Recent Food & Wine Festival

Postby KarenS » Mon Mar 20, 2006 7:38 am

As reported in Cayman Net News: "It was the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort that played host to the recent food and wine festival, Cayman Classic 2006. In association with the Cayman Classic celebrity chefs Bruce Sherman and Aaron Sanchez, fine wine Sommelier, Joshua Wesson and two of its own chefs, the Resort presented its menu, A ‘Taste of Cayman’ at its beachside restaurant Solana at a gala dinner...The Marriott’s chefs chose to serve a delicious three-pepper crusted tenderloin steak with a sweet plantain, eggplant gateaux, sautéed petit garden vegetables and a Madeira glaze. The wine chosen was a Californian red, the Estancia Meritage 2002. Its black cherry and blueberry flavor perfectly complimented the fiery taste of the tenderloin steak and the sweetness of the fresh spring vegetables. The final turn of the Taste of Cayman combined menu was presented by the former co-host of the Food Network’s Melting Pot, Aaron Sanchez.

Chef Sanchez thrills New Yorkers at his Manhattan restaurants Palador and Centrico with a cooking style that marries Mexican traditions with an American perspective. The Cayman Classic gala dinner ended their feast with one of Aaron Sanchez’s famous signature dishes, the Flan de Coco, served on a bed of tropical fruit salsa. The vanilla, coconut and cinnamon ingredients of the Flan de Coco perfectly complimented the final glass of Taylor’s white port NV.

Solana on Seven Mile Beach is open seven days a week and promises to thrill your senses with the smells of local spices, sounds of the sea, tastes that will inspire and sights of the most breathtaking sunsets on Grand Cayman."

Did anyone go to this event? How was it??
