Hawthorn Suites, extended stay brand by Wyndham Hotel Group, has launched a special electronic cookbook called Homemade @ Hawthorn. The book is aimed to teach long-stay guests cook simple and easy-to-make food from ingredients that they have.
The book was made in partnership with such famous people as Chef Hari Nayak (a chef, restaurateur and author of culinary books from New York) and Chef James Rigato (owner of several restaurants and a former competitor of Top Chef). They were asked to create special receipts from seasonal products. These receipts are available in the e-cookbook of Hawthorn Suites and are suitable for people who live in extended stay residences. Currently, the cookbook contains numerous fall and winter dishes, and, as seasons change, spring and summer receipts will be added to it. There are both meat and vegetarian dishes. Some dishes available include rigatoni with kale, sloppy joe tostadas, salad with chickpeas, broccoli slaw and much more.
According to the latest study conducted by Hawthorn Suites, as many as 66% of Americans say they are ready to cook at a hotel room in case it has a kitchen as this creates a home-like feeling. When asked about type of food they crave the most while travelling, 38% of respondents named baked goods, 31% wanted pasta, and 27% were lacking salad the most. These were the dishes that Homemade @ Hawthorn added first. It was also decided to put recipes of health-conscious dishes as most of respondents (54%) said it was harder for them to find healthy food while traveling.
