La Quinta Resort is Blown Away By JBF Rising Star Semi-Finalist Chef Ruiz in Taste of Waldorf Astoria

The James Beard Foundation and The Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts have been doing things a little differently this year with a new partnership for their global Taste of Waldorf Astoria program. By matching five JBF Rising Star semi-finalist chefs with some super talented Michelin-starred Waldorf chefs, this program is hoping to find their next iconic culinary dish.

The series of events kicked off on October 18 when Chris Kajioka went to Waldorf Astoria Berlin to cook alongside Master Chef Pierre Gagnaire. At the very same time, David Posey was at Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts to work with Master Chef Heinz Beck. November 17 brought Cara Stadler to Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh to share a kitchen with The Galvin Brothers, and the following day Eduardo Ruiz arrived at La Quinta Resort & Club to collaborate with Master Chef Jimmy Schmidt. Finally, November 30 took Marjorie Meek Bradley to Waldorf Astoria Shanghai to learn from Master Chef Jan Van Dyke.
