Palm Springs Chef, Robert Nyerick, helps you create a memorable Father's Day for Dad from an original Miramonte recipe

Posted by Ashleigh Tripp  |  June 08, 2011

Miramonte's Executive Chef, Robert Nyerick, has been busy in the Grove Artisan Kitchen developing a simple and easy recipe for you to re-create in your kitchen at home for Father's Day.

Wow your Dad with a special homemade dinner of Pan Seared Jumbo Scallops with Oven Tomatoes, Baby Artichokes and a Saffron Essence. Watch as Chef Robert takes you, step-by-step, through the process. Your Dad will be much happier with an excellent meal, than some plaid tie! And if you're feeling like you don't want to cook, then head over to Grove Artisan Kitchen and treat Dad to a special meal in our beautiful dining room. 

Dads love gifts that come from heart. If you need some more inspiration for what to do for the most influential man in your life, check out these inexpensive and creative gift ideas from Etsy. Here's the link:
