Epicurean Escape Teams Travelers with Award-Winning Chef to Serve Up a Night to Remember at Miramonte Resort & Spa in Palm Springs

Indian Wells, Calif. – October 6, 2010 – Aspiring chefs will draw their inspiration from Chef Robert Nyerick from The Grove Artisan Kitchen when booking the Epicurean Escape at Miramonte Resort & Spa. Chef Nyerick will personally instruct guests on the preparation and cooking techniques for a three-course meal that is custom designed for each couple on this special learning vacation.

Guests booking the Epicurean Escape learning vacation receive one night’s lodging, personal one-on-one instruction for preparing a three-course meal, wine pairing and tutorial, a commemorative Grove apron signed by Chef Nyerick and a framed photo of the couple and Chef after the meal. Cost for the Epicurean Escape is $419 per night, per couple.

After preparing their three-course meal, guests will enjoy the fruits of their labor in the comfortable, contemporary setting of The Grove Artisan Kitchen dining room.

Guests will learn many of Chef Nyerick’s time-honored techniques such as layering flavors of the fresh, quality ingredients including those he picks from Miramonte’s own herb garden and citrus grove. The Grove Artisan Kitchen is located in the midst of the Coachella Valley; one of the most fruitful areas of California offering a bounty of fresh fruits, vegetables and farm-raised beef, poultry and fish. Chef Nyerick will give guests who book this special learning vacation tips for using local ingredients to build a farm-to-table inspired menu.

Named after the citrus and date groves that once flourished years ago on the very land the resort rests upon, Grove Artisan Kitchen celebrates the rich history of the desert, honoring local artisan growers fortunate for the natural waters that made Indian Wells famous.
