Park Hyatt’s thirty-six hotels in twenty-four countries have earned a reputation as one of the world’s premier luxury hotel networks. Besides offering world-class accommodations, each property also boasts world-class food and wine offerings. The emphasis of Park Hyatt’s Food & Wine programs is on master chef’s using the best locally-sourced ingredients.
To celebrate this vision, Park Hyatt asked Robert Louey Design of Santa Monica to create a cookbook that features recipes from each chef, but also explores the story behind the cuisine.
Creating the book was a multi-year project. Dozens of Master Chefs on every continent produced recipes for the book. Photography was taken of both the final prepared dishes and the property locations. The end result is a culinary tour around the world.
Active worked with Robert Louey Design to produce the project. The final book is a 264-page book + cover. The cover is made from Fibermark La Crema which gives it a soft, leather-like feel. The book is sewn with a stay-flat binding to make it easy for home cooks to use in the kitchen.
Active retouched and color balanced over 100 photos from dozens of different sources to give the book a consistent look.
