20th November, 2019. As the festive season approaches, the staff & management of Green Park, like every year would be celebrating the traditional fruit mixing ceremony at the Hotel Lobby on the 20th of November 2019.
Every year, the fruit mixing ceremony is held across Hotels as a mark of the festive season’s beginning. The stirring ceremony is part of an age-old Christmas tradition of cake mixing and one of making wishes for the New Year. The ingredients of the festive fruit cake are mixed with wine and liquor in advance so that the ingredients can develop aroma and taste. Originally a family affair, it is for many years celebrated within organizations to spread camaraderie and goodwill.
Speaking on the history of cake mixing ceremony, it dates back to 17th century in Europe. The ceremony marked the arrival of the harvest season. During this time, lots of fruits and nuts were harvested and used in the making of the traditional plum cake. This was saved till the next harvest, with the hope that it would bring yet another fruitful year. The sugar content of the liquor and fruit juices help preserve the ingredients. Also, for the cold “Christmassy weather”, the plum cake is a perfect energy food.
We at the Green Park celebrate this day with our esteemed hotel guests, staff and special invitees from various walks of life, every year. This year we would have our guests join us for the event on the 20th November (Wednesday) at 4 pm. This year we curated the Theme as Avengers – Yours super Heroes and we got them to be a part of Cake Mixing ceremony and to mark the Festive Season ahead. It’s not your Christmas parade, this year welcome our GreenPark Staff dressed as your very own Superheroes as they bring in the Ingredients for mixing. Get into the Christmas spirit and our barman pours out Christmas libations in Avenger’s style.
The Chefs of Green Park Hotel under the leadership of their Senior Executive Chef V. S. Thangappan take pleasure in conducting the event and the entire team of employees & the guests staying at the Hotel would be participating in this ceremonious event.
Mr Sudip Sengupta, Vice president, Green Pak Hotels would inaugurate the event.
