The first Hyatt Greater China Pastry Masters Workshop was successfully held at the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou from June 7 to 10, 2018 in yet another demonstration of Hyatt’s commitment to culinary excellence and innovation. Over 40 pastry chefs from Hyatt hotels across Greater China captivated public imagination with their delectable creations, while collaborating to create ever more heavenly recipes.
“The key to Hyatt’s longstanding excellence in food and beverage is our commitment to talent development and sustaining efforts in fostering communication among our people,” said Stephen Ho, President, Greater China, Global Operations. “The Pastry Masters Workshop is another perfect platform for our culinary talents to collaborate, learn and share their inspirations and creativity through food, and allow us to provide the best of Hyatt to our guests.”
“In order to reinforce Hyatt’s culinary excellence and competitiveness, we have focused on three aspects this year – incorporating seasonal elements in our food and beverage, returning to the fundamentals, and introducing new ingredients across our hotels to improve their consistency and efficiency,” said Sebastian Wu, Hyatt’s Director of Food and Beverage. “The Pastry Masters Workshop was a demonstration of this focus and a great start for us to fulfill our ambitions for the future.”
The highlight of the Workshop was the Sweet Encounter Dessert Showcase in the afternoon of June 9, where all the pastry chefs showcased their extraordinary creations. The spread featured a smorgasbord of breads, ice cream, cakes, chocolates, cookies, candies and all kinds of desserts for different dining occasions including coffee breaks for events, high tea offerings, buffet selections, as well as wedding banquets. In addition, guests had the opportunity to observe the pastry masters up close and personal at work while participating in the culinary creative process. To top it off, the attendees were indulged with the Pastry Master Afternoon Tea creation and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.
A preview of the “Romance Collection – 2018/19 Garden Series”, an experiential wedding concept introduced by the Grand Hyatt brand for its hotels in the Asia Pacific, was also unveiled at the event. The Romance Collection, which is launching in China this year, offers spectacular nuptial celebrations the likes of which no one has ever seen.
