In an effort to highlight the benefits of healthy cooking, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) recently announced a partnership with Teresa Cutter.
Cutter is the founder of The Healthy Chef and will develop a range of healthy menu options exclusively for the MICE market in Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts across Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA).
Cutter will create a collection of 60 recipes for Crowne Plaza meetings’ menus including breakfast, mid-morning, lunch, afternoon tea and snacks. Dishes will include poached organic chicken salad with pistachio and lemon parsley mint salsa verde or a protein rich power smoothie for breakfast made with almond milk, vanilla bean and lush berries.
Phil Broad, vice president food & beverage, IHG AMEA said: “This new healthy eating programme for Crowne Plaza will further enhance what we offer. We are constantly looking for new ways to improve our food and beverage programmes and develop industry initiatives. This year, we’ve launched the InterContinental Planet Trekkers Children’s Menu developed by chef Theo Randall and Annabel Karmel MBE.”
There are 21 Crowne Plaza properties in the Middle East with four more due to open over the next three to five years.
