THE ART OF GUACAMOLE
When it comes to guacamole, The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas believes “strongly in the classic flavors.” Each evening at six, the hotel Guacamologist™ hosts what is now a guest favorite, a ritual celebrating the flavors and sense of community synonymous with Texas.
Held in the candle-lit lobby, the nightly experience invites guests to sample hand-blended guacamole, created with fresh, local ingredients and accompanied by warm, crisp tortilla chips. A sample of chef Dean Fearing’s signature margarita and tastings from the hotel’s Tequila Vault are included. Guacamologists™ spend time perfecting their technique, which they teach to guests of all ages.
