The Grand Tasting Menu: A Dining Experience to Remember

This year marks the centennial year of the National Park Service and we celebrated it at Cress on Oak Creek with a special Grand Tasting Menu. With our proximity to the Grand Canyon (only a two-hour drive to the south-rim) Chef Rochelle Daniel took inspiration from this world wonder and created an exclusive Grand Tasting Menu showcasing the Grand Canyon in her own vision. The Grand Tasting Menu had its debut on two evenings in August. This exceptional tasting menu is just the beginning of many more unique culinary adventures at Cress on Oak Creek. The Grand Tasting Menu truly was a dining experience to remember. We have compiled a selection of images highlighting special dishes of this exclusive dining experience.

The Cress 6-Course Grand Tasting Menu included:

  • Six Courses inspired by the majestic, peaceful and humbling Grand Canyon
  • Each course was prepared by a different L’Auberge Cress chef and each chef worked with a local winery or brewery to pair their courses
  • Each course included locally foraged ingredients from the Grand Canyon state
    • From the Grand Canyon: wild arugula, wood sorrel, garlic mustard
    • From Sedona: apples, peaches, pears, plums, pluots, herbs
