Hyderabad: Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre hosted their annual cake mixing and grape stomping brunch at the hotel. The event was planned to welcome the advent of Christmas and New Year and usher in a season of good tidings and happiness.
The grape stomping began with much enthusiasm, with all guests soaking their feet in the barrels, set against the magnificent outdoor space. The participants were observed singing songs and vigorously stomping the grapes, clearly having a good time.
Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre escorted guests to the mixing table which was beautifully arranged with black currant, golden apricot, rum-soaked figs, drunk raisins, dates, candied orange peel, candied ginger, dry cherries, etc. The invitees donned aprons, face masks, gloves, and caps, and armed themselves with bottles of liquor, ready to tackle the colourful mounds of dry fruits, nuts, and spices.
All of the guests enthusiastically joined the chef’s crew in mixing fruits and nuts with liquor and spirits in preparation for the Christmas dessert. They also ate a delicious brunch prepared by the chefs and danced to the beats of a DJ and a live band.
Speaking on the occasion, Manish Dayya, General Manager, Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre, said, “We have organised this grape stomping and cake mixing ceremony to usher in the festive season. This is just the beginning of the oncoming eventful festive season and celebrations at Novotel Hyderabad Convention Centre.
This is a great opportunity for us to bond with our guests and is always a pleasure to see our guests participating in the festivities and enjoying the sumptuous offerings and having a great time.”
