Accenture Dinner Events
The second and third nights of the Forum offered delegates exclusive access to two landmarks that provided magnificent backdrops for awe-inspiring dinner events.
One of Brazil’s foremost treasures—the breathtaking Sugarloaf Mountain, or Pão de Açucar in Portuguese—is said to have received its name from its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated loaf sugar. Sugarloaf Mountain is a peak situated at the mouth of Guanabara Bay on a peninsula that extends into the Atlantic Ocean. This magnificent landmark provided extraordinary views of the city and surrounding districts, including Flamengo, Botafogo, Copacabana and Ipanema.
Guests travelled by glass-paneled cable cars to the midway point of the mountain, where few people are allowed to stay after dusk. During our reception, some guests wanting an additional thrill ascended to the summit by boarding a second cable car. Our evening of dinner, music and entertainment was set between the majestic mountains, combining great samba vibes with unparalleled views.
A Michelin Star Chef
Both dinners were planned under the direction of renowned Master Chef Claude Troisgros, providing refined modern French cuisine with Brazilian and global influences. The Michelin Star recipient comes from the famed Troisgros family, which began its culinary creations in France during the 1930s. Mr. Troisgros has gained further fame as the author of several books, including his best-selling cookbook From the Head to the Saucepan, as well as running his own television show. His techniques and tropical ingredients rendered an exceptional dining experience for all our guests.
