NEWS| Jumeirah establishes new Chinese name

Jumeirah Group has unveiled its Chinese brand name - Zun Ya to convey the essence of the Jumeirah brand as well as a deep connection with Chinese culture.

In August 2008 the Jumeirah HanTang Xintiandi will open in Shanghai - the Jumeirah Group’s first hotel in China and flagship property in the Asia Pacific region.

Jumeirah’s Chinese name was unveiled in Xintiandi, the popular lifestyle and dining area in Shanghai, where the Jumeirah HanTang Xintiandi will open.

The Chinese name is not only phonetically similar to Jumeirah, but also captures the essence of the brand in its Chinese meaning.

CHEF BLOGS| Composition: Simple vs. Complex

From LAURENT GRAS, an Alain Ducasse protégé and former executive chef at the Fifth Floor in San Francisco, is now opening of his own restaurant in Chicago.

Composition of a dish starts with a vague idea and gets defined while thinking and working over it. The visual composition determines the simplicity or the complexity of the dish, and defines the overall effect . I like both approaches.

These are from the US primarily, my comments on each in Italics - editor

Trend Green Meetings, Not So 'Last Year!'
I don't really see this as a big trend here in India. According to me, COST is going to be the BIG theme this year..

Trend Lightning Speed!
Have to agree.

Maybe upmarket, luxury, yes. Everywhere else the food is more important than anything else. The amount of time participants spend discussing food is worrisome!

Trend Teambuilding is hot, hot, hot. From the traditional to culinary cook offs to white-water rafting, teambuilding activities as part of a meeting are more popular than ever.
The success of stand alone corporate retreat resorts tells me this is not a fad.
The bigger companies started the trend, now its become mandatory!

Trend Efficiency
Fewer meetings wi…
