Giant Bolo Rei offered to the people of Olhão

Giant Bolo Rei offered to the people of Olhão

One of the ways of celebrating Christmas this year is to bake two giant cakes ready to be eaten next Saturday 15th. December at Largo da Restauração in Olhão.

The cakes are the work of chief pastry chef Filipe Martins, owner of ”Pastelaria Kubidoce” with the support of the municipality. From 10am on the 15th. December, chef Martins has decided to offer Christmas delicacies to the people of Olhão promoting, for all who appear at Largo da Restauração, the best of what Olhão can make, thereby animating the city during this Christmas celebration together with the two cakes measuring about 70 meters and weighing some 200 kilos.

All can try the traditional ”Bolo Rei” with its cristalized fruits as well as chef Martins own version with chocolate, almonds and cashew nuts, which is bound to prove successful.
Chef Martins will need a team of 20 working for one or two days to achieve his objective, taking 10 hours just for baking. He admits that this is something he has always wanted to do, despite the considerable cost for this time of crisis of some two thousand euros , which will be supported by Olhão municipality and ACRAL ( association for commerce for the region of the Algarve).

Chef Martins, who recently took an particular interest in chocolate confectionery, trained with Tiago Faustino resulting in him achieving first prize as Best Portuguese Chocolatier in 2010 at the international festival for chocolate in Obidos.
