Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale’s Culinary Academy customizes sessions for groups to tailor the lessons to fit their specific needs, ranging from an “Iron Chef” theme to a classic teacher-student setup. Depending on size and the interests of the team, groups are able to take part in experiences such as instructional classes, cook-offs, competitions, demonstrations, and much more. Options include:
Wine Lovers’ Pairing
For wine-lovers, Four Seasons offers a wine-pairing dinner that also provides an educational twist. Guests have the option of having a wine sommelier guide and explain the secrets to what create the perfect pairing partner for a specific dish. The sommelier makes the dinner fun and informative, giving background information and fun facts about the vineyard or the people who are behind the making of each wine.
Four Seasons also offers an unexpected alternative for groups tired of the classic wine-pairing – beer-pairing! As the guests experience a gourmet Four Seasons meal paired with internationally acclaimed beers, a knowledgeable beer specialist informs and guides the group through each pairing. With a focus on local breweries, all beers are decanted from kegs, which have no additives and keep it fresher than if it were served in bottles.
Enjoy this unique pairing dinner, featuring all things chocolate! Much like fine wine, there are many complexities to different types of chocolate and levels of flavor, depending where the cacao beans were grown, roasting technique and processing.
Surprisingly, like wine, tea pairs well with food. For the tea connoisseur, hojicha tea with spicy and nutty food is a must. The versatile flavors of tea can be paired with food ranging from spicy to sweet. Select the geographic region and the Four Seasons culinary team will create a custom meal to match the flavor profile.
These are but a few of the many options available. For additional information about planning a program with Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale, please contact our Sales Team at (480) 513-5020 or inquire online.More posts from January 2017
