CHALLENGE THE CHEF

Guests with a magic touch in the kitchen who want to be recognized for their culinary skills can enter Las Ventanas' Challenge the Chef, which was honored with a 2012 Virtuoso Best of the Best Award for Most Innovative Guest Experience. Daring guests prepare an original dish for Executive Chef Fabrice Guisset in the Herb Garden demo kitchen, who then judges their talent by rating it one to three “Spoons.” If the meal is a Three Spoon success, Las Ventanas al Paraíso honors the winner by adding his or her dish to the resort’s acclaimed signature restaurant’s menu for a week – with full credit as the star chef. Even those deemed a “work in progress” come out as winners, receiving a complimentary tequila shot.
