Fairmont chefs are trained to prepare special dietary and allergy-specific meals and are equipped with Nutritionist Pro by Axxya Systems recipe analysis software to help customize entrées and menus. The food is comprised of nutrient-rich ingredients, clean cooking methods and local food products served to guests in the restaurant, bar, banquet or their room.
A typical Fairmont Lifestyle Cuisine Plus menu includes a selection of appetizers, entrées and desserts to address diabetes, heart health as well as vegan, raw, macrobiotic and gluten-free diets. Guests with specific food allergies and sensitivities can speak with the chef to plan food options during their stay.
While the same nutritional parameters guide Fairmont chefs across the globe, actual menu offerings reflect the distinctive style and food products of each destination. For example, at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, a gluten-free dish would include baked tofu with bean noodles; at Fairmont Beijing, Arame with sunflower seeds, chives and mustard would be a macrobiotic meal; while at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver chocolate ganache flan would serve as a vegan dessert.
Fairmont Lifestyle Cuisine Plus is an extension of Fairmont Lifestyle Cuisine, which is targeted to the most common dietary requests found among guests, such as low-fat, vegetarian and low-carbohydrate concerns. Complementing the new menus are Lifestyle beverages, offering five new varieties of Fairmont wellness teas, juices, shakes and more.
The dietary experience extends to guests’ homes where they can log onto everyonesanoriginal.com, for original recipes from the Lifestyle Cuisine and Lifestyle Cuisine Plus menus.
