Everybody had a wonderful time tasting the varieties of dishes and sipping good wine while taking part in interesting activities specially planned for the evening.

“For the last 48 weeks people have been busy thinking about business, economy, strategies, sales targets and work, but also about kids in school, good and bad relationships, difficulties in life and how to overcome and solve challenges, wars, disasters and political uncertainty… in short… often year-round routine, stress and tension. It’s Christmas again and it’s time to loosen up a bit, I wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” said Mr. Arbenz, Director of Operations IHG® Hong Kong, Macau, Zhuhai & Huizhou and General Manager of Intercontinental Shenzhen, and he shared his own childhood Christmas story with everyone.

The Hotel also took the opportunity to launch the “Christmas season”. On December 24th and 25th, seven restaurants are going to offer luxurious Christmas food coming from France to Southeast Asia, from Brazil to Spain. Also, precious gifts will be prepared.

Santa Claus will travel around “the world” to celebrate Christmas with everyone. So, make a wish under the Christmas tree, drink with friends and relatives, and enjoy the relaxing and warm atmosphere.

Michelin-Star Cuisine Meets Spanish Flamenco at InterContinental Shenzhen

Food lovers of Shenzhen, take note. For two nights only from the 2nd to 3rd of November, the InterContinental Shenzhen plays host to Michelin-Star Chef, David Guzman. In what proves to be a unique dining experience, Guzman’s fusion of Spanish and Chinese cuisine will be complemented by a mesmerizing Flamenco performance. Shenzhen Party spoke with InterContinental Shenzhen to discover more about one of the city’s culinary events of the year.

Savor the culinary showcase from a Michelin star chef

It’s a cause for celebration when a Michelin-star chef graces us foodies with their presence in Shenzhen, and David Guzman Chinese-influenced interpretation of Spanish cuisine is certainly worth getting excited about.

At the age of just 26, Guzman became Executive Chef of the Michelin-starred Koldo Royo. Located on the beautiful island of Mallorca, Koldo Royo has gathered a reputation as one of the best spots to dine in all of Spain and food lovers from all over Europe travel to experience what the restaurant has to offer. It was at Koldo Royo that Guzman mastered his craft.

Over the years, Guzman has cultivated a clear and distinctive style that is truly his own. He soaks in everything around him and expresses it in his dishes. As the chef says himself, “You can learn a lot of skills at school, but the real creation is from life. What you see, what you eat, what you hear: everything can be a source of inspiration.”

It is this philosophy that has led Guzman to prepare a culinary showcase that is not to be missed. For Guzman, he wanted to combine the traditional elements of Spain and of China, and from them create something entirely new, fresh, and exciting.

He explored the Chinese traditions of Yin and Yang, and studied Wu Xing, the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Those five elements of Chinese culture have been expressed in his unique presentation of Spanish dishes. From water in the Scallop Ceviche on Sea Rocks, to fire with the Fire-Roasted Salmon, and metal in the gold and silver display of the Angus Beef.

The five-course meal of Spanish dishes takes diners on a journey through the Chinese culture of Wu Xing. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the live performance. Speaking of which…

Enjoy a gourmet feast paired with a stunning flamenco performance

Just as David Guzman has prepared a tour through the five elements through a five-star dining experience, two flamenco dancers have created five original dance choreographies based on Wu Xing. As the evening develops, the food and the dancing become as one as they tell the story of the five elements.

Relax in the elegant dining surroundings of Pipette

What better setting to host this coming together of food and dance than InterContinental Shenzhen’s Pipette French Restaurant. The fine dining restaurant is no stranger to Michelin-starred chefs and is the perfect location for David Guzman to showcase his latest creations.

Pipette means “wine straw” in French, and the establishment certainly lives up to its name. As well as a five-star service team, it also boasts an award-winning sommelier, who will be selecting the finest wines to pair with the courses from the 5,000 or so bottles in the restaurant’s collection.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a Michelin star experience like no other

Between the unique five-course meal from the Michelin-starred David Guzman, the quite simply stunning flamenco performance, and the class surroundings of Pipette, there really will be only one place for any lover of food to be on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd November.

With such a limited run and a high demand for tickets, it is recommended that any foodie that’s wants to be part of this special event to contact Pipette for a reservation at 0755-3399-3388.
