As part of the group’s commitment to respect and care for the wider community, we are pleased to launch our Eat Well With Us corporate social responsibility initiative.
Harnessing the collective experience of our chefs from the group’s eleven hotels, the initiative aims to enliven the meals served at four local charity homes by empowering their resident cooks with recipes and skills that will add a new dimension to their cooking.
These recipes have been specially created by the chefs, taking into account the homes’ food budgets and dietary needs of their beneficiaries.
