Warm Waffle Wishes From Hilton Garden Inn
Hilton Garden Inn joins forces with Chef B in celebration of its first birthday in the UAE
DUBAI, UAE - This month, Hilton (NYSE: HLT) celebrates the first anniversary of its award winning, midscale brand - Hilton Garden Inn in the UAE. To commemorate this milestone, the brand has partnered with the country's youngest and most popular chef, Bader Najeeb - better known as Chef B - to create an exclusive range of Emirati-inspired toppings for its signature breakfast waffles.
Using local ingredients and those inspired by Emirati culture, Chef B has created three special edition recipes to mark the occasion: Arabic Coffee Meringues with Strawberries & Chocolate, Saffron Poached Pear Slices with Vanilla Ice Cream and Waffles Stuffed with Rosa Falooda and Vanilla Ice Cream.
The public can vote for the recipe they'd most like to try by capturing their favourite via the creator's snapchat page on Tuesday 18th October (@chef.bader). The most popular recipe will be available at a special Hilton Garden Inn waffle truck on Friday 21 October 2016 at Kite Beach, and served by Chef B. Continuing the birthday celebrations, all voters who 'like' or 'comment' on their favourite recipe on Chef B's Instagram page (@chef.b) will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a night's stay at any Hilton Garden Inn in the world.
"Since launching Hilton Garden Inn in market a year ago, we have offered thousands of visitors a mid-scale accommodation option, providing them with a great stay at even greater value," said Tal Shefer, regional head, Focused Service Brands, Hilton EMEA. It has been a pleasure to serve guests our freshly-made breakfast waffles at our three hotels in Dubai, and we're excited to be partnering with Chef B to create a special birthday recipe this year"'
Each Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Dubai will also serve Chef B's winning recipe, as selected by Instagram users, on the day of their UAE birthday:
Hilton Garden Inn Al Muraqabat - October 22nd
Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Al Mina - November 17th
Hilton Garden Inn Dubai Mall of the Emirates - December 24th
Chef B said, "Creating recipes using local ingredients is a true passion of mine, so it has been a real pleasure to develop three exclusive Emirati-inspired toppings for Hilton Garden Inn's signature breakfast waffles in celebration of the brand's first birthday in the UAE."
