This season’s thanksgiving celebrations kickstarted with the traditional cake mixing ceremony at The Westin Chennai, Velachery. The hotel carried on an age-old tradition of preparing Christmas confectionary by inviting its patrons to soak the exotic seasonal nuts and condiments in liquor.

The venue wore a festive look with a fashionable mixing table taking the centre stage — laden with cashew nuts, pistachios, raisins, dried cherries and walnuts. Joyous carols filled the hotel and waiters, in Santa’s hats and elves’ shoes, complemented the mood by passing around mouth-watering snacks.

The event began with The Westin’s bakery chef giving a demonstration of how to make age-old favourites like yule logs and minced pies, inviting the guests to become a part of the session by trying their hand at making one of their own.

At the mixing table, Director, Food & Beverage, Animesh Barat initiated the celebration by mixing the first batch of nuts with liquor with executive sous chef, Priya Roy.
