Christmas Lunch Party at La Table de Thierry



English by Sandra
Japanese by Chie Nakamura


 La Table de ThierryでのWAOのクリスマスランチパーティーは、とても和やかでアットホームな雰囲気の中、素敵なお食事を素敵な仲間と楽しむ素敵なパーティーになりました。


まずランチコースの前に、クリスマスについてのクイズ大会で盛り上がりました!今回のパーティーには、お子様も一緒に家族で参加して下さった方もいて、一人の男の子がクイズ大会で正解を連発し、見事チームを優勝に導くという予想外?の展開に!優勝記念にクリスマスキャロルも披露してくれました、「so cute!!」と誰もが目を細めて今日のラッキーボーイに拍手しました。

クイズでアイスブレイクしたテーブルの雰囲気は、子どもたちに負けないくらい生き生きとしたものになり、食事中も楽しい会話が続きました。でも、何といっても、かわいくておいしい9品の前菜プレートが登場した時は本当にときめきましたね(笑)メインのフランス産ローストチキンが出てきた時には、「う~ん♪」という声と幸せそうな顔でテーブルはいっぱいになりました。

最後のデザートは大人のスイーツと呼ぶのにふさわしい一皿で、食後のコーヒーを引き立たせてくれました:)

食事中にも、お楽しみが用意されていましたよ!Alexのマジックに目を輝かせて夢中になったのは子どもだけではありません。おいしい食事に、サプライズな楽しみを与えてくれたAlexに拍手!!




そして、フィナーレはお楽しみのプレゼント交換☆参加してくれた皆さんが、それぞれ持参してくださったアイディアいっぱいのプレゼントをお土産に、パーティーは幕を閉じました。

参加して下さった皆さん、La Tabel de Thierryの皆さん、今日は本当にありがとうございました。

今回参加できなかった方も、ぜひ一度La Table de Thierryでお食事をされてみてはいかがでしょうか。

 Christmas is a time to reconnect, to revitalize, and to rejoice!
At one of the world’s biggest festivities, how can we make Christmas in Japan merrier rather than just digging in Kentucky fried chicken and exchanging presents with our lover?
On December 23rd, We Are One International hosted a Christmas lunch at a French restaurant, La Table de Thierry, in Kyoto. We invited our members to celebrate this traditional festival altogether as a big family.


At 11:30am, attendants gradually arriving with their friends and family, each brought a present for the gift exchange. They were impressed by the stunning view of Kamogawa and Higashiyama from the 9th-floored restaurant and the sophisticated yet warm setting of the dinning space. More than 40 people filled 5 tables. Once everyone had arrived and seated, A Christmas quiz game started the lunch party, it energized the groups and surprisingly was dominated by a little boy! The two winner teams won prizes to share among them. Christmas spirit is high and alive!



After the quiz game, the restaurant started to serve lunch. The specialty of the restaurant, roast chicken, came after the appetizers. The strictly selected chickens are imported from France and roasted in a high-quality French-made machine. It was Iron Chief Thierry Houngues’s intention to bring authentic French tastes to Japan. The crisp, golden-brown chicken skin with juicy meat exceeded the expectations of both sophisticated diners and little children. The lunch set finished with a creamy chocolate mousse with caramel sauce.



Our organizer and professional magician Alex moved from table to table between dishes to perform magic to our guests. His jaw-dropping tricks had brought laughter and surprises to our members and earned himself respects and admirations. ^^



At the end, gift exchange participants each got an anonymous present from another person. Some got goodies like wine and chocolates; some got useful kitchen tools; one little boy delightfully got a huge can of caramel popcorns, which his dad generously shared it with other people around the room; ^^ another guest got a statue of liberty as her gift! The party was heart-warming and filled with joy of the holiday.



As for organizers, we also got two cakes baked by our dear members, we were so glad and shared them right after the party! Thanks to these two anonymous members who made the cakes! You made our day!
