A winter wonderland under one roof

CHRISTMAS dinner with the family is an important part of the holiday's celebrations for many people, and the food served in the celebratory meal varies greatly from country to country.

A standard Christmas meal includes Christmas puddings, mince pies, ham, potatoes, vegetables, sausages and gravy.

The Portman Ritz-Carlton Shanghai is getting into the festive dining spirit with its own traditional Christmas meal - with a few non-traditional elements. Guests can not only enjoy the possibly best hot chocolate in town but also several surprises and free-flowing drinks.

Located on Nanjing Road W., The Portman Ritz-Carlton Shanghai is an unforgettable luxury hotel where guests are located conveniently close to the best shopping area, cultural attractions and entertainment in a city bothrich in history and cosmopolitan delights.

Only 20 minutes' drive to Hongqiao International Airport and 40 minutes' drive to Pudong International Airport, The Portman Ritz-Carlton is a landmark destination for MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and events) customers and tourists.

The Portman Ritz-Carlton Shanghai is one of the best places in the town to celebrate Christmas Day with family and friends.

From December 1 until Christmas Day, hampers and turkey are available to add extra variety to your Christmas feast and unique gourmet gift ideas.

Gingerbread House in The Portman Ritz-Carlton is a popular place with several traditional Christmas cookies, gourmet spiced truffles, hot mulled wine, chocolate Santa Claus and many other traditional and not-so-traditional favorites.

Ritz-Carlton Christmas Hampers are brimming with gourmet seasonal delights, including ginger stollen, Christmas fruit pudding and spiced homemade truffles.

Priced at 1,890 yuan (US$284) to serve six to eight people and 2,190 yuan to serve 10 to 12 people, turkeys and all the trimmings can be ordered and paid before December 22 and picked up from December 22 to 25.

One of the most famous things in the hotel chain's history is the Teddy Bear Tea, a Christmas ritual celebrated at Ritz-Carlton hotels worldwide. Join Executive Sous Chef Leonard Cernko for this interesting event and see your kids have tons of fun with a life-size teddy bear. In the meantime, you can enjoy their traditional Christmas storytelling and Christmas carols.

All guests are welcomed and invited to donate their own teddy bear and toys to children in need to share love and care during the Christmas celebration.

On December 4, 11 and 18, people are invited to gather in the Lobby Lounge and enjoy an elegant Christmas High Tea, priced at 178 yuan per person - or 278 yuan for those wanting to enjoy extra Champagne.

There are two options for guests who want to have their Christmas Eve dinner at The Portman Ritz-Carlton Shanghai Hotel.

Guests can enjoy chef Roy Dibyendu's favorite Christmas dishes from around the world and some seafood surprises at Palladio and Tables for 648 yuan per person.

Or people can imagine they are enjoying Christmas Eve in Torino as Chef Gianluca Serafin, Palladio Italian Restaurant's Chef de Cuisine, treats diners to a spectacular six-course Italian Christmas Eve dinner priced at 998 yuan per person or 1,598 yuan per person with Fabrizio's expert wine pairings.

Both start at 6pm on December 24.
