My daughter and I had a very special date night provided to us by the InterContinental Hotels and Resorts. It was great to get dressed up and head into the City with my doll; what made it even better was the car service provided that had Sophia smiling from ear to ear because Mommy was sitting in the back with her! I never realized that I had always been a driver aka personal chauffeur and never got to sit back in the car with her and hold hands as we made our way to the event.
When we arrived at the beautiful Ca Va Brasserie we were greeted by a warm and welcoming staff. The kids were ushered to a private area and given aprons and chef hats! Our little group of foodies were able to sample the new Planet Trekkers Children’s Menu. Designed exclusively for young InterContinental hotel guests by a wad winning chef Theo Randall and child food expert and best-selling international author Annabel Karmel. The menu was developed from start to finish with nutrition and a theme of food exploration at its core.
The Planet Trekkers Programme features the InterContinental’s signature club and global children’s menu designed to inspire your child as they embark on a colourful voyage of discovery. Created for children aged 4 to 12 with innate love for imagination and curiosity, our programme promises a wide array of creative and immersive activities. These specially crafted activities promise your child greater awareness and appreciation of the world.
Be it a city or a resort, the young explorers will learn about the unique characteristics of the country that you have chosen for that memorable family getaway. We can give our children an unforgettable journey of discovery through the Planet Trekkers Programme.
I have always tried to expose Sophia to different cuisines and this event was an absolute perfect fit for us. Together we were able to participate in the tasting session that allowed her to explore different ingredients that appealed to her young palate.
The InterContinental Planet Trekkers Children’s Menu is currently available at more than 25 properties across the Americas and by 2015 most hotels in North American and South America will have the menu. With 180 hotels in more than 60 countries, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is dedicated to providing diverse, enriching experiences to help worldly travellers feel they are part of a global club. The brand’s new Planet Trekkers Children’s menu will enable guests’ children to join this club through allowing them to explore child-friendly culinary fare from around the world.
We left the tasting with our tummies and heart full; appreciative of the opportunity to have some 1 on 1 time and share one of our favorite pastimes together…fine dining.
