PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Ramada by Wyndham has teamed up with Grammy-nominated musician and Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Kelis, for the launch of its new video series called Sample the World with Ramada. The series will take its viewers on a global-inspired culinary journey across North America, spotlighting a diverse array of restaurants celebrated for both their culture and cuisine.
The series looks at five distinct restaurants, each near a Ramada hotel. From modern Indian at Bibi Ji in Santa Barbara, Calif. to classic Jamaican at Pimento Jamaican Kitchen in Minneapolis, Minn., travellers can embark on various culinary experiences. Additional restaurants will be featured in the coming weeks.
“As travellers dream about one day returning to their favourite trips abroad, we want to let them know they can still discover the flavours of amazing global destinations, right here at home, when they stay with Ramada,” says Stephanie Kendrick, brand leader at Ramada by Wyndham. “Sample the World not only celebrates the rich culinary treasures around North America, but serves to help our guests unlock a taste of world-class cities coast-to-coast.”
“My love for authentic flavours drives me in the kitchen and of course in my travels, which is why I love this campaign. It’s all about connecting travellers to the world through one of the greatest joys in life — food,” says Kelis. “The series is inspired by the amazing chefs and restaurant owners who are cooking up flavours of different cultures in their local communities.”
