Winter is here! Pirin is already wearing her winter clothes, Plato has had some snow for a few weeks now and more is falling as I type this! Bansko has been going through a few changes this summer. The roads are getting finished off with new tarmac being thrown down like confetti at a wedding. Most of the caravans and temporary shops on Pirin street have been ripped down and are now being replaced with beautiful new buildings. New bars and restaurants will be popping up all over the place in the next few weeks.
Here at the Avalon, things are moving on. I’ve finished redecorating of the lobby bar and restaurant which are looking really cool. Loads of background stuff has been going on, we are probably the most health and hygiene compliant hotel in Bansko right now so I’m feeling proud! It looks like it is going to be a snowy winter so I’m extra smug as I have fitted gutter heaters on the roof so no more climbing up there with an ice axe and shovel 🙂 !!!
After the huge success of Christmas dinner last year I’ve decided to make it an annual affair. Dylan and the Team loved it as well as our guests! The plan this year is for a 3pm start so everyone can have a bit of a Christmas day ski. I’ll be serving the menu below, with drinks included for 65 leva a head and 40 leva for children over 7. Children under 7 will eat for free!
A Medley of Starters:-
Smoked salmon, chicken liver pate and Tomato basil soup. Sourdough bread.
Traditional Christmas :-
Turkey. Sprouts and Chestnuts. Roasted parsnips and Potatoes. Caramalised Carrots with honey and Cumin. Sausages wrapped in Bacon. Cranberry sauce. The works!
Christmas pudding with home made brandy butter or vanilla ice cream.
Drinks will be included in the price, a find selection of Bulgarian red whites and bubbles and a cheeky little dessert number!
