Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel Seattle has teamed up with several of its sister hotels along the West Coast to host a five-chef culinary showdown. The best-of-the-West dinner on November 3 will feature top chefs from Vancouver, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Beverly Hills and Seattle.
This competitive dinner will channel Iron Chef, starting off with an amuse-bouche challenge. Each chef will have 10 minutes to create a dish using surprise ingredients. Throughout the rest of the five-course meal, the chefs will receive other mystery ingredients that they must incorporate into their plates. You can see how the chefs handle these challenges, as the action is broadcast from the kitchen.
Joining executive chef Kerry Sear, the top toque at Four Seasons Seattle’s Art Restaurant, are Ned Bell, who creates seafood-centric, locally sourced dishes at Four-Star YEW Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver; Italian-born Alessandro Cartumini, who brings his European training into his California cuisine at Bella Vista inside Four-Star Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara; Mark Richardson of Five-Star Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco and its new MKT Restaurant – Bar, where his menu includes both contemporary small plates and hearty prime meats; and Gilles Arzur, a French native who’s embraced West Coast ingredients as executive chef of Four-Star Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel).
The Best of the West dinner costs $113.08 (including valet parking). To make a reservation, call the Seattle hotel at 206-749-7070.
