Dining and traveling go hand-in-hand. After all, what better way is there to experience the flavors of a destination?

End-Of-Summer Barbecue at Hotel Bel-Air

Check into Hotel Bel-Air in time for an end-of-summer barbecue extravaganza on September 13. Master chef Wolfgang Puck is joined by returning chefs Francis Mallmann (Los Fuegos), Nancy Silverton (Mozza Restaurant Group), and Eric Werner (Hartwood), along with newcomer Dave Pynt (Burnt Ends) for the ultimate barbecue party on the hotel’s front lawn. Hotel Bel-Air is situated on 12 acres of landscaped gardens and draws a well-heeled clientele from around the world. Guests will dine at communal tables on the lush hotel grounds, while each chef showcases their individual approach to barbecue fare, from Texas slow-cooked meats and spicy flavors of Kansas City’s signature sauces, to the unique smokey flavors of Australian barbecue. The chefs will also join the evening’s festivities and personally sign cookbooks available for purchase that evening. This event is part of Hotel Bel-Air’s visiting chef series, which continues this fall with a dinner on November 15 from acclaimed chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park.

National Chocolate Day at Four Seasons Orlando

Not many people need an excuse to indulge in chocolate delights, but setting aside a day to celebrate the confection is as good as any. At Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, executive pastry chef Rabii Saber has prepared a delicious assortment of desserts, and will showcase his award-winning “Curtain Rise” chocolate cake on September 13. In addition, the resort will welcome master sommelier George Miliotes for the event, who will present dessert wines and specialty drinks to accompany the sweet smorgasbord. Chef Saber was recently invited to participate in the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie (often referred to as a “Pastry Olympics”) in Lyon, France in January 2017, where Team USA took home 4th place overall. His stunning chocolate cake called the “Curtain Rise” took home the highest honor in the chocolate category. The special cake features several layers: a thin, crispy layer of chocolate with pieces of caramelized hazelnut; two layers of chocolate sponge cake; a delicate layer of Caraibe chocolate cremeux; and a layer of coffee bean crème brulee. The entire cake is wrapped with a thin chocolate glaze.
