Spiced up Sundays: culinary demonstrations

Jennifer Gersbach

Still looking for a way to make your Sundays sizzle? Then head up to Beaver Creek and treat your taste buds to a little something hot. The inaugural Beaver Creek Culinary Demo Series started two weeks ago, and continues throughout the summer on Sundays. The public is invited.

Chef Marshall Blanchard of the Golden Eagle Inn will work his magic at a special Bon Appetit Kitchen set up in the Plaza; he will be preparing ginger-crusted salmon with roasted pineapple fried rice, topped with a mango beurre-blanc, a base sauce made of white wine and butter. It’s a sauce that he calls the “mother sauce.”

“It is a good sauce to teach and one that can be used as the base for a lot of dishes,” he said. “One that can go with anything.”

The success of previous culinary events in Beaver Creek proves they know food, and paired with a mild summer evening and high caliber chefs, it’s a winning combination.

“The series is real relaxed and open to people wanting to join in the fun,” said Michelle Wilson of the Beaver Creek Resort Company. “It is a great way for people to spend the evening.”

And with only one demo per week she also said people really want to see more.

Chef Blanchard and the Golden Eagle will offer smaller sample portions of the food for all the guests to enjoy. It will be an open, easy-going occasion and with plenty of time and space for questions; the demo is interactive. There will be a drawing during the hour-long showing for culinary merchandise. The demo will begin at 5 p.m. and seating is available. For more information contact the Beaver Creek Resort Information Center at 845-9090.
