    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

Wines on Tap Flights allow guests to sample a selection of three Red or three White wines.

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.

This month’s white wine flight features Trefethen Chardonnay, Silvertap Chardonnay and Franciscan Chardannay. The white series is priced at $14.

Trefethen Chardonnay: This Chardonnay highlights tropical and floral aromas with a hint of almond. Light flavors of apple pie and citrus especially that of lemon zest, fill the palate of this rich and well-balanced wine. It has a soft mouthfeel balanced with acidity and a stony minerality which makes this a very food-friendly wine.

Silvertap Chardonnay: Flavors of lemon peel, vanilla extract, honeydew melon and wood spice on the nose. Ripe citrus fruit flavors of grapefruit and nectarine are followed by a hint of lemon cream pie and balanced with a bright acidity that carries through to a crisp clean finish.

Franciscan Chardonnay: Barrel fermented and aged seven months sur lie in small French and American oak barrels, this 100 percent chardonnay wine has the aromas of Meyer lemon, Bartlett pear and crisp apple mingle with hints of vanilla and mineral notes.

The latest red wine flight, which includes Darcie Kent Sauvignon, Saintsbury Pinot Noir and North by Northwest Blend, is available for $18.

Darcie Kent Cabernet Sauvignon: This bold Cabernet is driven by ripe cherries and black olive flavors, with a cedar and tobacco nose. The flavors are rich and packed with soft round tannins and finish that lingers long with tobacco and spicy vanilla notes.

Saintsbury Pinot Noir: Described as “the most romantic of wines,” this wine tends to be of light to medium body with aroma reminiscent of black and/or sour red cherry, raspberry and spice in a vibrant and elegant wine.

North by Northwest Blend (NxNW): This blend of Cabernet and Syrah begins with an aroma of toast, blackberry, mint, tobacco and leather. The flavors are a pleasant balance of cherry, cinnamon, raspberry, smoke and menthol. The mouthfeel is dry and firm with gentle acidity.

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 – 7 p.m. nightly. Plus, at 6 p.m. on Friday evenings, the Resort hosts “An Evening of Scotches,” a tasting event featuring three selections of Scotch. Guests will learn about the differences between the labels, unique aspects of the various whisky regions of Scotland, and various ways to drink Scotch. “An Evening of Scotches” is priced at $45 person and advanced reservations are required. For information or reservations, call 480-624-1202 or email dining@kierlandresort.com.
