I guess my mind is on one thing these days... eating. My New Year's resolution (and last year's, and the year before) is to watch my eating habits (I know my habits, do I really need to watch them?). But my job puts me in front of food, incredible food. Yesterday was viewing Felicity's wedding cakes on my computer screen, but today was amazing. Executive Chef Steve Lutz and "culinary artist" Ben Hinner spent the afternoon preparing EVERYTHING on Rosario Resort's Mansion Dining Menu and Moran Lounge Menu so we could photograph them for the kitchen's plating guide.
First, let me say that the resort's kitchen staff are unsung heroes. This is a department that is open before dawn and late into the night, 365 days a year. Here are Chef Steve Lutz and Ben Hinner at work:
The result you ask? Here are two of the resort's specialties:
Certified all natural Angus Filet, lightly marinated and cooked to your liking.
Crisp Yukon Rosti, Garlic Steamed Broccolini and Classic Cabernet Reduction.
Wild King Salmon
Pan Seared Wild Alaskan Salmon, Reduction of Aged White Balsamic,
Portobello-Cannellini Hash with Sweet Potato Hay.
