Mr. Toshinori Sokabe, the head chef of our hotel, has teamed up to hold the final chapter of the gastronomic event “Sustainable Table”, which aims to disseminate and promote sustainable activities related to food.
So far, it has been held three times on the themes of plant-based food, food loss, sustainable seafood and better meat. We have offered course meals using ingredients based on each theme. This time, which is the culmination of the sustainable table, we welcome you with the theme of “well-being”. It is an event where you can enjoy cooking while learning about food sustainability, such as the chef in charge giving a presentation of the ingredients and cooking methods for each item, and presenting the presentation on the spot.
At our hotel, we will continue to expand our efforts to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) not only for food but also for the entire hotel.
