We have started a new menu here at the hotel with some major changes to our menu format. We have cut our menu by 40% changing most of what we have done in the past. Our tasting menu will now be offered for 2 weeks instead of one and we will now offer it 4 days a week Wednesday through Saturday. With a smaller menu you can produce better plate presentations. Our new chef is all about quality, a trait I admire. We have no more mixed greens rather a array of baby greens to garnish plates. All of our tomatoes are heirloom giving lots of color and flavor to salads. With new ingredients and some molecular technology, I am very excited about this menu.Here is a list of some of our dishes:
Lump crab cake, avocado relish, salt water bubbles
I am back after a very nice vacation. It will be a very busy couple of weeks for me. We are changing all menus right now including room service. Someday I will have time to get caught up on some post and get some of the pile of recipes I have on the blog. I will have some exciting news coming up pretty soon.
Grilled baby leeks Chicken cigar, edamame hummus, red pepper pipette
Apple wood bacon powder Blue cheese-apple-walnut terrine, baby iceberg, smoked grapes
I am repeating the crepe course for a photo shoot we have for Denver magazine on Friday. We will run this menu for the next 2 weeks, I will be taking next week off. We have a few concerts planned along with some rafting and some quality time with the kids.
I sure needed the last couple of days off. You really don't know what you are capable of doing until you are right in the middle of it. We have a lot of people out the last couple of weeks. I found myself running a omelet station in a banquet room at 6 am one morning. I have not worked omelets for awhile, my first couple really sucked. I will have to schedule my self for a few more breakfast shift to get the skills back.
