Monday Mise en Place: Dos Caminos Hops on the Cooking Class Train

Dos Caminos

Dos Caminos

I don’t know if it is a new trend among restaurants in town or if it is just new to me as I’m now (thankfully) getting bombarded with press releases from our lovely PR Firm tasters, but Dos Caminos at the Palazzo resort is the latest to hop on the Cooking Class Train. Celebrating Dos Caminos’ dos-year anniversary (that’s as multi-lingual as we get), Guest Master Mixologist Eben Klemm, Corporate Executive Chef Scott Lindquist and Executive Chef of the Las Vegas location, Roberto Hernandez will demonstrate creative cocktails, tasty bocaditos (small plates) and delish desserts.  The classes will be held on Saturday March 13 and Sunday March 14 from 11:30am-2:30pm at Dos Caminos in the Palazzo. The cost is $65 and you can call (702) 577-9550 to reserve a spot or to get more information.

Origin India's Kuldeep Singh and Raja Majid at Whole Foods

Hot off the heels of his Beard House debut, Chef Kuldeep Singh along with CEO, Raja Majid, of Origin India were cooking up some delicious Chicken Tikka at the Whole Foods Market in The District at Green Valley Ranch this past Saturday for a tasting / demonstration.  Chef Singh and partner in crime Raja both said the Beard House event was a big success, and lucky for us, I was told that they are adding the beautiful Vermicelli Panna Cotta with Alphonso Mango Jelly that was such a big hit in New York to the restaurant’s dessert menu here.  Congratulations again to Chef Singh for the honor of being able to showcase his talents at the James Beard House, he certainly deserves it!

Always dedicated to planetary responsibility, the Batali Bastianich Hospitality Group will be holding three viewings of The End of the Line, a documentary about the devastating effects of over fishing. Two of the showings will be for Batali / Bastianich staff only and a midnight on March 10 showing in the private dining room of Carnevino will be for Press and all Industry Professionals.  Kudos to Mario and Joe for bringing in such an important film to help their staff understand the global impact of what is on the plate!
