General manager of the Best Western Cresta Court in Altrincham Paul Hindley said: “There are a growing number of guests and conference delegates who already opt for the vegetarian choices on the existing restaurant menu and so in order to respond positively to the customer demand, we are now creating a new selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes for our menus.”
Robert Higginson, sous chef at the hotel, was recently presented with a professional diploma in vegetarian cuisine. Robert’s award that comes at a time when the hotel is undertaking the process to become the UK’s first Best Western hotel to be accredited by the Vegetarian Society.
“I am delighted that Robert has successfully completed his diploma from the Cordon Vert School and we will of course be involving him in the development of our new vegetarian cuisine, due to be served from January,” remarked Paul Hindley.
“Being a Vegetarian Society accredited hotel is much more than that though, it is about understanding and respecting vegetarians, ensuring that all guests receive an accommodation and conference venue experience in keeping with their tastes and beliefs, and I am confident that we can deliver that standard from early in the New Year.”
