Heel’s Kitchen 2018, the first ever female only culinary event held at Grand Hyatt Guangzhou from December 7-9, dazzled the epicureans of Guangzhou with spectacular culinary masterpieces created by amazing ladies.

Year 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Grand Hyatt Guangzhou. During the past ten years, we have seen a growing number of women among the leadership team. To celebrate this milestone, Grand Hyatt Guangzhou hosted eight female chefs from six cities with a collective seven Hyatt properties, plus one TV celebrity chef. The event series featured two dinners, three lunches, six cooking classes, three afternoon tea and one very unique chef battle on December 9, when two teams went head to head in an extraordinary culinary extravaganza.

The epic Chef Battle Dinner on December 9, featured Lily Liu from Park Hyatt Hangzhou, Smita Grosse from Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, Siriluck Lekkwan from Grand Hyatt Macau and Lucy Tang from Grand Hyatt Guangzhou, who battled the team composed of Jacqueline Qiu from YIGUO, Jane Luo from Grand Hyatt Shenzhen, Dana Lin from Park Hyatt Guangzhou and Elsa Lai from Hyatt Regency Hangzhou.  All guests became judges and voted for the team they liked. After four rounds of competition on starter, soup, main course and dessert, Team A led by Jacqueline won the challenge with a tantalizing display of molecular gastronomy!

It has always been in the Hyatt DNA to build a diverse and inclusive global Hyatt family where we care for people so they can be their best. Heel’s Kitchen is a reflection and extension of this global Hyatt direction.

The Langham, Shenzhen Presents “Love to Give” Christmas Charity Afternoon Tea

Christmas Charity Afternoon Tea

Mercury drops. Our pace turns cheerful and light. These are signs that another heart-warming Christmas is just around the corner. This year, Father Christmas once again will travel in his sleigh to locations with or without snow to turn children’s dreams into reality. Between 1 December and 27 December, Palm Court at The Langham, Shenzhen invites you to join the hotel to create Christmas surprises for 24 children with congenital heart diseases. While enjoying exquisite Christmas desserts, scented coffee and teas, and special Christmas drinks, you can also play a role in making the dreams of a child come true.

Christmas Charity Afternoon Tea

Melodic music, aromatic mulled wine, fresh green Christmas trees, and tender shadows cast by the warm afternoon sun are well-known features of Shenzhen’s afternoon tea spot, Palm Court. During Christmas, the hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef Francesco Mannino is ready to turn this location all the more special, making by hand a dazzling array of adorable and much-loved Christmas desserts in either classical, green and red variations. Such desserts include blackcurrant chestnut tartlet with “Rudolph antlers”, a lovely “Christmas tree” loaded with sweet tropical fruits on the top of a black forest cake, and a white chocolate “snowflake” fallen with sweet wishes, all of which carry special meanings for Christmas. In addition, Palm Court will provide special Christmas mulled wine and eggnog, as well as an array of carefully-selected Wedgwood teas, filling this Christmas with sweet happiness.

Langham Bear and Wish Card

In addition to savouring delicacies, Christmas is also a time to give warmth and love. Since its opening, The Langham, Shenzhen has been striving to provide attentive care in order to help underprivileged children grow up healthily. This season, the hotel will join hands with Shenzhen Handpicked Love Foundation again since last year in helping children with congenital heart diseases get their wishes. The 24 children come from disadvantaged areas in Hainan, Hunan, Guangxi and Guangdong provinces and they were given a chance to provide their desired present for this Christmas. With innocent hearts come simple wishes. It turned out that ordinary, useful gifts such as a new schoolbag, a new down coat, or just a doll or toy, are already enough to make these Christmas wishes come true. To grant them their wishes, you simply need to inform our staff of your participation and the hotel will share half of the cost with you. This seemingly small act can make a big difference in a child’s life.

Christmas is a very magical time of year that brings people both happiness and contentment. Let’s give and contribute. Join us in delivering kindness and promoting charity this holiday season.

Wyndham Grand Kids Puppy Activity

The second season of the Wyndham Grand Kids Activity was a howling success. With a theme of puppy dogs plus scrumptious food, games and competitions, the children who attended had a ‘pawesome’ time!

There was even a real live puppy to greet the children as they arrived!

Puppy balloons surrounded the outdoor garden of the lobby lounge and decorated the tables. To top it off, a stage was set up at the front with a huge ‘Discover the Cutie Doggy moment’ display.

Exciting objects and gifts could be found on every table, including pots of modelling clay in a range of bright colours for the children to play with. Wyndham Grand mugs were carefully wrapped as an additional gift for the adults at the event, although some of the children were so excited they unwrapped those as well!

One of the competitions was for the best clay model made during the afternoon, which almost all of the children (and some of the parents!) took part in.

The models showed off some very creative skills and great imagination. Puppies, chicks, ladybirds and snails were just a few of the creations displayed for the competition – it was very difficult for the judges to decide the winners!

The prizes were giant soft toy dogs, ready and waiting for a new home. They found their new homes with a green dinosaur, a multi-coloured hedgehog and a lime with a tiny hedgehog and carrot on top.

Even the food was puppy themed. Doggy-licious desserts – some in the shape of the most popular dog breed in China, the Shar Pei  – made a mouth-watering display.

Mini plant pots filled with sponge cake, crunchy flakes, fruit and chocolate, complete with a tiny spade; heart shaped chocolate truffles; all kinds of macaroons; puppy-shaped biscuits; mini waffle cones filled with fruit cream; chocolate, fruit and nut balls covered in purple chocolate; and frozen lime and pineapple-shaped desserts were a selection of the delights on offer.

The dessert display was completed by a pink chocolate fountain with marshmallows, jelly sweets and fruit skewers all ready to dip.

As for the main courses, every appetite was catered for. From finger sandwiches and BBQ chicken wings to kung bao chicken and sushi, an eclectic mix of Chinese and Western cuisines was on offer.

No kids’ activity would be complete without a ball pool, and the Wyndham Grand was no exception. Kids of all ages had a pawsitively fantastic time playing with the inflatables, balls and balloons.

The final competition was a ‘fetching’ game where the children had to find and retrieve small blue boxes. Each box contained a piece of paper with a number which could result in a prize – from small red puppies to giant 2m long soft, fluffy dogs all ready and waiting to be taken to their new home.

As usual the Wyndham Grand staff were ever present, helpful and involved with the event and the children.

Look out for the Third Season of the Wyndham Grand’s Kids Activity, coming early next year. An event definitely not to be missed!

Grand Halloween Tradition at the Wyndham

The Wyndham Grand, Futian, doesn’t do events by halves, and Halloween this year was no exception. The Grand Kitchen, the Wyndham’s buffet restaurant, was host to the Halloween Buffet Dinner. No word could be used to describe it other than ‘spectacular’.

As soon as the elevator doors opened on the third floor, you were greeted by Halloween decorations and spooky sounds. Cobwebs were draped over light fittings; staff were dressed in cloaks and witches hats, with the occasional addition of scars, vampire teeth or dripping blood; skeletons and skulls caught your eye in every direction.

The most remarkable aspect was the amount of effort that had obviously gone into the Halloween themed food. Even the bread was shaped like ghostly faces!

From 6pm to 9.30pm over 100 people came to spend Halloween eating sumptuous savouries and delectable desserts. Appetizers included a selection of Asian-style and Western-style salads, as well as ‘design-your-own’, sushi, sashimi and an array of imported seafood – the Grand Kitchen’s specialty.

Everything from New Zealand scallops to oysters from Iceland, Alaskan salmon to South American shrimp, was available for the guests’ delight.

At the opposite side of the restaurant, a wide variety of Asian and International dishes greeted guests.

Alongside the usual dishes such as beef brisket, braised noodles with seafood, fried sole fish with cream sauce, Chinese BBQ chicken and pork, and Guangdong-style soup, the food was accentuated by Halloween specials.

A ‘Terrorist Mummy’ of BBQ pork rib with sausage was the centrepiece, complete with ketchup blood, laid ready and waiting to feed hungry guests.

The pièce de résistance of the whole experience was – without a doubt – the desserts. This is where the Halloween theme really came alive – or undead! A human brain, a bleeding heart and a dismembered arm were proudly displayed, surrounded by tombstones, spiders and skulls.

Luckily they were filled with delightful flavours like chocolate cake with raspberry and cream filling, almond cake or Swiss roll. They looked so good people were almost afraid to eat them!

As well as these masterpieces there were over 30 different types of dessert, all designed and made by the bakery chef.

Eyeballs filled with chocolate truffle and nuts, honeycomb witch hat cupcakes, Halloween sugar cookies, sweet witch poisoned soup, 3D spider puffs, fruit tarts in mini white chocolate coffins and chocolate spiders were just a few of the petrifying puddings on offer.

The treats didn’t stop at food either. Free-flow soft drinks and beer were also included with the buffet, along with a complimentary glass of wine and exclusive Halloween mocktails.

Free face paint, stick on scars and wounds, hats and masks were provided for anyone who wanted to embrace their inner scariness.

To top off a spectacular evening, what Halloween celebration would be complete without a pumpkin carving competition!

Eight guests took their places in front of fresh pumpkins, ready and waiting for life to be carving into them. Two children joined in, although after a while it became clear that their parents were doing most of the work as the children decided to go elsewhere and play!

After intense concentration and hard work from the participants, the restaurant manager chose a winning pumpkin. All pumpkin carvers received a Wyndham Grand mug as a special gift and the winner also received an exclusive bottle of house wine. The decision was very difficult to make as a lot of thought and effort had gone into every Jack o’lantern.

This was the third consecutive year the Grand Kitchen has put on a special Halloween Buffet and Mask Party, ever since the Wyndham Grand opened in 2015. If you can’t wait until next October, the international seafood buffet is also available every day for lunch and dinner!

From Monday to Thursday the buffet is RMB268, and RMB318 between Friday and Sunday. All diners are also welcome to enjoy one complimentary glass of wine. Prices are subject to 10% service charge and 6% VAT.

With more than 300 hoteliers and industry professionals in attendance, a total number of 20 awards were announced during a gala dinner at the St. Regis Jing’An in Shanghai. The ceremony marked the first return to Shanghai since its debut event in 2014. The evening was as dazzling as one could expect from the exquisitely styled St. Regis Jing’An, featuring a formal presentation of the awards, a fine dining experience curated by Head Chef Ryan Liu and an evening of live entertainment.

One winner from each category was decided by the high-calibre jury of experts through a two-round judging process, which looked at a combination of facts presented in the applications, interviews, and testimonials. This specialist jury of renowned representatives from the sector included, Jenny Soo, Head of Workplace Experience APAC, Jones Lang LaSalle Property Consultants Pte, Julia Monk, Senior Vice President & Director of Hospitality Design, Hok, Leon Liang, Former Vice President, Alibaba-Fliggy, Dr Sacha Stöcklin, Managing Director, Ciecas and Dai Bin, President of China Tourism Academy, Director of National Tourism Data Center.

Taking home, the “Owner Representative Hotelier of the Year” Award for Greater China was Auric Li, Owner Representative at Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai. With a Hotel & Tourism Master’s Degree, Auric’s hospitality career started in Shenzhen in the early 1990s when Shenzhen was only beginning to develop. He spent a decade learning every facet of front-of-house management. His background and successful operations experience made Auric a natural choice as the Owners’ Representative when he joined Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai in 2013. He was closely involved in every phase of the renovation of the original Nanhai Hotel as a separate wing of Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai.

Although she was not present, University student Maria Trishina was presented with the Rising Star Award this year, which celebrates and supports the next generation of hoteliers.

The newly launched brand builds upon its history of recognition and dedication to hoteliers and the hospitality industry, but also opens doors to the future.

Co-Founder, Benoit Thebaut shared a passionate statement about the new brand “To all of you sitting in the room tonight, you are a star and the ‘Stelliers’ is your recognition.”

The awards have grown in prominence and scope over the years, both in the number of applications received and also in the level of support from the industry, so much so that the platform is expanding once again.

After 15 exciting and exhilarating days riding through 68 cities across mainland China and Hong Kong, Ride for Hope 3 has finally reached its final destination. A closing ceremony was held at Pudong Shangri-La Hotel, East Shanghai to celebrate the riders’ safe and successful journeys and to present the cheque to the beneficiary – China’s Ai You Foundation. Through the generous support of all partners and participants, sponsors and media, 5,689,029.49 CNY was raised. This money will go to help at least 150 orphaned and financially disadvantaged children with developmental dislocation diseases.

Ride for Hope 3 is a community outreach project organised by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts to help raise more awareness and funds for children with hip disabilities under the Ai You Foundation’s Morning Star Project. The logistics and preparation for the event took several months of work and involved over 1,000 staff from 30 Shangri-La hotels to colleagues from its regional and corporate offices in the planning. Collectively 32 core riders, over 5,000 local riders participated in the ride and clocked 5,000 kilometres across 68 cities along four different routes.

“Shangri-La has always been committed to finding ways to help improve the lives of people in our community,” said Oliver Bonke, Shangri-La’s President and Chief Operating Officer who took part in the last two-day journey from Hangzhou to Shanghai.  

Ride for Hope 3 is truly an enterprise-wide community project. I am very proud of the strong team spirit and collaborative efforts of all parties involved. This project has succeeded in bringing many people together in a very memorable and meaningful way.  What we have collectively achieved today will made a huge difference in the lives of these children.”

“We are very pleased with our successful partnership with Shangri-La. The donations from Ride for Hope 3 will enable our orphaned children and children with degenerative diseases to receive effective treatments to lead normal lives,” said Zhenzhen Luo, assistant secretary general of the Ai You Foundation. “The ‘mobile’ charity drive is a unique way to raise more awareness and engage consumers to support the Ai You Morning Star Project.  We appreciate the innovative way of using bike riding to reach out to the public to help improve the lives of these children. It is heart-warming to see the close partnership with companies and the public to solve social problems together.”
