StayFit Chicago: Alice Waters Organic Menu
Hyatt has teamed up with Alice Waters to create a three-course organic menu to complement Hyatt’s new For Kids By Kids menu. It shows how Alice’s vision to feed children the very best organic food is aligned with our goal to make the healthy choice the easy choice for our youngest guests.
“All children deserve to eat real food,” said Alice Waters. “I wanted to do a small, three course meal, within the context of Hyatt’s initiative that could be sourced exclusively from organic farms across the country. Of course it’s about taste and ripeness and seasonality—but it’s bigger than that too: it’s about supporting the people who are taking care of the land for our future generations.”
Alice Waters’ menu at Hyatt features:
- Romaine Lettuce Hearts, Carrot Curls and a Radish Rose with Lemon Vinaigrette for Dipping
“Contrary to prevailing beliefs, getting kids to eat vegetables is not difficult. We simply have to meet their most basic impulses: to eat something that is engaging and that tastes delicious,” said Waters. “The aliveness of textures and colors, as well as the ‘do-it-yourself’ nature of this salad, makes this universally appealing to kids.”
- Grilled Chicken with Pesto Sauce, Roasted Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes
“This is a dish of simple grilled and roasted ingredients, served with a pesto sauce. The trick with something so straightforward is to be confident that the ingredients are the best that they can be.”
- Strawberry and Orange Slices served with a Sweet Juice in a Real Orange Cup
“The goal here is to appeal to kids’ imagination about ‘dessert,’ without feeding them unhealthy, sugary food,” said Waters. “A real orange cup filled with a luxurious amount of perfectly sliced ripe fruit feels special, and the juice is made with a touch of honey to sweeten it.”
