DENHAM, U.K. — Following the healthy lifestyles trend, Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Teresa Cutter, one of Australia’s leading authorities on healthy cooking, to develop a range of fresh and healthy menu options exclusively for the meetings market at its properties across Asia, the Middle East and Africa (AMEA).
Cutter — a chef, nutrition expert and certified fitness trainer — will create 60 recipes for Crowne Plaza meetings’ menus. Dishes will include poached organic chicken salad with pistachio and lemon parsley mint salsa verde and a protein-rich power smoothie made with almond milk, vanilla bean and berries.
“This new healthy-eating program for Crowne Plaza will further enhance what we offer today’s high-achieving travellers to ensure they stay at the top of their game,” said Phil Broad, VP, F&B, InterContinental Hotels Group, AMEA. “We are constantly looking for new ways to improve our food and beverage programs and develop industry initiatives across IHG with unique collaborations each tailored to the needs of our brands. This year, we’ve launched the InterContinental Planet Trekkers Children’s Menu developed by celebrity chef Theo Randall and leading children’s food expert book author Annabel Karmel MBE, and we most recently announced the partnership with Nutrition Australia to develop a kids’ menu for Holiday Inn.”
