Guests of the Halekulani luxury resort in Waikiki, Hawaii no longer have to wonder what additives or preservatives are lurking in their food. The resort has removed some genetically modified organisms (GMO) from its Orchids restaurant menu and is making a conscious effort to expand its GMO-free offerings. “I have been a longtime proponent of health-conscious cuisine — foods that are locally sourced, simple, pure and unprocessed,” says Executive Chef Vikram Garg. [These pure foods] “speak to the way so many of our discriminationng guests live and eat.” Local organic farms provide the produce for the resorts’ kitchens; all dairy, fish, meat, fruits and vegetables are free of chemicals, preservatives, hormones, food additives, enzyme flavorings and processing agents; fish are wild-caught; and the wines and fruit juices offered are organic.
