Gluten-Free Extravaganza

Posted On June 22nd, 2016

Gluten Free Flour and BreadBeing gluten-free is not just part of a trendy diet. For some who suffer from Celiac’s Disease, it’s serious business. While the gluten-free diet frenzy has risen in popularity over the past couple of months, it’s important to sort out what’s fact and what’s fiction.

We’ve called in two gluten-free experts, Nichole Campo and Jordann Windschauer to help debunk the myths and help those who suffer from Celiac’s Disease or simply follow the Paleo lifestyle. How can foodies still meet their dietary restrictions, yet still excite their senses?

The Story Behind the Knife and Fork Doors Inside Epicurean Hotel

Posted On June 15th, 2016

Epi04If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting, you know that Epicurean Hotel is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced in the past. We welcome all culinary connoisseurs who dare to Awaken Appetites Unknown. In fact, when we first opened our hotel doors in December 2014, we swapped the traditional ribbon cutting for a “steak-cutting ceremony” using an aged strip steak cooked by Executive Chef Chad Johnson in the Epicurean Theatre.

Every corner of the hotel property is unique and holds a story of inspiration.  Most stories pay tribute to the late Bern Laxer, founder of the famed Bern’s Steak House across the street, whose legacy made the culinary inspiration of the Epicurean Hotel come to life. From food and wine inspired art to the antique luggage carts, you’ll find a special seating area right when you walk inside Epicurean’s doors. The library, full of comfortable leather chairs and surrounded by culinary pieces used today in the past, make any culinary connoisseur feel right at home. Sitting there, you’re surrounded by Bern’s personal collection of cookbooks and there’s truly no other place to feel alive and inspired.

doorsThere is one piece of art that’s a staple to the hotel; a one-of-a-kind duo of sorts, the famous 9’ foot tall Shun knife and 6’ fork carving set that’s held up by two rustic barn doors. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and is the only way to appropriately welcome our foodie guests inside the Epicurean Theatre, a 40-seat culinary classroom with amphitheater-style seating and a kitchen for food presentations, cooking classes and epic chef competitions.

Talk about cutting edge.
