A Taste of the South with the InterContinental Hotel Kitchen Passport Program
Consider fine dining at a luxury hotel, and then imagine if you could recreate that type of meal in your own home. This is all possible with InterContinental Hotel’s kitchen cookbook iPad app, which shares recipes created by their state-of-the-art culinary team from around the world. Always determined to give their guests an insider experience, InterContinental recently launched their Kitchen Passport Program, and joined their talented culinary team with food influencers from around the country to create new and creative recipes for the app.
Their first round of the program was held at the InterContinental Hotel Buckhead Atlanta site, where I joined InterContinental and chef Art Smith at the hotel's restaurant, Southern Art, to develop three new recipes for the iPad app. Ironically enough, while working to create one-of-a-kind experiences for InterContinental guests, I enjoyed a few of my own while working with the animated Top Chef Masters chef. As we worked to develop an appetizer, main dish, and dessert, chef Smith and I bonded over our love of cooking and the South, and our recipes reflect just that, ranging from innovative and creative to healthy and ground-breaking. Our time together finished up at a tasting event at InterContinental Buckhead, where food influencers of Atlanta and the press gathered to speak with chef Smith and I about our recipes and to try them first hand.
