Is this Spa Cuisine? Canyon Ranch’s Secret Sauce
I recently went to have dinner with my mother who was at Canyon Ranch for a few days, and I learned one of the the dirty little secrets of the famous spa in Lenox: You’re allowed to eat as much as you want! I saw the man at the next table have three orders of lamb chops as well as salad and plate of pasta. And then he had a hot fudge sundae for dessert. When I looked around the dining room, I noticed that most people were having hot fudge sundaes. I was beginning to understand that it’s not just the massages and exercise classes that lure my mom to Canyon Ranch, it’s the food. My mom did some research and found out that Canyon Ranch gets its hot fudge from Wax Orchards (which has an online store.) Sweetened with concentrated fruit juice, the chocolate sauce has 45 calories per tablespoon and is one of the reasons why people who go to Canyon Ranch are always smiling.
