Fairmont Hotels to offer menu for guests with dietary restrictions

TORONTO As of January 1, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will offer Lifestyle Cuisine Plus, a new menu available upon request for guests with specific diet-dependent conditions like diabetes, heart disease and gluten-free, as well as unique dietary preferences including, macrobiotic, raw and vegan diets.

Fairmont chefs have been trained to prepare an array of special dietary and allergy-specific meals and are equipped with Axxya Systems’ Nutritionist Pro recipe analysis software to help customize entrees and menus to fit with guests’ requests for caloric and nutritional requirements.

While the same nutritional parameters guide Fairmont chefs across the globe, actual menu offerings will reflect the distinctive style and unique food products of each destination.  A sampling includes Baked Tofu with Bean Noodles at Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa (gluten-free); Arame with Sunflower Seeds, Chives and Mustard at Fairmont Beijing (macrobiotic); Zucchini, Carrot, Portobello and Cashew Butter Pave at Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club (raw); Chilled Pea Soup with Tomato and Key West Shrimp at Fairmont Turnberry Isle (heart-healthy); and Chocolate Ganache Flan at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (vegan).

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.

Guests can enjoy these flavors in their own homes by visiting for original recipes from the Lifestyle Cuisine and Lifestyle Cuisine Plus menus.  A mix of user-generated media and nontraditional Fairmont content, the online site is a virtual gathering place where fans of the brand can post photos or videos from a memorable trip, participate in exclusive polls and contests, access exclusive hotel and destination content, and find recipes from across the Fairmont collection.
