Traveling Gourmet: Park Hyatt Unveils Culinary Workshops

Want to be master of your domain (or at least the kitchen)? We hear that Park Hyatt hotels will kick of the transformation of its Masters of Food & Wine event this January with the launch of the new Park Hyatt 'masters,' a global series of seasonally and locally inspired culinary workshops.

The dish: The workshops will take place four times per year at the change of the seasons. The program will be previewed at 16 Park Hyatt hotels internationally during the weekend of September 23.

Individual hotel itineraries showcasing regional produce during the September preview include:

Park Hyatt Zurich will host a Swiss grape harvest, a workshop on Switzerland's female winemakers and a boat trip across Lake Zurich to a winery for a bottling lesson and picnic.

Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Southern California will start the day with a farmer's breakfast, then a visit to Carlsbad Aquafarm where participants will meet the resort's seafood purveyor, followed by a local wine and cheese tasting.

Park Hyatt Mendoza will host an interactive cooking class with special recipes created for it based on a signature olive oil produced in a nearby grove.

Park Hyatt Maldives will take guests by boat to a nearby island to meet a local grower and after selecting ingredients, they will head back to the resort, first stopping to fish for their dinner in the waters surrounding Hadahaa Island. The day concludes with a chef-led cooking class on traditional Maldivian cuisine using the fresh ingredients collected that day.

The Park Hyatt masters events will take place on the turning of the seasons on the weekends of January 13-15, March 23-25, June 24-26 and September 21-23.
