An Evening with Jaime Ortiz

What an extraordinary evening earlier this month! The Kuhn family graciously opened their fantastic kitchen and beautiful home to Columbia Cabinets, friends and Jaime Ortiz, corporate executive chef of Mazzone Hospitality who demonstrated/cooked a magnificent, scrumptious meal!



Senior Designer Amy Van Wie had recently finished a multi-room project for the Kuhn’s when she, and our special events coordinator Michele Weiser, thought it would be a great idea to ask Shannon and Jim if they would be willing to host a cooking event in their spectacular kitchen. The rest, as they say, is history.

Evan Levey greeted everyone and turned the evening over to Jaime who was amazing. Funny, entertaining, informative, organized…an absolute perfect instructor chef! Friends gathered around the island to watch, learn and enjoy!



The menu was a celebration of summer:

Edamame Dumplings with a Riesling Broth

Diver Seared Scallops with a Fennel, Arugula, Orange Salad with Cauliflower Puree

Seasoned Filet Mignon, Heirloom Tomatoes with a Pebre Sauce, and Fingerling Potato Hash with Veal Glaze





Thank you Shannon and Jim, and of course Jaime, for such a memorable evening.
