Miramonte Resort offers Destination Dish in Palm Springs

Destination
Hotels & Resorts has launched The Destination Dish, a new culinary program
which showcases the culinary talent of their chefs across the country.

Throughout 2012, 26 chefs from Destination’s distinctive restaurants
will create one signature dish per month, all sharing one common
ingredient, while highlighting the flavors and style of their
individual cuisine.

 The program kicks off in January with kumquats, an edible fruit that
closely resembles an orange and which symbolizes good luck in China and
other Asian countries. The kumquat is widely available through the
United States.


Robert
Nyerick, Executive Chef at The Grove Artisan Kitchen at Miramonte
Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, will prepare Roasted Duck Breast,
Poached White Asparagus and
Kumquat salad.  Known for its “farm to table” fresh seasonal California
cuisine, The Grove Artisan Kitchen’s menu features organic produce,
“home grown” fresh herbs, farm raised meats and poultry, fresh Pacific
seafood, house-made pastas, prime dry-aged meats
and innovative vegetarian fare.

 

“I
was first exposed to kumquats several years back while visiting Hong
Kong during Chinese New Year,” says Nyerick. “The way they were given
out and how they were
cared for in their use made a lasting impression on me. To this day,
whenever is see the Kumquat trees on property beginning to ripen it
takes me back to my time in China and reminds me of the holiday season
to come.”

 

Other
ingredients that will be featured throughout the year include
asparagus, strawberries and corn.  For more information on The
