Committed to serving innovative and scrumptious delicacies across its properties, earlier this year Marriott International introduced the ‘Mood Diets’ menu which was designed to meet the nutrient requirements of guests while simultaneously meeting the unconscious food cravings that emerge from fluctuating temperaments.
Keeping the momentum alive, Marriott International is taking it a notch higher with the introduction of Mood Diets 2.0, with a vegan touch to all the dishes, curated from natural, plant-based dishes.
The new Mood Diet 2.0 menu will be co-created by crowd sourcing authentic recipes via a contest that will be hosted across 15 cities. The recipes will need to be vegan based, simple and fuss free preparations using one or more of the 10 organic ingredients shortlisted by their master Chefs. The top 3 recipes will be featured in the upcoming Mood Diets 2.0 menu that will be introduced by the end of year.
Participants can email recipes at [email protected] along with the participants full name, location, and contact details. The ingredients and recipe format can be downloaded from here. The contest will run from from 1st Dec to 15th Dec.
Commenting on the crowdsourced menu design, Himanshu Taneja, Culinary Director – South Asia, Marriott International said, “With this initiative we want to engage with the larger community, encouraging them to share authentic recipes with their own local touch. We are confident the added filter of sustainability will get foodies and home-grown chefs interested & excited, to try something new and creative. Overall research also shows a sustainable diet improves moods and productivity levels, making it an obvious choice for the Mood Diets menu”.
Mood Diets 2.0 will be rolled out across 21 Marriott International hotels.
