Turkey Dinner

Featuring the favourite dishes of the German Royal Courts
" we were delighted with the six-course menu, especially composed and prepared for the occasion "

The Bailliage’s second event in 2018 was a “Royal Dinner” at the Hyatt Regency Ataköy Hotel. The “Royal” theme was chosen to showcase the favourite dishes of various German Royal Courts.

The evening began with a reception at which pass-around canapés were served with selected wines or Paulaner Weißbier.

Thereafter, we were delighted with the six-course menu, especially composed and prepared for the occasion by Executive Chef Lars Windfuhr and his team. Each course was paired with a variety of superb national and international wines carefully selected by Food and Beverage Manager Arslan Ҫolak.
