Continuing established tradition, a sizeable team from our hotel again took part in the family sports day arranged by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Telki. Thanks to the organizational efforts of Szabolcs Timku, we were again able to field competitors in all three sporting events.
We had a considerable number of entrants taking part in the table-tennis. The rounds were of an extremely high standard and exciting, and to our great delight it was through Ernő Varga, or as he is known to one and all, ‘Uncle Ernő, that our hotel produced the final winner. Many congratulations!
Our basketball team stood its ground heroically. The mixed team of men and women played extremely well together and in true sporting spirit, fighting to the end. In an unfortunate turn of events, however, we lost out in the final seconds with a basket from the winners comprising semi-professionals who regularly train together.
In football, our team started the day with a narrow 1-0 defeat, but after this they played convincingly to achieve an easy victory in the second group match, thus qualifying for the next round. This surpassed by far the performance of the team last year, and it was clear evidence of the improvement in quality of play. In the next game the poor state of the pitch and bad weather had a major impact on the standard of play and the mood of the team. Two members of our side suffered injuries on the slippery, hazardous pitch and were unable to continue, but with fair and sportsmanlike play they won the appreciation of the opponents, one result of which has been that the DHL Hungary team invited our hotel to a friendly match to be arranged at a later date.
All in all our members of staff enjoyed an excellent sports day during which they represented the reputation and spirit of our hotel in a befitting manner and with even more integrated teams.
Corinthia Hotel Budapest introduces new signature cake
Royal cake – Chocolate- and raspberry-based delicatessen re-invented by the culinary team of Corinthia Hotel Budapest for the 10th anniversary and inspired by Josephine Baker during her performance in the Orfeum in 1928.
This remarkable chocolate & raspberry cake, the key ingredients of which are Hungarian raspberry gelée, flour-free chocolate sponge and mousse, was inspired by the great French artiste Josephine Baker in 1928. The story is that our then chief confectioner presented her with a similar masterpiece, which immediately became her favourite. As part of celebrations marking the 10th anniversary of its reopening, Corinthia Hotel Budapest has recreated the hotel’s signature cake in an updated form, which we are confident you will enjoy just as much as the celebrated entertainer did 85 years ago.
The delicious scents of fine autumn fare waft from the Brasserie Restaurant. This Sunday’s theme is hunting, game and the outdoor life. Start with a warming and hearty wild boar or pheasant soup and then order a selection of game meat, venison, hare, deer, capon, mallard – served on a wooden platter. What better to go with this than a full bodied Bull’s Blood red wine from Eger or Szekszárd, brought to the table in a terracotta jug. The decoration continues this theme (guns, hunting horns, clothing) and the children can learn how to make a hunting hat.
