The anticipated journey of the season has started, and
its destination is Christmas, an occasion for family reunions, festivities and
traditions. One of the liveliest traditions of the festive season is the mixing
of the ingredients of the Christmas cake. This is an age-old tradition followed
in Christian households, which over the years has been adopted by many hotels
and patisseries and observed with much fanfare.
the centre the Wildfire restaurant, was placed a large steel table covered with
a plastic sheet that contained a mélange of dry fruits, nuts and spices. Around 250 kilos of the fruit mix was used consisting of
raisins, glazed red cherries, orange peel, tutti-fruity, black currants, dates and
walnuts, cashew, almond flakes and all
spice powder. More than 75 liters of alcohol in different forms like whisky,
rum, vodka, beer and liqueur was used in the mixture. This whole bunch of nut
mix will give approx. 1000 pieces of plum cake at Christmas.

ceremony began with the distribution of aprons and plastic gloves for everyone
to wear. While some people chose to wear a toque, the traditional chef’s hat,
others decided to honour the festive mood of the occasion even without them. I
was there with my 9 year old daughter, who was very excited to attend this
ceremony. She wore the apron and the gloves, also the Hat. We mixed all the
nuts and other things together but as the liquor bottles started pouring in, my
daughter had to leave the table as the smell of the alcohol was really
intoxicating and unbearable for a child. But we kept on churning and mixing the
same nutty mixture in full and Hi spirits.
foreigner guests and whole F&B team including the F&B Director, Mr.
Indrashis Sinha and the Executive Chef Mr. Avanish Jain were present at the
had loads of chats with the yummiest stolen bread and plum cake with coffee
after the cake mixing ceremony was over.
Christmas is no fun without
traditional Christmas cake and making this cake is not a quick and easy step.
The age old ceremony of cake mixing starts before Christmas and is considered
to be Usher for Good Tiding and Happiness. Looking forward to a Merry Christmas
for all !!!
