Southern California Meets Caribbean at Cap Maison’s
5th Annual Chef Series
Chef Kurt Metzger of San Diego’s Kitchen 4140 Featured in March
Cap Maison celebrates its popular Guest Chef Series for the fifth year in 2015 with Chef Kurt Metzger of San Diego guest cooking in the kitchen of Cliff at Cap the weekend of Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21, 2015. Cap Maison is offering a Chef Series Weekend Package that includes accommodations and dinners to mark the event.
Chef Kurt Metzger knew from a young age that he was destined to be a chef. Influenced early on by the cookbooks and culinary shows of classic chefs like Julia Child and Nathalie Dupree, the Pasadena, California native moved to New York where he studied at the esteemed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park. He then relocated to San Francisco to open Roxxi’s, a modern American farm-to-table restaurant where he earned tremendous critical acclaim for his innovative French-California cuisine. During a following tenure at Pasadena’s Bistro 45, Metzger’s cooking propelled the restaurant into Nation’s Restaurant News Fine Dining Hall of Fame. Today, Chef Kurt resides in San Diego, Calif. and is owner and executive chef of Kitchen 4140 and his catering companies: Concept Catering by CK and CK’s BBQ Shack. He travels often, finding inspiration in flavorful destinations like Napa Valley, South Africa, Saint Lucia and regions of Europe, and remains committed to creating fresh, sustainable fare that nourishes guests, the community and the earth.
Cap Maison’s Executive Chef, Craig Jones created the Guest Chef Series five years ago as a way to infuse his Cliff at Cap restaurant with new energy and cook alongside culinary colleagues from some of the greatest kitchens around the world.
“By bringing guest chefs to Cap Maison, we keep things fresh and bring new influences to our island restaurant,” says Ross Stevenson, General Manager. “In the end, it’s really a collaboration between Chef Craig Jones and guests like Chef Kurt. And for our guests, it’s an exciting weekend of food and wine in this idyllic Caribbean, seaside setting.”
Executive Chef Craig Jones is a Welsh-born veteran of Europe’s Michelin-starred kitchens who has been at the helm of the resort’s Cliff at Cap restaurant since it opened in 2008. It is one of the island’s top tables with breathtaking panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. Chef Jones serves a French West Indian-inspired contemporary menu based on classical techniques, fresh island products and seafood that has been hailed by The New York Times. Last winter, Chef Jones unveiled a 36-seat thatched-roof beach shack eatery, The Naked Fisherman Beach Bar & Grill, one of the only such beachside restaurants in Saint Lucia. With a soundtrack of crashing surf and vibrant Caribbean music, The Naked Fisherman, set on Cap Maison’s Smuggler’s Cove Beach, offers a barefoot dining alternative for both hotel guests and the public.
