Have you ever imagined stepping into a gingerbread house just like Hansel and Gretel? This year, you can celebrate the Christmas season by dining in a life-sized magical gingerbread house created by pastry chef Magdalena Abakumiec and her elves at Titanic Hotel Belfast.
Inspired by the history and heritage of German-born Gustav Wolff, one half of the shipbuilding founders of Harland & Wolff, the gingerbread house took four days to cook by hand. Standing 10 feet tall in the Wolff Grill, the house is made from 1,000 gingerbread bricks, with a whopping 10 kilograms of sweets and candy canes decorating the walls and 600 individual fibre optic lights illuminating the star effect ceiling.
General Manager of Titanic Hotel Belfast Adrian McNally said, “Since the fairy tale spectacle was completed we have been inundated with visitors keen to admire this wonderful creation which, to my knowledge, is the only gingerbread house of its kind in a hotel in Ireland this Christmas. We are in awe of the elves in the Wolff Grill who painstakingly built it to such exacting detail, and would encourage anyone visiting Belfast to come and see it for themselves.”
The enclosed dining space seats up to six guests and can be hired for private dining until Christmas at an additional £50. The Wolff Grill Christmas menu includes festive favourites including local turkey and ham or mouth-watering braised daube of beef. Dessert choices include traditional Christmas pudding, chocolate tart and sumptuous Black Forest gateau — and a bespoke gingerbread cocktail has been carefully created by the Titanic Hotel Belfast resident mixologist.
