From the healthy grains and flaxseeds, amaranth and chia muffins and croissants, to integrating the ancient goodness much deeper, the Feel Good menu lays emphasis on ancient practice of slow cooking using local and seasonal ingredients. Slowly but steadily guests are realizing that immunity must be a way of life and hence, the awareness to incorporate well-being ingredients in their diets.

The Feel-Good menu is healthy, nutritious, and packed with flavours.

The Chefs at ITC Hotels have strived to amalgamate the goodness of the ingredients in the main dish making it wholesome and tasty. 

Manisha Bhasin, Corporate Executive Chef, ITC Hotels said, “The Feel Good Menu focusses on authenticity, responsible sourcing, health ingredients and craftsmanship. The dishes are made with forgotten grains and superfoods using age-old cooking methods in keeping with ITC Hotels ethos of Responsible Luxury. The Feel Good menu offers A la Carte Options as well as Combo meals”
