Journey into the Ritz-Carlton Culinary Adventures: A Global Guide

Well-traveled foodies have tasted Russia’s best caviar and France’s finest foie gras. Go beyond the traditional culinary epicenters and explore our around-the-world guide to great global delicacies.

There’s a lot to discover in Tucson, which has quietly become a favorite destination of foodies since recently being named a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy. While tacos and other Sonoran specialties are certainly on the menu, the city is also home to a rich culinary legacy that has developed from a culturally layered history, a variety of heritage ingredients and a continuity of traditional techniques. Perhaps the most travel-worthy menu items are the modern dishes made with native ingredients that chefs across the city are dreaming up, like vegetable sopes made from native dent corn masa, and nopales French fries, where cactus pads take the place of potatoes and avocado crema is served instead of ketchup.
