Christmas means a lot of different things for a lot of different people in the world. Christmas in Kolkata is specifically characterized by certain things that all Calcuttans have lived the past many, many years and even though things are changing over time, we still long to experience them even today.
Some of these wintery things for me have been hosting barbeques with family and friend, staying out late just to see the roads fade into loneliness, taking ample pictures of the street decorations, visiting Park Street and most importantly visiting local bakeries with my Mother and bringing back home some freshly baked Christmas treats for the family. This had been a tradition for a long time, but not anymore. While that saddens me quite often, especially during this time of the year, The Bakery at The Lalit Great Eastern changed that for me in the very recent past.
The Lalit Great Eastern and its Christmas Give Aways:
One fine evening when I was out doing my mundane chores, my phone rang and on picking it up I heard a voice tell me “Ma’am I am calling on behalf of The Lalit Great Eastern and I am very close to your place”. An instant smile spread across my face, the much awaited Christmas goodies from Great Eastern had arrived.
With a few more directions and a few more minutes on the clock Sukanta (The Smiley guy delivering the beautiful Christmas Hampers on behalf of the 5 star) reached my home, delivered the packet to my Mother and took a very cute selfie.
The first thing I saw when I reached home was this magnum red box of Christmas goodies safely placed on our coffee table. With my Christmas-y instincts setting in, with superlative speed, I plopped beside the Hamper and started to open it.
The mere sight of what was held inside forced a smile on my face. I was happy. I had by Christmas bakes and treats delivered to me, right before Christmas and that too such beautifully packed. Though I did miss visiting bakeries with my Mother, The Bakery at The Lalit Great Eastern brought the bakery to me in this red box.
The Sweet Contents:
The hamper contained a Satisfying loaf style Plum Cake, Muffins, Cookies and a beautiful loaf of bread. Everything in the box tasted so authentic, just the way it should. The best part of having these baked goods in your home is that your home instantly starts smelling all festive.
