Junior chefs invited to make a mess

HILTON Brisbane is spreading holiday cheer with a myriad culinary opportunities for children and adults alike over the Easter break.

Children are encouraged to indulge their creative whims at the Junior Culinary School, mastering some high tea classics under the guidance of Vintaged chefs.

The colourful atmosphere at Brisbane's iconic Harry Seidler designed hotel, and the spacious chefs table located within Vintaged Bar + Grill is the perfect setting for budding young chefs to create mini-feasts.

Armed with expert tips and tricks, Vintaged chefs will lead the mini chefs on a deliciously messy food experience.

They will create classics including buttery scones, cupcakes, tartlets and finger sandwiches.

The small socialites unconcerned with cooking can delight in Vintaged's Children's High Tea.

This will offer assorted tasty creations from the kitchen as they relax in the $37 million revitalised surrounds.

Extending the Easter cheer, Hilton Brisbane is also hosting a special Easter High Tea in Vintaged Bar on Sunday, March 31.

This will allow guests to relax and indulge in Easter favourites including traditional hot cross buns and delectable chocolate eggs.

Hilton Brisbane general manager Martin Kendall said Easter celebrations and activities at Vintaged Bar + Grill would be relaxed, fun and memorable.

"From families to couples and individuals, the open dining experience at Vintaged and five-star luxury surrounds offers an exceptional experience and space to come together, relax and celebrate on Easter Sunday," Mr Kendall said.

"Hilton Brisbane is not only about catering to the tastes and needs of our clientele, but also the local Brisbane community by surpassing expectations and offering both a personal and social experience, where people are at ease to relax in great company and enjoy good food."

Those wishing to dine and stay the night can take advantage of the newly released Treasured Moments package.

This gives 20% off rooms and dining.

Rates start from only $167 per night.
