Cinder House at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis Welcomes Miami’s Executive Chef Aaron Brooks for “A Chef For All Seasons” Dinner in July
Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis announces the program and menu for the next A Chef For All Seasons dinner featuring Executive Chef Aaron Brooks of EDGE, Steak & Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Miami to be held at its Cinder House on Thursday, July 28 and Friday, July 29, 2022. This is the second dinner in the series of three that celebrates the culinary craftsmanship of the Four Seasons brand, which is globally recognized for its exceptional dining options.
Dubbed an Aussie Barbecue With Latin Flavours, the star of the evening will be Chef Brooks’ tomahawk steaks, cooked as they are suspended above two Big Green Eggs on the Cinder House terrace. First seasoned with his EDGE Steak signature rub, Chef Brooks then slow roasts the steaks hanging above the grill to bring out a rich and intense flavour. Lastly, he sears the steaks on the hot grill and then serves them with Peruvian Anticucho sauces.
The evening will begin with passed canapés accompanied by the Cinder House Maracuya cocktail, while guests can opt to head al fresco or a first-hand look at the chefs’ innovative grilling techniques. Dinner will be seated inside the Cinder House dining room with a multi-course menu served family style. Highlights in addition to the Tomahawk Steaks include: local heirloom tomato consommé - confit cherry tomato, compressed cucumber, chia seed, bush basil, coriander oil; BBQ yellow fin tuna loin with black garlic, oyster sauce, aji panca, dried lime, tomari; and, quinoa and roasted corn salad with a meyer lemon vinaigrette.
There will be one seating with cocktails starting 6:00 pm and followed by dinner. This dinner experience is USD 125 per person (plus tax and gratuities) and includes a signature cocktail, canapés and the multi-course dinner. An optional wine pairing is available on request. Seating is limited, reservations are required, and can be made on OpenTable.
