Mandarin Oriental, Sanya has collaborated with acclaimed French naturopath Liliane Israel to introduce Gourmet Healthy Delights menus. Based on her Wellness GastronomyTM concept, the new dishes offered at Pavilion and Yi Yang Cantonese restaurants are designed to connect the pleasure of dining with an awareness of eating wisely.
Liliane has worked closely with Mandarin Oriental chefs to create a selection of scientifically based Gourmet Healthy Delights made from natural, unprocessed food that contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. The dishes incorporate an array of essential nutrients, including high fibres, low fats, high quality proteins, natural sweeteners instead of sugar, and rejuvenating antioxidants.
Gourmet Healthy Delights options include Light Delights to help manage weight without sacrificing flavour, and Vitality creations that boost energy and nutrition levels. Diners can mix and match these dishes to suit their personal preferences.
Guests can enjoy a wholesome start to their day from the Healthy Delight Breakfast Buffet at Pavilion all-day restaurant.
Liliane has teamed up with Chef Leung, Chinese Executive Chef of Yi Yang restaurant, to interweave Wellness Gastronomy TM with the traditional Chinese approach of grouping foods according to the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The menu offers choices that balance specific seasonal energy levels to achieve Yin and Yang harmony. Healthy options include Braised tree chicken with mountain willow leaf, Wok fried Hainan Hele crab with yellow chilli and Steamed Hainan baby lobster with egg white.
