Cake, and mini gingerbread men flanking Gingerbread Houses.
 
 
A Christmas Mince Pie, Chocolate Madeleines, Mini Christmas Puddings, Macarons and an Eclair Tower complete the irresistible dessert parade.
The Christmas Eve dinner buffet is priced at RM168 nett per adult and RM84 nett per child. The Christmas Day brunch is priced at RM148 nett per adult and RM74 nett per child, while the Christmas Day buffet dinner is priced at RM138 nett per adult and RM69 nett per child.

For reservations, call LATEST RECIPE, tel: 03-8689 6888/6862. Address: Le Meridien Putrajaya, Lebuh IRC, IOI Resort City, Putrajaya, Sepang, Selangor.
