A Look Inside Food & Beverage at Montage Hotels & Resorts
By James Bermingham Vice President, Montage Hotels & Resorts | August 12, 2012
"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."
- Virginia Woolf
This quote truly reflects the focus we take to the culinary programs at every Montage Hotel & Resort. Our focus on dining is one of our brand pillars, with a spotlight on delivering the best possible experience for our guests. Each restaurant has been carefully crafted to take inspiration from their environment -- whether beach, city or mountain -- incorporating a sense of spirit and place into the design and cuisine. In turn, our offerings have blossomed into attractions in and of themselves.
We focus on execution and meticulousness and have created a recipe based on three-prongs defining our daily course.
1. Follow Tradition over Trend
At Montage, we believe the heart and soul of inspired cooking is derived from respect of techniques and traditions refined over the course of centuries. Today's trends are important, but the best chefs still follow the footsteps of great traditions.
Sustainable farming is the perfect example of this. It's a trend that's been important since we opened our first luxury hotel. We strive to find the best produce locally or regionally, with a view toward using the freshest produce available and to minimize the environmental footprint.
