The Adolphus’ Storied Restaurant Makes Short Work of Milestone Moments
Treats with a Kick
Mix and mingle with traditional Mexican food.
If you're an avid food network fan, you’ve probably noticed a steady increase in the number and types of cooking competitions over the last few years. Cooking is not only cool, it’s competitive and allows amateur chefs a chance to make it big.
And while the rest of us may not be destined for a spot on TV shows such as “Top Chef” or “Chopped,” preparing great food is defi nitely fun. For planners, off ering groups the chance to participate in culinary events adds a creative and educational component to meetings. And it’s catching on in a big way.
Looking for a fun group event? Set up a tequila tasting at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. The hotel’s newly unveiled Tequila Vault features a cache of rare spirits, including a prized Patrón en Lalique valued at more than $8,000. Only 100 bottles of Patrón en Lalique were ever produced.
The Tequila Vault was custom designed and crafted, and showcases agave-based spirits including the Tequila Patrón collection, Fearing’s signature Barrel Select Tequila and a wide array of mezcals, which are derived from agave.
