The culinary history of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is epitomized by iconic dishes like Eggs Benedict, Red Velvet Cake, and the Waldorf Salad. To celebrate our storied link to the culinary world, the Taste of Waldorf Astoria program was launched to discover Waldorf Astoria’s next archetypal dish. Five of the James Beard Foundation’s Rising Star Chefs were teamed with five of Waldorf Astoria’s current “Master Chefs” from around the world, and each duo collaborated on their own iteration of the next Taste of Waldorf Astoria. This year’s winning dish comes from chef David Posey and Michelin-starred chef Heinz Beck, from Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel: Celeriac Risotto Alla Waldorf. The Taste of Waldorf Astoria experience gives you access to each respective hotel’s specially curated menu, which highlights it’s very own gastronomic talents. Book a stay with us, and for a premium you may opt to experience a 3-course dinner for two in a special location within the hotel or resort.
