Join Executive Chef and Maître Cuisinier de France Xavier Salomon in welcoming some of the most innovative talent of the culinary world to the San Francisco Coast in Half Moon Bay.

Our visiting chefs will team up with Navio Chef Jason Pringle for an exclusive culinary retreat weekend each month celebrating the unique global cuisine they have mastered and presented with modern and innovative flair.  The weekend will begin with a hands-on cooking class where the attendees will actually prepare a menu driven by the visiting chefs.  They will then enjoy the fruits of their labor along with wine pairings to complement the global destination featured.

The visiting chef will also present two dishes on the Navio tasting menu for Saturday night as well as a pop-up station in our renowned Sunday Brunch.
