The third annual Dorado Beach Culinary Getaway takes place this October

Celebrity chef José Andrés returns to Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, this October with some of the world’s most creative culinary minds for the third annual Culinary Getaway.

The lush oceanfront sanctuary in Puerto Rico once again plays host for a one-of-a-kind gastronomic weekend filled with interactive cooking demonstrations, exclusive oceanfront dinners and a truly memorable culinary and cultural experience.

Chef Andrés, one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People”, welcomes esteemed peers and personal friends Ludo Lefebvre, Tyler Florence and Lorena Garcia, to host events throughout the weekend. Top chefs from around Puerto Rico will also be invited to display their culinary skills in a special event alongside Chef Andrés.

This year’s Dorado Beach Culinary getaway will also celebrate a year since the storied Reserve reopened its doors following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.
