Our Parenting World (OPW) team together with Acclaimed International Food Artist Samantha Lee
Holiday Inn® Hotels & Resorts introduces its new Kids Menu to encourage family-friendly ‘fun dining’. The hotel has partnered with acclaimed international food artist, Samantha Lee where she has transformed five dishes from Holiday Inn®’s nutritionally balanced new menu into kid-friendly works of art.
During the media event, the lovely Samantha Lee gave us a step-by-step demonstration of how she created her food art with animals’ theme. Children were crowding around her watching excitedly to see how she transformed the food into pieces of art.
The three dishes are Pittafish – Veggie Pitta Burger, Grabby Crabby – DIY Lettuce Cups and Squiggly Sheep – Spaghetti Bolognese.
Samantha has designed each artwork creatively to resemble an animal which is easy to do. Parents can recreate the dishes at home easily with ‘how-to’ guides.
Parents are also given tips on how they can recreate the food art at home using the original Holiday Inn Kids Menu recipes. Through this animal theme food art, with the aim to be more appealing to the kids, to engage and encourage them and their parents to explore nutritious eating in a fun way!
After seeing the masterpieces created by Samantha, the kids had the opportunity to get hands-on to recreate one of Samantha’s artwork.
I am working on creating the dish, Squiggly Sheep – Spaghetti Bolognese and it is very easy to do!
Yummy, I really enjoyed eating the food!
