What’s your choice for the Christmas holidays? Buffet or gala dinner?

There is a current trend in many hotels to serve up a buffet to celebrate Christmas Eve and a Gala Dinner for New Years Eve

30 October 2017. Not so long ago, celebrations to mark Christmas Eve were exclusively events held in family homes; whereas a much wider range of options were available for New Years Eve celebrations. In more recent years, plenty of people have decided to mark both dates away from home, getting away to neutral destinations where nobody has to cook and harmony reigns supreme. Hotels are the most popular places, particularly those by the sea or in the mountains, meaning that guests can enrich their experience with activities for the whole family.

Christmas Eve - Plato solomillo

Due to this change plenty of establishments like Fuerte Marbella (Málaga) have decided to differentiate between the two celebrations and organise succulent buffet dinners for Christmas Eve and luxury gala dinners for New Years Eve. However, despite the different formats, all of the menus include exquisite products such as prawns, spider crab, scarlet shrimp, salmon and turkey when it comes to the buffet; and foie gras, scallops, langoustines, Galician veal and Moët & Chandon Imperial for the gala dinner. Delicacies such as these will also have a notable presence on the New Years menu at Fuerte Grazalema (Cádiz) where there will be no shortage of Iberian Pork products, cured duck and shrimps, among other tasty morsels.

Another feature that will put these events in a class of their own at Fuerte Marbella will be the entertainment. While Christmas Eve will feature performances of Christmas music and carols, and many guests will attend Midnight Mass at Marbella’s Encarnación Church after dinner; New Years Eve will feature modern live music a traditional bunch of grapes at midnight, fun party accessories and an open bar. Which do you prefer? Happy holidays!
