We all remember the beloved family recipes that were “made from scratch.”
And the time it took to do so. Of course, these were the best memories—the spaghetti sauce that took hours on the stove to the lemon cake that had few ingredients that somehow just meshed to create deliciousness. Everyone has their own special list and even today recreate these recipes in their own kitchens. The chefs at Ocean Reef are dedicated to “make from scratch” memories for us all to add to our favorites.
Using fresh ingredients and creative cooking skills, they make an enormous amount of our dishes in the restaurant kitchens.
After chatting with Chef Philippe Reynaud, Senior Director of Culinary Operations, I became amazed at what happens behind the scenes and thought this was worth sharing a short sampling with Members.
