The InterContinental Kitchen - a global culinary journey

From London to Los Angeles, Madrid to Mexico City, Nairobi to New Delhi – The InterContinental Kitchen takes you on a global culinary journey

To celebrate its 60th anniversary, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts worldwide have opened the doors to their famed kitchens with the release of the ultimate collective culinary work – The InterContinental Kitchen.

Within its pages, executive chefs from 142 hotels across 60 countries share their innovative and exciting recipes inspired by the cultures and flavours of the world’s great cities and resort destinations; as well as treasured classics that have built each hotel’s gastronomic reputation.

The InterContinental Kitchen contains over 300 recipes offered in the private suites, ballrooms, restaurants, bars, club rooms and via room service at InterContinental Hotels and Resorts. It also includes up to 200 photographs capturing the visual impact of the InterContinental’s food, cocktails and the sophistication of the hotels and resorts they are from.

The recipes run the gamut from Lobster and Langoustine Gratin, Maple Glazed Rack of Pork with Braised Fennel and Cured Salmon with Wild Radish Sauce, to Shepherd’s Pie, Baked Sea Bass and Kashmiri-Style Lamb Chops; making it the perfect global cooks’ companion for stylish dinner parties or casual gatherings.

“The InterContinental Kitchen supports our commitment to providing guests with memorable and unique experiences that enrich their lives and broaden their outlook. On behalf of InterContinental Executive Chefs around the world, we hope you enjoy this unique menu of authentic regional flavours and international cuisine from our kitchen to yours,” said Andrew Cosslett, Chief Executive, InterContinental Hotels Group.

More than a book of recipes, The InterContinental Kitchen offers a culinary tour of InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. Through the collection of travel vignettes and delectable recipes the home cook is invited to experience a taste of living the InterContinental life.

The growing number of InterContinental Hotels and Resorts around the world includes InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto, due to open in December 2008 and joining InterContinental Sydney and InterContinental Perth Burswood.

Other InterContinental hotels and resorts currently under development throughout the region include InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa – part of the Natadola Marine Resort development and scheduled to open in mid 2009 – and InterContinental Queenstown, opening 2010.

The InterContinental Kitchen is available online at and at InterContinental Hotels & Resorts worldwide, retailing at $60USD.
