THE SPOON - Want to learn how to cook on vacation? Now you can, courtesy of Hestan Cue and Vista Collina Resort.
The guided cooking company recently hooked up with Vista Collina to offer the Cue as an amenity in all 39 of the Napa Valley resort’s suites. The Cues in-room go beyond off the shelf features with a customized flourish for guests of the resort:
“Inside your suite, the Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System, featuring instructional videos by the resort’s own Chef Vincent Lesage, stands ready to bring your ingredients–and Napa Valley dish–to life.”
The concept of offering cooking guidance customized for in-resort guests is interesting one. With the hospitality market facing increased competition from home-share platforms like Airbnb, resorts and hotels are looking for new ways to attract guests. By offering in-room cooking and cooking education with the Cue, resorts can entice guests who see cooking as a relaxation activity.
