I recently had the good fortune to attend the Hyatt’s “Good Taste Series’ at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa Bay. They showcased Hyatt’s culinary talent from throughout Florida and beyond. Each of the 13 chef competitors, (some of the region’s top up-and-coming Hyatt chefs) served up two delectable creations during the 3rd annual Good Taste Series Culinary Competition.
Each chef competitor thoughtfully prepared one plate aligned with Hyatt’s Sustainable Seafood philosophy plus one healthy option dish aligned with Hyatt’s global food philosophy;
Food, Thoughtfully Sourced, Carefully Served
and its three pillars: healthy people, healthy planet and healthy communities.
This was not only some of the most delicious food I’ve eaten but some of the prettiest works of art I’ve seen. It looked and felt like a culinary art show. It’s an annual event and every year the competition gets tougher and tougher. I’ve barely digested this year and I’m already looking forward to 2017.
