From Hotel 1110:
This series will further continue our hotel’s tradition of offering our guests unique, elegant culinary experiences centered around Monterey-area food and wine. Our dinner series will especially focus on locally-sourced sustainable food by featuring meats and vegetables from local suppliers.
We are very fortunate that renowned local artist/photographer Kim Weston has agreed to be our first Artistic Chef for this series. Kim is a 3rd-generation Carmelite artist.
”I have always loved to cook,” shares Kim. “Food and preparation of food for friends, guests and lovers has always been a passion of mine. To share a love of food with friends is the same as sharing my artistic photographs. I am not a photographer only when I have my camera in my hands – I am a photographer every minute of the day, whether it’s cooking, gardening or walking with my wife on the beach.”
Kim adds, “At this first dinner on Wednesday, August 22, I have chosen a menu in honor of my wonderful wife Gina, whose Sicilian grandfather taught me these simple, delicious recipes. His use of wonderful, locally-caught food that was pulled, plucked and gathered from the Monterey Peninsula created meals that were meant to be shared together.” Themes for the remaining nights of the series will be announced soon.
Next Dinner October 31 Halloween!!!
