St. Simons Island Resort Welcomes New Executive Chef

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Executive Chef John Palacio

The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort and ECHO Oceanside Restaurant are happy to welcome Executive Chef John Palacio to the resort.  Palacio began his culinary career at age 15 at the Red Lion Inn in Omaha, Nebraska. Following 4 years of global assignments with the U.S. Marines, he returned home to follow his dream of becoming a professional in the culinary industry. His training included a 3 year American Culinary Federation apprenticeship at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles which concluded with him being awarded the coveted American Culinary Federation’s  “Apprentice of the Year” in Los Angeles County.

He gained his vast experience by traversing the country in several Westin resorts from Santa Clara to Kansas City to Tuscon to Beverly Hills and even catered to the stars at the Emmy Awards in the late 1980’s. When he is not in the kitchen, Palacio can be found outside in his tomato garden or canning his tomatoes.

“Each day I want to personally meet our guests to let them know I am available to make their visit memorable ~ from a birthday party or wedding reception to their casual dining experience filled with culinary surprises. I am elated with my choice to take the Executive Chef position at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort.”

Hotel Director and General Manager Michael Johnson states, “We are very excited to add someone with so much talent and expertise to our team. We look forward to introducing Chef John Palacio to our community as the overwhelming response to our new food and beverage concept ECHO for dining and catered events continues.”

The Flavors of ECHO Wine Dinner at The King and Prince Resort

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort’s private oceanfront Retreat Dining Room was set for the first chef’s wine dinner of the year. The event featured six exclusive Robert Mondavi wines and Chef Jarret Flake’s marvelously crafted dishes that showcased his culinary talents with a sampling of America’s most classic and treasured wines.

Local islanders and visiting guests gathered excitedly to sip chilled Robert Mondavi Private Selection Chardonnay during a brief reception before being seated for the 5-course feast. Ms. Zavi Bailey, representing Constellation Brands, narrated the Mondavi wines throughout the evening with excellent wine stories, statistics and descriptions. “Balance is the most important part of any good wine” resonated throughout her conversations and guest questions/answers.

Also present to share her wine expertise was Ms. Diane Rousakis, the On-Premise Manager of Wine and Spirits with United Distributors from Savannah. “We are so glad that The King and Prince chose THE iconic American wine producing company of Robert Mondavi. It pairs perfectly with your classic historic hotel.”

One of the most influential and meaningful courses of the evening was the intermezzo. Not your predictable grapefruit, berry or fruity palate freshener ~ but instead a bright red Surprise! It transported the diners from the Mondavi ‘whites’ into the robust ‘reds’ that were to invade the dinner with full-bodied lush. It was a brilliant segue that smoothly transitioned everyone from one style of wine to the next.

Dark Chocolate Dipped Black Cherries

 

When we sipped our final wine, the Robert Mondavi Napa Merlot, it was comforting to know that the two red wines were very carefully chosen for each specific dish. The Cabernet had the structure to stand up to the venison and the full-bodied merlot with its beautiful plumminess had the fruit-forward power to ‘balance’ the dark dipped black cherries.

As the dinner brought people together to enjoy and explore the bonding between fine cuisine and classic wines, everyone acknowledged the complement of both persuasions of the meal ~ drawing attention to the lively, evolving delicious food culture at The King and Prince.

 Our chef will plan more wine dinners throughout the year. For more information about these and other special events, please visit our website.
