This past week, guests enjoyed the extraordinary culinary talents of Jaime Ortiz of 677 Prime at the exquisite home of Stephen and Rick Cutting-Miller, SkyFall.
Co-hosted by Continuum Wealth Advisors and Columbia Cabinets, the evening began with champagne and welcomes from Evan Levey, Stephen and Jaime.
The kitchen, designed by Justina Auer, one of Columbia Cabinets talented designers, is fitted with Brookhaven cabinetry. The coolness of the natural stone countertops in both the kitchen and pantry is warmed by the soft white pantry cabinets and rich tones of the rift cut oak kitchen cabinets. The result is an inviting sophistication…a perfect synthesis of urban chic situated in bucolic splendor.
The space worked exactly as Stephen and Rick intended. The main kitchen, bookending the magnificent great room, served as an ideal place to gather and, in this case, watch Jaime demonstrate and breakdown the evening’s recipes. The uber functional, separate chef’s pantry was the perfect venue to complete all the prep work, plating and clean-up, adjacent and convenient but out of sight and therefore not distracting.
The menu was a nod to the cooler months headed our way:
SURF and TURF TEMPURA ROLLS with CHILI WASABI AIOLI and SWEET SOY SYRUP
7 HOUR PORK
NY STRIP with TRUFFLE VEAL REDUCTION with TRUFFLED PARM STEAK FRIES and HAZLENUT BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Many thanks to our gracious hosts, Stephen and Rick, and of course to the extraordinarily talented Jaime Ortiz.
