Interview with the director of the KARLSBAD GRANDE MADONNA hotel about the famous director’s cake, which he allegedly bakes himself

Share

Who believes or doesn’t believe it? We’ll try to ask him straight away and see his reaction.

Petra Jungmanová (Marketing manager)

Mr. Director, every year you go in person with a festive big New Year’s cake to the hall of the restaurant, only wit the light of sparklers on the cake. All promotional materials say that you bake it yourself. Can you tell me if it’s true?

Květoslav Navrátil (Hotel Director)

Yes, I have to admit that it is the truth, from the beginning to the very last decorated piece of cake, I have been doing it myself since becoming Hotel Director in 2004.

Petra Jungmanová (Marketing manager)

So the director’s cake is celebrating 16 years. Can you reveal your recipe?

Květoslav Navrátil (Hotel Director)

I’m sorry, but I really can’t do that. I make the cake according to an old family recipe and preserve certain rituals in its creation, so that it has its power and the charm of an exceptional magical night of the last day of the old year, while welcoming new hopeful expectations and sweetly good first minutes of the new one.

The only thing I can tell is that the preparation and the first breaking of eggs must begin exactly on a given day and at a specific time, but I will not reveal what day it is or what time I start, strictly alone, without the help of other confectioners.

Petra Jungmanová (Marketing manager)

What will it look like this year in an exceptional year 2020? Will you bake the director’s cake or will be exceptionally without?

Květoslav Navrátil (Hotel Director)

New Year’s Eve will be held this year under different conditions and will be completely different than what we are used to every year, yet I will bake New Year’s Eve cake again like every year. By no means do we break the tradition and guests can fully rely on the tradition and guarantee of our complete services at the KARLSBAD GRANDE MADONNA hotel.

Petra Jungmanová (Marketing manager)

Thank you very much for your time and I wish this year’s cake a success and a great taste for all the guests.
