JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa Chef Competes in Food Network Show

JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa Chef Competes in Food Network Show

Las Vegas luxury resort cheered on talented pastry chef Joel Gonzalez as he competed on the Jan. 13 episode of “Sugar Dome”

Three teams enter and only one leaves! That’s the premise of the new Food Network program “Sugar Dome,” which invites cake makers, sugar specialists and master craftspeople to create uniquely themed dessert displays. For its latest episode, Food Network invited JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa’s Chef Joel Gonzalez to create a unique 1980’s-themed sugar display.

Chef Joel GonzalezWhile he can typically be found working behind the scenes at the Las Vegas luxury resort’s restaurants, Gonzalez stole the limelight during the Jan. 13 episode of “Sugar Dome.” A member of the team Sugar Defying Logic, Gonzalez represented the Las Vegas resort proudly and received special commendation from the judges for his dessert tasting sample, a coconut rice panna cotta with lime gelée. “It was a great experience that made me a better chef,” said Chef Joel.

“Masterful sugar work,” one judge remarked after judging Gonzalez’s sugar display entry.

Although his team took second place in the competition, Gonzalez made the Las Vegas luxury resort proud with his attention to detail, flavorful offerings and creative thinking. Guests interested in trying Gonzalez’s creation in person can tempt their taste buds with a special variation of the dessert he created for the show during February’s First Sunday Jazz Bruch at the on-site Ceres Restaurant on Feb. 3.

For travelers who can’t make this month’s brunch, Ceres holds a special brunch on the first Sunday of every month. The special event, which combines delicious dishes from the Las Vegas resort’s restaurant and live jazz music from saxophonist Vince Preiter and guitar accompanist, starts at just $18.95. Guests will dine on made-to-order favorites, including omelets and waffles, as well as bagels and lox, pastries, hash browns, sausage, bacon and more.

Food Network’s show “Sugar Dome” invites three teams each episode to compete for a $15,000 grand prize. During the course of the show, teams are given three unique twists to challenge their skills and adaptability. The show, which currently airs on Sundays at 1pm/12c, is hosted by award-winning TV host David Bull and features distinguished pastry chef and cake designer Paulette Goto and acclaimed pastry chef Pichet Ong as regular judges. Actress Charlene Tilton of “Dallas” stardom served as the special guest judge on the episode that featured Gonzalez.

Gonzalez is capable of handling any culinary challenge thanks to his time with the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort. In addition to the Food Network competition, Chef Joel has also competed in the 2011 US Pastry Competition in New York City, the 2012 National Pastry Competition at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, AZ, and plans to compete in the 2013 American Culinary Federation Competition in March at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Those interested in sampling his culinary work firsthand should reserve a stay at the Las Vegas luxury resort today. The resort features nine dining options spanning a wide variety of cuisine including Mediterranean, Italian, American and Japanese.

LAVO first debuted in 2008 at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, and two years later expanded with a New York City location.

 

Now taking a cue from the Manhattan outpost, Lavo Las Vegas will be bringing the famed Saturday brunch to the Strip with gold painted dancers, mysterious costumed hosts surfing  the crowd, confetti showers, a mimosa bar, and high energy staff and entertainment to keep the party going all afternoon.  Launching October 15, LAVO Saturdays will prove that in this 24-hour city the sun doesn’t have to go down for the party to start.

 

Corks will be popping with more than fifteen types of Champagne including a variety of large format bottles ranging from Magnums and Jeroboams all the way up to Nebuchadnezzars and 30 liter bottles that will no doubt keep the party going.  Brunchers can also enjoy a menu of signature cocktail “remedies,” perfect for the day after a big night.

 

Brunch specialties include the White Polenta Pancakes topped with toasted hazelnuts and wildflower honey apricot jam, Lemon Ricotta Waffles with glazed apples, dark raisins and whipped yogurt and the Seafood Plateau, a smorgasbord of fresh seafood, including jumbo shrimp, oysters and little neck clams, to share, available in piccolo and grande. Those looking for heartier options can indulge in Parmigiano Classico with eggplant, chicken or veal, Spaghetti with Kobe Meatballs or a 14 ounce dry-aged New York Strip Steak with truffle sauce and spicy fries.

 

The LAVO Champagne Brunch will be offered each Saturday from 2 pm to 6 pm.  For Saturday brunch and bottle service reservations call 702.791.1818 or brunch@lavolv.com.
