Intercontinental David Tel Aviv is First Hotel in World to Host Colorfood Exhibit and Culinary Experience


TEL AVIV, IL. August 28, 2017 – The InterContinental David Tel Aviv, in its effort to provide guests and tourist with unique fine dining experiences, will host an edible art exhibition and experience titled Colorfood Festival. From August 27th to 31st, visitors will experience a colorful five-course menu showcasing works of Kosher epicurean wonder in line with the exhibition of artwork inspiring their dishes at Aubergine. The Colorfood Festival will be the latest of the innovative culinary experiences to be hosted by the hotel, with its immediate predecessor being the sold-out Taste of Michelin earlier this year.

Colorfood is a unique sensory concept created by photographer Dan Lev and producer Ilit Engel, bridging their passions for fine art and fine dining into one dynamic project.

“Aubergine once again looks forward to being the center of the Tel Aviv food scene through welcoming Colorfood for its first restaurant collaboration,” said David Cohen, general manager of the InterContinental David Tel Aviv. “This culinary mastery will bring together foodies and art enthusiasts alike, giving them the ability to experience modern fine arts through their palate. Aubergine, which prides itself on avant-garde cuisine, will fill each dish with passion, creativity and color. We are certain that the festival will further enhance the hotel stature through innovation.”

This concept comes from the curator’s idea of using color as inspiration for food dishes. It taps into the emotional senses affected by color like personal desire, fantasy, memory, and others. The process of developing this project reflected the steps of food preparation in the kitchen: experimenting, mixing, tasting, deliberations, and finally - serving.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
