Albert Combrink provides Live Music for the
Taj Hotels Christmas Eve Dinner, December 24th 2010.

Christmas Eve is one of the most magical of nights this festive season. Soft multicoloured light coming from Christmas trees decorated in streams of tinsel, orbs of silver and gold, candy canes, tiny snowmen and topped with stars and angels.

The spirit of Christmas is never felt as keenly as it is on Christmas Eve. It easily feels as if a Christmas miracle is waiting just around the corner and that the sound of sleigh bells can barely be made out in the distance. It’s a time for Christmas carols, Christmas cheer and, of course, Christmas dinner.

The Taj Cape Town is featuring a number of elegant events for the whole family this Christmas. For Christmas Eve, the Taj Cape Town is delighted to invite you to the Bombay Brasserie for a magical Christmas experience and an offering of some of the finest gourmet Indian cuisine.

We have prepared for you an evening of Christmas carols, complimentary champagne cocktails and a feast that will take you on a gastronomic journey to make you feel like the Maharajas of old. Our specially prepared five-course tasting menus will excite the senses, drawing into an exotic world of flavours.  Tandoori fish with bishops weed. Lamb curry scented with fennel and Cardamom. Simmered black lentils tempered with poppy seeds. A selection of Naan breads, baked mango yogurt and more. An elegant and glamorous journey one can enjoy amidst the luxurious decor and rich atmosphere that Bombay Brasserie is renowned for.

Before the chaos of Christmas day, before the family, the friends, the best wishes, the crackers and party hats, before the streamers and whistles, is Christmas Eve. Take the time to enjoy this most magical of evenings with an intimate and exclusive experience. Especially for couples who want to treat themselves to an elegant, more formal occasion.

The Taj Cape town provides luxury accommodation in Cape Town and has prepared a host of festive events to delight the senses this Christmas.
