We are so excited to welcome Celebrity Chef Jenn Louis to Miraval at the end of this month (Friday, February 28 & Saturday, March 1). We know that our Miraval guests will be absolutely delighted to learn from this dynamic and accomplished culinary master!

Consistent, simple and purposeful. This is the philosophy and approach that has propelled Chef Jenn Louis to a culinary career spanning nearly two decades. After graduating from Pitzer College in Claremont, CA, Louis traveled throughout Europe and North and South America, settling for a short time in Southern Israel to work on a dairy kibbutz. Upon her return to California, she learned of a job opening from a close friend cooking for an Outward Bound base camp deep in the North Carolina woods.

We are so excited to welcome Celebrity Chef Jason Santos to Miraval this weekend (Friday, November 22 & Saturday, November 23). Chef Santos likes to have fun. You can tell by his trademark blue hair, and more importantly, you can tell by his food. Liquid nitrogen salsa that smolders like a disco when it hits the plate? Check. Orange gel that forms into noodles when it hits hot broth? Got it. Black Truffle Dippin Dots Ice Cream that arrives tableside smoking? Absolutely. His cooking style has been referred to as “Julia Child Meets Willy Wonka”.

And while the presentations of Santos’ dishes are whimsical and inventive, the flavors on his plates are what keep diners coming back for more. Jason’s cuisine seamlessly combines Asian, French and traditional American flavors with dazzling visual and textural twists that wow diners at each of his acclaimed restaurants.

Currently, Jason is the owner and executive chef at both Abby Lane in Boston’s Theater District and Blue Inc. in Boston’s Financial District, a restaurant made famous by Santos’ innovative menu and “smoking cold” milk shakes. Jason is set to open his third restaurant, Back Bay Harry’s in Boston’s South End in late 2013. Santos’ name will also be familiar to foodies. Known as “Jay” on the seventh season of Fox’s hit television show “Hell’s Kitchen”, Santos has been regularly complimented by one of the industry’s toughest critics, Chef Gordon Ramsay.
