Chefs Of World Leaders And InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts Feed New York's Hungry Like Royalty To Shine A Spotlight On Hunger

NEW YORK, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand and members of Le Club des Chefs de Chefs (C.C.C.) -- the organization of chefs to the world's Heads of State -- are in New York serving the city's hungry dishes that are literally fit for a king. Engaging in "diplomacy through gastronomy", 20 personal chefs of the world's presidents, prime ministers, kings, queens and princes are partnering with the InterContinental New York Barclay Hotel's Executive Chef Serge Devesa and City Harvest to serve lunch to more than 200 New Yorkers in need at the Xavier Mission, located at 55 W 15th Street in New York on Saturday, July 27.

The recipes being prepared, which are not necessarily haute cuisine, provide a view of home-style cooking from the first families of the world. Ten dishes created by the personal chefs of the President of the United States, the Queen of England, Queen of Denmark, Chancellor of Germany, President of India, Prime Minister of Canada, Prince of Monaco – and other world leaders recipes will be featured at the luncheon.

Le Club des Chefs de Chefs, the InterContinental New York Barclay – a leader in sustainable hospitality and the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand – a premiere host for traveling heads of state and their delegations are sponsoring the lunch at Xavier Mission, and through this philanthropic project, they aim to highlight the importance of hunger alleviation.

During the week of July 29th, 16 InterContinental properties' restaurants in the U.S., Canada, Costa Rica and Argentina will feature the dishes as part of a special "Fit for Royalty" menu. A portion of the proceeds from this menu will be donated to local food banks in participating hotels' cities.
