Red Carnation Hotel Collection President Publishes Cookbook

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Beatrice Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, a luxury collection of five- and four-star family run boutique properties, has recently published a cookbook-cum-memoir entitled A Life in Food,” for which all proceeds will be going to her two favorite UK charities, the Starlight Children’s Foundation and The Tick Tock Club.

This book is a celebration of recipes that have either been passed down in the family or discovered while traveling, and all have been perfected from her own personal experience and expertise in the kitchen. The joys of cooking are expressed through a fascinating collection of personal reminiscences that reveal how the hotels and many of their signature dishes were inspired and created.

Beatrice, along with her husband Stanley, built up a legendary reputation, and an international, family-run collection of exceptional hotels and restaurants. Today the Red Carnation Hotel Collection includes 13 five- and four-star hotels on three continents, as well as a popular London restaurant and a country Inn in Dorset. Each is overseen and supervised by Bea Tollman herself, and managed by her team of loyal and dedicated staff.

When Mrs. Tollman explains, “My love of fine dining and good food was immediately felt from my heart, and I have never stopped feeling a thrill of pleasure at hearing that a guest has appreciated a good meal and enjoyed a lovely stay,” one understands the secret of her success. Her book, her recipes, and her hotels are inspired by the same belief—a deep, genuine and heartfelt desire to please and satisfy, and ensure whatever she does, she does it with all her heart.

“A Life in Food” is available at all Red Carnation Hotels, priced $45. All proceeds of the book will go to Bea Tollman’s favorite charities. Copies can be purchased in person at The Rubens at The Palace in London, Summer Lodge Country House Hotel, Restaurant and Spa in Dorset, The Chesterfield Palm Beach, Florida, The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Cape Town.
