Brain Food / Motivating Meeting Menus

Consider Jamie Oliver’s “Brain Food” concept at your next meeting: “Soups with fresh, seasonal vegetables; salads with different dressings and fruit – each menu is desgined to be createdby the guess to their individual taste”. Oliver explains. “That encourages interactivity and communication, being together.  Thus, a meeting can become even more productive.”



Many hotel are now considering more grains, fiber & protein, smaller portions (chicken, fish, vegetarian options).  In particular breakfast ideas include: add an omelet or antioxidant yogurt station, organic cereals, or a smoothie station. 

Another creative idea:  Loews’ Color Braks – 3 small colored dished holding the same colored food. For example, the morning break – blue bowels filled with blueberries, mini-blueberry muffins; yellow break offers diced pineapple, lemon corn-bread muffins; green break offers Granny Smith Apples, peanut butter and green M&Ms.

Planning & training - stimulating flavors like ginger, horseradish, and rosemary, along with specialty drinks like orange-zested cranberry shooters, and vitamin waters.

Challenging meetings about transition or negotiation – sushi, herb roasted chicken, aromatic teas and cinnamon spiced apple shooters

Honoring accomplishments – celebratory foods such as basil and pine –nut tortellini salad, tricolor orzo and acho sugar-cured beef tenderloin, with champagnes and other sparkling beverages.

Extra Level of Service
It’s interesting that I find myself on a similar trip with another supplier this week to Pebble Beach and I’m missing the extra service that you and your team spoil us with. We had to drag our own clubs to the course, etc… Keep doing what you’re doing. Being on these back to back trips, both to very nice places, shows how that extra level of service elevates the experience dramatically. I’ll certainly recommend you to others and keep you in mind should the opportunity arise within my team for an event.
