Culinary Tour

  • Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm
    Location: Citron Restaurant (Monterrey Room)

Come meet the chefs of the JW Marriot as they take you on a culinary tour of Grande Lakes. Begin by dividing up into groups as we move from station to station learning from the team of professionals on property that care for the bees, tend the smoker, and hand select all the herbs and produce for menu offerings throughout the resort. Also you will be able to meet the team's in-house cicerone that creates the beers on tap in Whisper Creek Kitchen and learn the differences in brew types and flavor profiles. Afterwards enjoy your lunch menu that will feature the items you’ve learned about and sampled during the presentations. This is an interactive event that the culinary team has created just for us and they are looking forward to getting out of the kitchen and meeting you all in person!
