RADISSON Blu Cebu recently hosted an epicurean banquet for members and friends of the Chaine Des Rotisseurs in celebration of the gastronomic society’s Christmas Ball Dec. 8, Friday. Aptly entitled “A Starry Evening at the Blu,” the annual gala presented its 120 guests with a celestially inspired seven-course meal exquisitely prepared by executive chef Roberto Kunitz and his team of 40 culinary experts.
Handsomely complemented by a collection of fine wines, all personally selected by general manager Laurent Boisdron, the ambrosial feast was skillfully served by a parade of 118 waiters under the seasoned guidance of director of food and beverage Ramon Makilan.
The gourmet evening further impressed guests with an elegant program directed by SM Hotels brand ambassador Nestor Jardin, and smoothly orchestrated by Radisson Blu Cebu’s director of events Ruby Nepomuceno.
Attended by members of Cebu’s business and social elite, the Chaine Des Rotisseurs Christmas Ball treated guests to performances by violinist Jobry Cimafranca, singer-songwriter Lara Maigue, pianist Jesper Mercado, and premier dance company Ballet Philippines, as they dined under an ethereal blanket of stars.
The world’s oldest international gastronomic society, the Chaine Des Rotisseurs is dedicated to fine cuisine and the promotion of gastronomic values through table art and excellence in hospitality. (PR)
