Committed to serving innovative and delicious delicacies across its properties, 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 authentic crowdsourcing recipes via a contest hosted across 15 cities. The recipes will need vegan-based, simple, and fuss-free preparations using one or more of the ten organic ingredients shortlisted by our master Chefs. The top 3 recipes will be featured in the upcoming Mood Diets 2.0 menu introduced by the end of the year. Participation is simple and easy, and recipes are to be mailed at Mbow@marriott.com along with the participant’s full name, location, and contact details. The ingredients and recipe format can be downloaded from here, MoodDiets2.0. The contest will run from the 1st -15th December.
Sharing her thoughts on this initiative, Khushnooma Kapadia, Senior Area Director of Marketing – South Asia, Marriott International, said, “Our first installment of ‘Mood Diets’ as part of our delivery platform Marriott Bonvoy on Wheels was very well received and was hugely successful across most of our hotels. Given the positive feedback we got from our guests, we decided to introduce Mood Diets 2.0 with more changes and innovations. With sustainability becoming an integral part of our lifestyle choices and a significant priority for us as an organization, the intent was to create a newly minted diet that is uplifting and engages in creating the right kind of mood-setting for our customers. Mood Diets 2.0 showcases not only the culinary expertise of our chefs, but it also reinforces our commitment to keeping providing guests & patrons with unique & innovative f&b offerings”.
Commenting on the crowdsourced menu design, Himanshu Taneja, Culinary Director – South Asia, Marriott International, said, “Every ingredient has a unique flavor, most of which may still be undiscovered. We want to engage with the larger community, encouraging them to share authentic recipes with their local touch with this initiative. 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“.
