Mandarin Oriental, Sanya launches new gourmet healthy delights
September 3, 2015: Mandarin Oriental, Sanya has collaborated with French naturopath, Liliane Israel, to introduce Gourmet Healthy Delights menus. The new dishes offered at Pavilion and Yi Yang Cantonese restaurants are based on her Wellness Gastronomy concept.
Ms Israel has created a selection of scientifically based Gourmet Healthy Delights made from natural, unprocessed food that contain vitamins, minerals and enzymes. The dishes incorporate an array of essential nutrients, including high fibres, low fats, high quality proteins, natural sweeteners instead of sugar, and rejuvenating antioxidants.
Gourmet Healthy Delights options include Light Delights to help manage weight without sacrificing flavour, and Vitality creations that boost energy and nutrition levels. Diners can mix and match these dishes to suit their personal preferences. Guests can also enjoy a wholesome start through the Healthy Delight Breakfast Buffet at Pavilion all-day restaurant.
Ms Israel teamed up with Chef Leung, Chinese Executive Chef of Yi Yang restaurant, to interweave Wellness Gastronomy with the traditional Chinese approach of grouping foods according to the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The menu offers choices that balance specific seasonal energy levels to achieve Yin and Yang harmony. Healthy options include Braised tree chicken with mountain willow leaf, Wok fried Hainan Hele crab with yellow chilli and Steamed Hainan baby lobster with egg white.
