Cook, Dine, and Indulge at the Ritz London

  • Ritz Masterclass dining room
  • Ritz London Hotel
  • Laurie Kahle

There are many components to a memorable meal—food, wine, company, and setting. This year’s Masterclass  program at the landmark Ritz London brings them all together for a dining experience that begins long before you take your seat at the table. First, you and your group of 8 to 10 people (about $340 each) join chef John Williams in the Ritz kitchen to prepare the customized menu, course by course. The Ritz sommelier selects wines to pair with each course of the lavish dinner, which is served in one of the elaborate private dining rooms of the circa-1740 William Kent House. This former mansion was added to the Ritz property in 2006 and fully restored in its original Italian Renaissance style. After dessert, Chef Williams will join your table for a good-natured critique of your culinary skills. For reservations, contact Tracy Batt in the events department, +44.207.300.2506, tbatt@theritzlondon.com.
