InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announces the launch of its Culinary Panel: a new initiative featuring five celebrated chefs who have been appointed IHG Culinary Ambassadors to develop a repertoire of unique signature dishes for guests dining in IHG's hotels across the Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region.

The five IHG Culinary Ambassadors, who are all award-winning chefs, represent a diverse range of cuisines, including Limelight celebrity chefs Theo Randall  for Italian, and Dean Brettschneider for Bakery and Pastry.

Speaking on his appointment as an IHG Culinary Ambassador, Theo Randall commented: "One of the most exciting things about being on the Culinary Panel is being able to reflect my own personality and world-view on food in each recipe. I get to share my creations with other chefs and this is a great opportunity for me to extend the reach of my cuisine with IHG guests across Asia, Middle East and Africa. I have worked with IHG for some time now and I'm confident that with the guidelines and training in place, the restaurants using my recipes will do each dish justice."

Each Culinary Ambassador has created 20 recipes ranging from appetisers to main courses and desserts. Launching today and rolling out throughout the rest of the year, guests can enjoy a selection of these dishes in select restaurants at InterContinental,Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn hotels and resorts in the region.
