Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 03, 2011
The teppanyaki-style of cooking, with its emphasis on the dramatic wielding of razor-sharp instruments of the trade, takes time and a great deal of effort to master. Only after long years of training in proper techniques, as well as refining the requisite skills in choosing and preparing the fresh ingredients used, do the best chefs graduate from mere proficiency to the almost zen-like wizardry that turns a night out for dinner into culinary theater. The JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa is pleased to welcome a recognized master of teppanyaki cuisine, Chef William Siew. Chosen as the new Executive Chef of Shizen Restaurant in the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa, Chef Siew brings over 15 years of fine Asian restaurant experience to his new role.
The upscale yet casual restaurant, located in the Las Vegas family resort, has unveiled an entirely new menu featuring a variety of specialty signature rolls. The restaurant features traditional Japanese/Asian fusion fare with a modern culinary twist.
Shizen, with its teppanyaki cuisine and fantastic sushi, has consistently ranked as one of the best Summerlin Las Vegas restaurants since opening in 2007. Under the new management of JW Marriott, Chef Siew takes things up a notch. His past experience has included some of the most prestigious Asian restaurants in Nevada and Texas, and he is widely known for his expertise in working with fish importers, butchers and produce suppliers to acquire the freshest seafood, choicest cuts of meat, perfectly-ripened vegetables and other ingredients. Not to mention, his legendary skill with the knife and attention to detail ensure a well-trained staff will provide guests with a memorable experience.
Chef Siew is determined to take Shizen Restaurant in bold new directions. “By selecting the freshest fish and ingredients available, we bring our guests world-class sashimi, sushi and teppan cuisine of the highest quality,” Chef Siew said, “and we are creating some unique surprises as well, by combining some traditions with some new ideas.”
In addition, Chef Siew’s deep understanding of the importance of quality ingredients has committed Shizen to following a path of environmentally sound practices. “Quality ingredients equal sustainable ingredients,” he said. “We believe the flavor of our foods to be a natural result of how the different ingredients were produced, how they were harvested,” he added. Chef’s Siew’s position also aligns with that of the new management, as JW Marriott continues to establish more green practices throughout its properties.
