Situated at the Mackenzies restaurant, the Raw Breakfast Bar has been introduced to the hotel’s daily breakfast buffet.
Items on the Heritage Queenstown’s Raw Breakfast Bar include Bircher muesli, complete with pipettes of raw berry coulis, raw granola, coconut ‘yoghurt,’ nuts and raw cabbage linseed ‘bread.’
The Raw Breakfast Bar is included as part of the continental and full buffet breakfast at Heritage Queenstown’s Mackenzies restaurant and is available daily.
“This initiative has been an opportunity to change the perceptions of hotel breakfast food,” says Heritage Queenstown executive chef Adrian Lowrey. “We are preparing food that retains its natural flavours and nutritional value and our guests are loving it.”
Unprocessed and uncooked plant foods are the key component for the Raw Breakfast Bar concept. Nothing is cooked above 41 degrees Celsius as doing so can destroy enzymes and absorption.
Heritage Hotels, a hospitality industry leader in healthy and conscious cuisine, was the first New Zealand hotel group to offer guests a Raw Breakfast Bar, launching the concept at Heritage Auckland in 2013. The initiative builds on a company dining philosophy called the Good Food Project.
