    Nellie Cashman’s Monday Club Café: A Modern Take on Mining Camp Cuisine

Nellie Cashman’s Monday Club Café: A Modern Take on Mining Camp Cuisine

Named for “The Angel of the Mining Camp” and Arizona’s oldest club for women, Nellie Cashman’s Monday Club Café continues the Resort’s tradition of preserving the essence of Arizona with a newly updated menu.

Using many locally sourced ingredients that have been staples of Arizona cuisine since its inception as a territory, this inventive menu presents a modern take on the culinary trends made popular when often rough-and-tumble boom towns such as Tombstone, Jerome, Bisbee and Globe sprang to life in Arizona’s silver-rich hills and valleys.

Especially popular are the new menu’s Asian-inspired dishes offer a nod to the hundreds of Chinese laborers who came to work in new railroad and mining towns in the late 1870s. The Dutch Oven specials harken to the days when the great cattle drives crossed the American West in the mid-19th Century and barbecue, another staple of early Arizona cowboy cuisine, also features prominently. Locally grown chili peppers have always offered the region’s cooks a wide range of flavors and they take pride of place here, bringing an ever-popular South-of-the-border flair to Arizona cuisine.

Nellie Cashman’s is open daily from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm The ever-popular Bubbles & Brunch is served from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Sundays. For information or reservations, call 480-624-1202 or email dining@kierlandresort.com.

    The Rim Bar Launches Its New “Wines on Tap” Wine Flight Series

The Rim Bar Launches Its New “Wines on Tap” Wine Flight Series

On Friday evenings throughout May, The Rim Bar will host complimentary tastings of two popular Wine on Tap offerings – the red and white blends from Niner Wine Estates.  Join us from 5 to 7 p.m. every Friday for the tasting and to learn about this Paso Robles, California winery.

Unlike the process of serving wine from a bottle, wines on tap are not exposed to oxidation until the moment they are served, which ensures their quality and keeps their flavor as the vintner intended. In addition to reducing waste and carbon footprint created by serving in individual wine bottles, each of the Rim Bar’s Wines on Tap wines is produced by a winemaker who practices biodynamic, sustainable or organic procedures in their production methods.

Niner Wine Estates proprietors, Richard and Pam Niner, believe that a blend of exceptional people, vineyards, tools, and ideas is the key to creating world-class wines and providing a unique wine country experience. Founded in 2001, Niner Wine Estates is dedicated to producing estate-grown wines from the premier wine-growing regions of Paso Robles and Edna Valley.

The Niner Wine Estates wines, and all of our Wine on Tap selections, also are available at The Rim from 4 to 1 a.m. nightly.

The Scotch Library Now Open

Continuing its celebration of the important contributions that Scottish immigrants made to early Arizona, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa has launched The Scotch Library, which provides both aficionados and those new to Scotch with the opportunity to select from more than 130 different labels.

The impressive collection features more than 100 single malts and 25 blends imported from all six whisky regions of Scotland (Speyside, Highland, Islay, Islands, Lowland and Campbeltown) and representing nearly half of the distilleries in Scotland today. Vintages in the Scotch Library range from 10-year-old Scotch to Scotch that is more than 30 years old.

Assisting guests with selections are Scotch Library Ambassadors, who are experts in the area of single malt and blend whiskies from Scotland. Not only are the Ambassadors passionate Scotch consumers themselves, but they have received extensive training to prepare them for their role as ambassadors. Served in two-ounce pours, the offerings are priced from $10 per serving to $475 per serving for the Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute, a limited edition ultra-premium blend from Pernod Ricard that is named for the 62 gun salute fired for royal anniversaries.

The Scotch Library is open from 5 – 9 p.m. nightly.
