Travellers searching for the best food in the world, should consider a trip to Arizona after chef Corey Shoemaker earned the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association's Culinary Excellence Award.
The IFWTWA recognises the best of the best when it comes to culinary achievement around the world.
Shoemaker, who works as a chef at Mii amo Spa in Sedona, is said to employ a ‘spontaneous and open-minded approach to cooking, elevating fresh seasonal ingredients with his exciting new menu items.’
Dishes on the menu include Chicken spanakopita, Colorado lamb rack, Asian barbeque duck served with sautéed vegetable slaw and scallion pancakes and Sea scallops with black rice, edamame bean, seaweed, soy and ginger.
If that’s got your tastebuds tingling, a spa break at the resort starts from $1,990, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Mii amo café, where Shoemaker shares his recipes with regular cooking demonstrations.
Maralyn Hill, IFWTWA President said: “As a winner of an IFWTWA Excellence Award, Chef Shoemaker demonstrates the professional standards that represent the best in his industry. He and other professionals in his class set – and raise – the bar in the culinary field worldwide.”
