Golf Kitchen, Chef’s Garden & Domaine de la Rivière Wines: Delicious Synergies and 3 Recipes
On Wednesday, May 20, 2020, the third one-of-a kind recipe—this one being a trio of recipes created by Executive Chef Michael Ruggiero of GlenArbor Golf Club in New York—will be released. This is part of Golf Kitchen Magazine’s Private Golf and Country Club initiative, Swing Into Action, that is supporting The Chef’s Garden through today’s challenging times.
The exclusive Golf Kitchen family of Private Golf and Country Clubs with their Executive Chefs are collaborating over the coming weeks to support The Chef’s Garden by bringing their superior product—used by the finest restaurants and Michelin Star chefs—to the tables of your members, residents, and guests.
For this initiative, a different private country club chef in the Golf Kitchen family is curating a Golf Kitchen Chef’s Garden plant-based dinner box, complete with recipe and fine plating instructions for you to create that magical fine dining experience in your home.
“Working with The Chef’s Garden ingredients is a true pleasure,” Chef Ruggiero shares. “When you work with the best ingredients that have clean, crisp, flavors as Mother Nature intended, you only need to accentuate, and a dedicated chef of his craft enjoys letting the food speak for itself. No doubt Farmer Lee has tapped a personal relationship with the Earth!”
Although each recipe is deliciously unique, they all have one thing in common: they’ve been
inspired by The Chef’s Garden vegetables that have been regeneratively farmed in harmony with Mother Nature for the maximum in nutrient-rich flavor.
The farm’s vegetables are hand harvested, picked to order, and shipped overnight to ensure that you receive the freshest, most vibrant, and flavorful produce available. This is the farm’s efficiently shipped Earth to Table® promise that ensures ultimate freshness, incredible flavor, and prolonged shelf-life.
“From our farm to your table,” says Lee Jones of The Chef’s Garden. “We are all in this together.” Jones greatly appreciates Golf Kitchen and Domaine de la Rivière Wines, adding that “This collaboration shows how connected we all are to one another and how, together, we can use our talents to make a difference in the world as we navigate challenging times.”
“During these challenging times,” continues Golf Kitchen Producer Diana DeLucia, “your club’s members, residents, guests, staff and their families need the highest possible nutrition to help boost immunity. With my background in both the fine dining industry and the finest of Private Golf and Country Club culinary teams, I know all too well how important nutrition is in this current climate. These recipes will be paired with a carefully selected wine by Domaine Riviera. “I am pleased to announce this partnership with Domain de la Riviere in Sonoma County in this collaboration,” DeLucia adds. “Marla Bedrosian has personally prepared some wine selections that will pair well with our Chef’s recipes for your further enjoyment.”
Domaine de la Rivière Wines is a limited production winery from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma County. When approached with this collaboration, Vintner Marla Bedrosian never hesitated. “One of our goals,” she said, “has been to have our wines connect the dots between family and friends. When Diana DeLucia with Golf Kitchen approached us about partnering to help The Chef’s Garden during this unprecedented time, we immediately joined her team. The opportunity to connect golf club members to their own community by sharing our handcrafted wines paired with their own Chef’s recipes spoke to us in volumes. We are thrilled to work with the team at Golf Kitchen, The Chef’s Garden, and the individual Golf Club Chefs in creating a sense of community at a moment in time where we are all separated.”
