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.

I would just like to say what a well planned trip I had just attended last week with Jim Beam group to St Croix. Allie was outstanding and had everything handled like a true professional. I want to thank you all for one of the best times to be had. All the planned events were great to attend and hit every beat there was. Allie was a great help in everything we did. I truly believe you have an Ace in the hole with her. Once again thanks!
