Growing up on the peninsula, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay was the apogee of all that is comfort and luxury. Even though I lived a short fifteen-minute drive away, I always wished I could stay there for even just one night to experience everything it had to offer.
Fast forward to now, and I’ll finally have the opportunity to check out The Ritz-Carlton, HMB for myself and witness their brand new Global Cuisine Series!
For the first time, The Ritz is combining their famous luxury with famous food. From now until December, you can book a stay and have an immersive experience that involves a cooking class by a celebre-chef from San Francisco and a luncheon based on what you cook. That’s in addition wine pairings and the already fantastic views that The Ritz offers. I know—amazing.
Even as a local, this experience is too good to pass up and is calling for the perfect staycation outside of the city. Check out their full schedule below of chefs, and book your weekend getaway!
