Join Tulalip Resort Casino Chefs during their Luscious Caramel Dining Event this April and May Here’s What Happens When Caramel Goes Savory
Ask any of the Tulalip Resort Casino chefs why cooking with gooey, creamy caramel isn’t just for desserts and they will share why these savory caramel ingredients are also excellent in any dish. There’s something about it – the color, the smell, the taste and the texture that just gets everyone excited and happy. Guests can enjoy the many Luscious Caramel dishes at any of Resort’s dining venues April 1 through May 31, 2019.
“I asked my chef team to do an exploratory caramel odyssey to stretch their culinary mind on how to turn this favorite American confection into a balanced and tangy culinary experience for our guests. The chef team didn’t hold back! They embraced the sweet, toasty, buttery flavors and balanced it with a variety of savory ingredients to create their one-of-a-kind caramel masterpieces,” shares Executive Chef Perry Mascitti.
Here’s a sample of the decadence to come this spring at Tulalip Resort Casino. And hurry because these Luscious Caramel creations are offered for a limited time.
Blackfish Wild Salmon Grill & Bar‘s Pork Belly with Savory Caramel is topped with a lightly spiced caramel-whiskey sauce accompanied by a fresh apple and orange laced Kimchi. Dinner guests can end their meal on a sweet note with Pastry Chef Nikol Nakamura’s Coffee Caramel Sundae loaded with vanilla bean ice cream, candied pecans, chocolate ganache, and topped with whipped cream and caramel shards.
Tula Bene Pastaria + Chophouse is featuring their local Cherry Wood Grilled Spring Lamb Chops with an Antica Vermouth balsamic caramel, English peas, roasted crimini and saffron.
