Culinary Recognition

JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes have been nationally recognized in the industry for their approach to sourcing fresh food and seasonal menus. All hotel food and restaurants on the property source locally and utilize homegrown ingredients gathered from their 7,000-square-foot Whisper Creek Farm as well as other farms in the area.

Guests are encouraged to browse the gardens and sample the farm-fresh produce featured throughout the restaurants and even in the spa treatments. The gardeners coordinate with the chefs on a regular basis to ensure produce is available at its peak of flavor. Even the bartenders utilize the seasonal ingredients to create new beverages. The most unique aspect is that meats do not come from the freezer at this hotel. All food served is carefully planned and ordered based on the available ingredients.

Spouses will have an opportunity to learn some cooking tips if they choose to participate in the culinary class.
