This week, we heard about some tantalizing foodie festivals at properties around the world, and here are three of the more intriguing ones, from happening Atlantic City to the bustling by-ways of Seoul, South Korea, to the pristine beaches of Grand Cayman, this fall means fabulous food for all.

Park Hyatt Masters of Food and Wine in Seoul, October 29-November 8
For over 20 years, Park Hyatt has held an annual Masters of Food and Wine festival at one of its properties, and this year, the fun-filled week is heading to the Park Hyatt Seoul. Over the course of a week, chefs and sommeliers from Hyatt’s properties all over the world will host seminars and demonstrations cooking up “gastronomic masterpieces.”

Highlighted participants include Michelin-starred chef Ulf Braunert of the Palace Luzern in Switzerland, the Park Hyatt Seoul’s executive chef, Stefano Di Salvo, and special luncheons and dinners including an “art gallery dinner” at the Gallery Park Ryu Sook. The whole week culminates with a gala dinner featuring the works of the following chefs:

· Daniel Chambon, owner and chef de cuisine of Le Pont de L’Ouysse in France
· Kenchiro Ooe, chef at the Park Hyatt Tokyo
· Sarawut Im-sup, chef de cuisine at the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok’s Tearoom
· Ilhame Guerrah, pastry chef at the Park Hyatt Shanghai
· Hee Seok Seo, sommelier at the Hyatt Regency Incheon
· Chefs Braunert and Di Salvo
Rates at the Park Hyatt Seoul during the festival start at $250 per night.

Tenth Annual Wine Dinner Series at Westin Grand Cayman’s Casa Havana, November 6
The Westin Casuarina Resort and Spa on Grand Cayman Island is hosting one of its wine dinner series on Friday, November 6 at the resort’s Casa Havana restaurant. Guests who plan to attend can stay at the resort that night for just $199.

The rest of the dinners in the upcoming series take place on January 29, March 12, April 16, May 14 and June 11, during which the special rate for dinner-goers will be $299, with no minimum night stays. The only caveat is that guests much purchase seats for the wine dinner before booking the room reservation by calling the hotel directly at (345) 945-3800.

“Savor the Borgata,” Saturday, November 7
Last week, we told you about some incredible dining deals happening this fall at three of the restaurant at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, but in the granddaddy of all dining events—one that’s sure even to get a few rage-filled housewives out of their imitation Versailles villas—is going down on Saturday, November 7.

“Savor the Borgata” is an annual event that gives guests the chance to enjoy food at the resort’s restaurants actually prepared by the rarely in-residence chefs themselves. Who, you might ask, will be attending? Here’s the diet-busting list: Wolfgang Puck (Wolfgang Puck American Grille), Bobby Flay (Bobby Flay Steak), Michael Mina (SeaBlue), Michael Schulson (Izakaya), Stephen Kalt (Fornelletto Cucina and Wine Bar), Geoffrey Zakarian (The Water Club at Borgata), Romeo DiBona (Old Homestead Steakhouse), Ron Ross (Borgata Executive Chef), and Thaddeus DuBois (Borgata Executive Pastry Chef).

The evening begins at 7:00pm that evening at the Water Club, and tickets, which are on sale now, cost $125 per person. Order them here or by calling (866) 900-4849. The one drawback? Rates for that one night at the resort start at a whopping $329, more than double the starting rates for the rest of the month!
