Great Taste Magazine 2013 March April Issue features Chef Seakyeong Kim and culinary news, tips, recommendations and recipes from Orange County restaurant chefs.

Properties overlooking the picturesque Newport Harbor are pricy. Villa Nova in Newport Beach was purchased by Mike Moshayedi, owner of the Newport Beach Joe’s Crab Shack for six million dollars. If you feel like digesting rich desert that captures all five senses of taste (sweet, salty, bitter, savory, and sour) try Salted Sable Citrus Tart with Honey Basil Sauce.

For this issue, Great Taste Magazine has featured Chef Seakyeong Kim andrhubarb as the Produce Pick of the Month. The vegetable has a tantalizing tart flavor and is often used in pies and sauces. Rumiano Organic Mild Cheddar wears the crown of the Cheese Pick of the Month. The semi-soft cheese is aged for six-months and made from pasteurized cultured milk, sea salt, and enzymes.

CEO Robert Ancill of The Next Idea Group believes Atmosphere is critical. Eating out is an entire experience; it’s not just about the food. Restaurant owners should know their staff and implement their employee’s strongest characteristics so businesses can prosper. Offer motivating incentives like good pay and benefits and formulate a strong management team to smooth out problems with staff when necessary.

Fruit can be used for different effects. They offer an array of vibrant and colorful aesthetics and the pertinent fruits mirror the present seasons. Commonly, the key to any great dish is to include the main flavor profiles: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami. Some combinations work and others don’t, but that’s what makes cooking exciting. A memorable dish will maximize results.

Another exciting element is what Chef Charlie Palmer endorses. The restaurant fuses conventional American Cuisine with flavors from Vietnam, Mexico, and other European Countries. This vast selection allows for ideas to cultivate spontaneously. Chef Seakyeong Kim, who has had a prosperous career, agrees that new is ideal. He notes that he gets bored of a dish after a month; therefore new ideas must always be cooking.
