Their journey to the luminous city of Athens was perfectly crafted; the final touch was given by a private press event that was held in their honor. Greek journalists and local food & lifestyle bloggers were invited to meet the renowned pastry chefs in person and savor their signature gateaux de voyage.

Each and every one of the chefs created their favorite dessert and gladly presented it, not only to our top hotel pastry team but to our exclusive guests as well. Desserts covered in delightful chocolate and caramel flavors or filled with forest fruits, overflowed the GB Corner, Gifts & Flavors with delicate aromas. The chefs were even more than happy to welcome walk-in guests and personally assist them with their choices, while enjoying this engaging feast to exquisite tastes!

It was a memorable event that broadened our culinary horizons, with simple combinations that created exquisite outcomes. An event held in the heart of Athens, at Hotel Grande Bretagne, where classic beauty and taste still remain as values, but are amplified by a modern way of thinking, with an aim to create exquisite new experiences and tastes for the guests.
