Hotel's Pastry Team moves into Property Development

The InterContinental Wellington's chefs will be adding to Wellington's property boom this festive season as they create Christmas treats for the hotel's guests and visitors.

In the hotel's lobby there will be a sumptuous range of goodies in the InterContinental's own Christmas Shop, where visitors will find yuletide favourites such as stollen, a centuries-old traditional German bread rich with eggs milk and butter but usually only slightly sweet.

The most famous Christmas stollen come from Dresden, Germany, but chefs at the InterContinental Wellington will be making their own, along with other home-made temptations such as duck liver pate, pork and cranberry sausages, duck and porcini rillette, and many more festive treats.

The Intercontinental Wellington's Pastry Team has also gone into the property development business, creating their very own ginger bread houses for the lobby's Christmas Shop.

Other treats available include a selection of handmade biscuits, ginger bread Christmas trees, ginger bread Santas, Christmas mince pies, and of course Christmas plum pudding with brandy sauce

Beyond the food, the InterContinental Wellington's Christmas will benefit the Wellington community.

The lobby will be home to a Christmas tree which guests and visitors can decorate with angels declaring Christmas wishes to loved ones. Gold coins donated for the angels will help the Salvation Army to bring some extra Christmas cheer to those who need it most.
