Kurtis Jantz, the Executive Chef at the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, is in search of the last remaining treasured recipe entries for the resorts' first annual "Heirloom Recipes with a Citrus Twist" Mother's Day recipe contest. With the upcoming deadline of April 15th for entry submissions, now's the time to get cooking.

In preparation for for the resorts' much-anticipated annual Mother's Day brunch, Jantz is also sharing a few of his own citrus-inspired recipes, delivering a little taste of the home-grown flavors now available at Trump Miami.

Why the citrus twist?
Chef Jantz has received a tremendous response from guests who have complimented his use of Florida-grown flavors on the menus throughout the, family- friendly, four star resort.

"It's important to incorporate local ingredients grown in our backyards. Florida citrus is so versatile and an ingredient woven throughout our menus. For example, my Orange Blossom Florida Honey Bee Vinaigrette is a beautifully simple recipe that I am sharing. It delivers a fresh splash of Florida to any dish...and it is so easy for anyone to re-create at home." says Jantz.
