ENJOY THE FESTIVE SEASON AT HOTEL AMIGO IN THE HEART OF BRUSSELS

Hotel Amigo, just a stone’s throw from the sparkling Grand Place and Place Sainte-Catherine, which host a magical Christmas market every winter, is the place to be for anyone looking to celebrate the festive season in the Capital of Europe.

This year, Hotel Amigo’s festive programme kicks off on Saturday 22nd and 29th November with an unmissable cooking workshop. Marco Visinoni, the talented Executive Chef at Ristorante Bocconi, invites everyone with a passion for cuisine to join him in creating a festive menu, but not before visiting the Brussels morning market. This is the perfect opportunity to meet the best local producers, who will gladly share their passion for fresh local produce. Back at the hotel, the Chef will unveil his secrets to the participants, who will prepare an elegant and delicious menu together, which they can subsequently savour at the Chef’s table in the kitchen. This package, offered in a beautiful gift box, is perfect as a preparation for home-cooked festive meals with friends and family, or as a gift for budding chefs.
