Relais & Châteaux properties embark on fine vegetarian dining
The global increase in the consumption of meat and fish is harming ecosystems and depleting natural resources. But opting for a plant-based diet using local seasonal products would contribute greatly to protecting the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 15%.
In light of these facts, Relais & Châteaux decided to take action. Some properties are touting the virtues of vegetarian or vegan fare in their restaurants to advocate for sustainable clean cuisine.
Whether serving up menus in an English manor, on the shores of an idyllic beach, in the middle of a Costa Rican forest or in a New York dining room, these chefs have set out to reinvent vegetarian cuisine with delectable dishes that are a pleasure to share.
About Relais & Châteaux
Founded in 1954, Relais & Châteaux is an association of over 540 exceptional hotels and restaurants run by independent men and women who share the same passion for their profession and for maintaining authentic relationships with their clients.
The members of Relais & Châteaux are present on every continent, from the vineyards of Napa Valley to Provence and the Indian Ocean. Each one invites you to discover the art of living through the specific culture of the locale and to share in a unique human adventure.
Each member of Relais & Châteaux is profoundly determined to protect, share and showcase the richness and diversity of cuisines and hospitality throughout the world. They endorse this ambition, in keeping with the preservation of local heritage and the environment, through the Relais & Châteaux Vision, presented to UNESCO in November 2014.
