Deer Valley Menu Preview

Deer Valley is now open for the winter ski season. The resort is known not only for it's snow, but for its stellar cuisine.  A few weeks ago Utah food writers were invited for a preview of some new items that will be on the menus of the Deer Valley restaurants.  Here are some of them:
Roasted Chicken  Piccata served at Royal Street Cafe. A Coleman brand all-natural chicken breast has a pan sauce of lemon, white wine, capers and dill and is served on a bed of spinach pappardelle with roasted butternut squash.

Tomatillo Crusted Sturgeon Fillet from The Mariposa. The seafood is surrounded with pools of roasted red pepper and black bean sauces and topped with frisee, chayote, local sweet corn and heirloom cherry tomatoes.

Jerk Marinated Grey Snapper is pooled in a  Jamaican coconut "rundown" sauce and topped with little balls of fresh honeydew melon for a nice  ratio of heat and sweet. A yam chip is perched on top.

Milk Chocolate Cremeaux Tart from The Mariposa is polished with salted caramel, yuzu jam and a sesame cracker.

Pomegranate Napoleon from Seafood Buffet has layers of mascarpone mousse that uses Utah-produced Slide Ridge honey. One pomegranate seed was encased in a hot candy syrup that hardened into a crystalline effect.
