There are four things which come to mind as soon as we start speaking about Christmas; and they are Christmas trees, Christmas gifts, snow and Christmas dinner.
Well, in this post, I wanted to give you a small Christmas gift, one that the whole family can enjoy, and so I thought what better gift to give you than a special Christmas Turkey recipe. And immediately, I thought of Steigenberger Golf Resort, one of the best five-star hotels in El Gouna, and usually praised for their delicious cuisine.
I contacted their head Chef, Chef Nageh and asked him to share with us his recipe, and he accepted with pleasure.
I went to meet Chef Nageh at the hotel, and I was truly impressed. This decent proud upper Egyptian gentleman welcomed me with his catchy smile and insisted to take me for a tour around the kitchen, and it seems to me like I have walked into Santa’s little workshop. An army of cooks working hand and foot on the preparation of the Christmas decoration they plan to put up in the restaurant, tens of little gingerbread houses, little sugar Santas, and more … it was truly a joyful sight.
With all the Christmas spirit around the hotel, the image that would come to mind would be little kids running around in their winter coats, wearing their gloves, and putting on their earmuffs, but no … let me break it to you, guests were totally enjoying the amazing weather, some were splashing in the heated pool, and others were even SUNBATHING! Yes, you read it right, sunbathing in December. Well, if you know anything about our El Gouna, Red Sea Resort in Egypt, you would know that we are praised for our amazing and sunny weather all year round.
