A spooky and fun-filled affair

- Honey Jarque Loop () - November 26, 2009 - 12:00am

Traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating is a mainstay of every Halloween celebration. Halloween is the time of the year when people create unique parties and think of wild things to dress up as.

While the merriment is centered on kids donning their masks and costumes, the adults, in recent years, have adopted this spooky tradition as they get together with friends, have their own fun and party, too.

The Chaine des Rotisseurs, gearing away from the usual by-monthly strictly formal affair, opted to hang lose as they celebrated Halloween at the newly refurbished Cebu Marriott Hotel. 

Adhering to the dress code, members came in either black or orange. Efficient attendants with sparkling wines and mojitos ushered guests into the black-covered foyer where general manager Roy Abraham, dressed as count Dracula, warmly welcomed them.

Dinner followed at the Grand Ballroom, which was entirely draped in yards upon yards of black material. A large number of serving staff moved around the two very long, elegantly decorated rectangle tables that had antique candelabras as centerpieces.

Like clock work each guest was served simultaneously.

The menu’s well-prepared dishes were remarkable in their presentation, each one full of imagination and delicate taste. They were well complemented by carefully selected wines.

Towards the end of the evening, Bailli Delegue Philippines Michel Lhuillier together with members of the board Teresin Mendezona, Al Evangelio, Nestor Alonso and David Sharpe presented several certificates of appreciation .

Proudly accepting well-deserved applause after applause were Roy Abraham, director of operations Dottie Viajar Wugler, executive chef Witold Leszek Szczechura, executive sous chef Gina Limot and their staff.

Praise was unanimous for the marvelous setting, flawless service and skillfully prepared and creatively presented meal.
