I knew I was excited to go to the Travel and Leisure Global Bazaar. But I was just too dumb to know how excited I should have been. If you haven’t been to this event before, you might not know how excited you should have been about this event, either. This pictorial essay should help you discover why you should run, not walk, to buy tickets to this event next year. I know I will.
Oh yeah, and Iron Chef Morimoto prepared and then served it to me himself. I didn’t pee my pants from excitement, but I came close.
I iced my own cupcakes with Celebrity Cruises and learned all about their new push to make cruise ship dining the hippest thing since sliced bread.
I muddled my own mojito at the Patron Tequila station…
followed by caviar and champagne, courtesy of Seabourn Cruises. I never thought much about cruising before, but after this event, I really feel like I am missing something.
Sweet butternut squash soup topped with a syringe full of chunky applesauce and crisp pork belly. Sweet, savory, and just a touch molecular. You can get food like this at the Marriott in Fort Lauderdale…who woulda thunk it?!
Guacamole and chips from Mexico. The Mexican avocados that they used were so much infinitely more delicious than the hard East Coast avocados we are used to. Rich, buttery, smooth…they totally elevated the guac.
This post didn’t even cover the indoor zipline or the shopping you could do, including beautful jwelry from Morocco and wraps from Jamaica. It didn’t discuss the great Indian dancing, the cool black-lit Belize room, or the positively electric live music. But it did, hopefully, convince you to buy some tickets next year. The food and drinks alone are worth the ticket price for a night – I had champagne, tequila, sodas, lobster, burrata, crab, and more. You will have an exciting, fun, and totaly delicious night. There is simply no better way to travel the world without taking your passport.
