Carmel Valley, CA (Vocus) November 25, 2010 -- Chef Cal Stamenov will be hosting his indulgent 14th Annual Truffle Dinner in Marinus Restaurant to celebrate the Arrival of Truffle Season
MENU / DETAILS:
Chef Cal Stamenov is the creator of the award-winning California Natural cuisine at Bernardus Lodge’s signature restaurant Marinus. Cal’s philosophy is built on the superiority of handcrafted, artisanal products and the common sense of glorifying food when its flavor is at its peak. He describes this principle as, “If your eyes are closed, you should know what you are eating.” Cal looks forward to the parade of products that become available throughout the year, each in its turn with its moment of glory. To celebrate the long anticipated arrival of truffle season, Cal hosts an evening of culinary magnitude and allows his inspiration to combine the local ingredients from the Central Coast with the rare diamonds of Italy & France.
Chef Cal Stamenov will be welcoming a special Guest Chef to join him during the event.
Past Truffle Dinner guest chefs include; David Kinch of Manresa in Los Gatos; Traci Des Jardin of Jardinière in San Francisco Nancy Oakes & Pamela Mazzola of Boulevard Restaurant, San Francisco; Hiro Sone & Lissa Doumani of Terra, Yountville; and Douglas Keane of Cyrus, Healdsburg.
