Scandic, the Nordic region’s leading hotel chain is continuing its partnership with world-renowned chef Jamie Oliver. Earlier this year we launched the Summer and Kids menus that Jamie Oliver developed together with Scandic’s own chefs. Now it’s time to unveil Scandic’s Meeting and Conference menu. This autumn sees the launch of eight exciting and inspiring soups with a sprinkle of Jamie’s magic, specially composed for Scandic’s meeting guests.Scandic focuses on food for meetings and conferences that helps participants stay sharp and be inspired. Through its partnership with Jamie Oliver, Scandic ensures that participants enjoy delicious, nutritious and energy-packed food. The soups are accompanied by a choice of eight different toppings, giving meeting guests a chance to design their own favourite. The soups are also tailored to the season.
Jamie Oliver and Scandic have been working closely together since 2009, making Jamie part of Scandic’s strong focus on food and drink. This partnership has allowed Scandic’s guests to enjoy specially composed dishes of high quality that make best use of seasonal produce. Together with Scandic’s own chefs, Jamie has previously developed some hugely popular creations, such as Scandic’s exciting Kids menu, inspiring seasonal menus and energising refreshments and lunch dishes for our meeting and conference guests.
