It’s egg-cellent at Jumeirah Hotels.
The Faberge Big Egg Hunt kicks off on Tuesday 21st February (Shrove Tuesday) for 40 nights and 40 days across venues all over London. During the hunt, participants need to track down 200 eggs, many of which are hidden. Only those with egg-cellent detective skills will find them.
To give you a head start, we can reveal the location of two eggs; Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel and Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel. Both hotels will be housing eggs – one designed by cook, writer, and designer Sophie Conran and the other by set designer Rhea Thierstein. The aim of the hunt is to raise money for two charities, Elephant Family and Action 4 Children. To help the cause, both hotels have created egg-tra special Faberge egg inspired menus, with a donation from each dish going to charity.
The Rib Room at the Jumeriah Carlton Tower, which turned 50 last year, will be serving glazed lobster omelette thermidor, toasted brioche, fried duck egg, seared foie gras and one hour cooked hen’s egg with baby leeks and wild mushrooms. The hotel’s other restaurant Chinoiserie will offer Omelette Arnold Bennett, toasted crumpets with Loch Fyne smoked salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce and snow eggs with caramel sauce, pistachios and vanilla anglaise. That’s a lot of eggs for your money!
Just around the corner in the Lowndes Bar & Kitchen (previously reviewed on this blog) at Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, there will be Eggs Royal, LBK crepes filled with scrambled eggs and covered in hollandaise sauce with melted parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Sounds egg-traordinary!
You have until Sunday 1st April 2012 to catch the eggs on display.
