The Ritz-Carlton is inviting guests to indulge their culinary senses at the first Stellar Dining Series, where Michelin-star chefs, mixologists and patissiers will tour four of Asia Pacific’s gourmet cities from November 1 to December 1, 2018.

The journey will start at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore, then travel through Osaka and Hong Kong to finally land at The Ritz-Carlton, Beijing.

The Stellar Dining Series has been designed as a celestial journey of four gastronomic festivals that celebrate the legendary The Ritz-Carlton culinary craftsmanship and innovation.

Each destination offers a portal into the world of The Ritz-Carlton’s Michelin-starred restaurants and bars in Asia Pacific. Collaborative menus will be created by Michelin-star chefs from Hong Kong, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Singapore and Shanghai and guests can participate in extraordinary satellite workshops.

“Epicurean artisanship, creative mixology and exceptional service are Ritz-Carlton signatures and the Stellar Dining Series of experiences and masterclasses capture that,” said Bruce Ryde, vice president luxury brands and brand management, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “This month-long celebration showcases our incredible restaurant and bar teams who have many Michelin Stars and countless accolades between them.”

“Our chefs have a history of proudly sharing their culinary passions with their guests, constantly shooting for the stars and elevating their craft for discerning diners,” said Petr Raba, vice president, food and beverage operations, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “The Stellar Dining Series allows us to take our star teams to share their creations in some of the most iconic dining destinations in the region today.”
