The Ritz-Carlton is inviting guests to indulge their culinary senses at its first Stellar Dining Series, where Michelin-starred chefs, mixologists and patissiers will tour four of Asia Pacific’s gourmet cities from 01 November until 01 December 2018. The journey will start at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore, then travel through Osaka and Hong Kong to conclude at The Ritz-Carlton, Beijing.
The Stellar Dining Series has been designed as a celestial journey of four gastronomic festivals that celebrate The Ritz-Carlton’s legendary 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-starred chefs from Hong Kong, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Singapore and Shanghai and guests can participate in extraordinary satellite workshops.
