Christmas preparations have already started at Centara Grand at CentralWorld with our annual Fruit Mixing Ceremony!

While Christmas is still a few months away yet, now is the perfect time to start preparing the fruits that go into our festive stolen cake – a tradition we like to uphold here at Centara Grand at CentralWorld every year.
With this in mind, our annual Fruit Mixing Ceremony took place as normal in December on the ground floor of the hotel. In attendance was Chairman of the Board Suthikiati Chirathivat, together with Thirayuth Chirathivat, Chief Executive Officer, and other management team members who contributed to the ceremonial pouring over a mixture of fruits, nuts and spices.
The mixture will now infuse with the alcohol over the next few months before being used as the main ingredient in our Christmas cake. This results in a richer flavor, moister texture, and, of course, a welcome nip of booze!
You can look forward to an array of cakes, like Italian Panettone, English Fruitcake and Stollen, which will be available to buy from Zing Bakery in December 2020.

To celebrate its 24th Anniversary this month, Pathumwan Princess Hotel is launching a new initiative designed to help the less fortunate in Bangkok, especially disadvantaged children. “Cooking for Friends” aims to take advantage of the renowned culinary skills and facilities at the hotel to provide much-needed meals for those in most need.
The first event took place on Friday 11th September when 200 breakfast meals were cooked and donated to the Bangkok School for the Blind in Bangkok’s Ratchathewi District.
The school was originally founded by Miss Genevieve Colfield, a blind American lady in 1939 as the "School for the Blind", and in 1960 it was classified by the Thai government as a private charity school. In 1977 it changed its name to "Bangkok School for the Blind” under the Royal Patronage of H.M. the Queen. The School does superb work providing general education for those with impaired eyesight at the early childhood level, as well as supporting students in secondary education, and the hotel was delighted to be able to support this very worthy charity.
Pictured at Bangkok School for the Blind on Friday were (left to right) Mr. Sutat Chankrajang, Junior Assistant Security Manager, Ms. Nitchamon Sornchai, Restaurant Supervisor Terrazza Italian Restaurant, General Manager Mr. Stefan Heintze, Mr. Bundit Pudyen, School Director of The Bangkok School for the Blind, Ms. Chatchalai Phokan, the hotel’s Public Relations and Marketing Manager and Mr. Lanka Fernando, Director of Food & Beverage.
