Exclusive, interactive experience designed especially for
guests, locals, small groups and team building

GEORGETOWN, GRAND CAYMAN – NOV. 26, 2015 – The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman proudly announced today the debut of its newest experiential offering, The Culinary Studio. The new, highly interactive cooking studio is designed exclusively for guests and locals alike, as well as social, corporate and guest events and team building experiences. Opening this week, the chic, high design space will offer inventive classes conceived by the resort’s culinary team featuring a wide variety of themes.

The new Culinary Studio experiences will draw inspiration from many of the hotel’s signature restaurant offerings including Blue by Eric Ripert and Taikun, among others, and will also offer team building cooking classes, perfect for a small group or retreat. A fun addition to the new studio will also be the introduction of a new “Chopped” style cook-off class, which partners guests with the hotel’s own Ritz-Carlton Chef team in a friendly competition style environment.

A sampling of the newly created culinary studio experiences include:

Blue Uncovered:

Guests may enjoy an interactive experience which includes locally sourced seafood, elevated with seasonal flavors and masterful technique.
