I recently came across a blog entry in the Green Review which reports on a new green wedding package which The Ritz Carlton Hotel, San Francisco (pictured above) has unveiled which they have named “shopping with the chef”.
This stunning hotel which I visited last year, is in the heart of this wonderful city. What a fabulous idea the hotel have had to involve the bride and groom and their wedding planner in a pre wedding shopping trip for local specialities to take advantage of the wonderful variety of regional farm food and seafood which California has to offer. They are hoping that the result will be a “uniquely fresh” and seasonal menu for the wedding breakfast using local produce which has not had to travel a long distance thus saving in fuel and packaging and generally adding to the “green” experience for the wedding. What a wonderful idea. San Francisco has a fabulous choice of farmers markets to visit and in the surrounding areas of California there is a huge choice of local produce and seafood.
If there are any hotels in the Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire areas which we cover for our wedding and events planning we would be pleased to hear about this as we think its a fabulous and appealing idea and we have beautiful produce to offer in our region.
