We are so excited to welcome Celebrity Chef John Cox to Miraval this weekend (Friday, October 18 & Saturday, October 19). John Cox is the executive chef at the highly acclaimed Sierra Mar restaurant at Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California. Offering an unconventional fine dining experience inviting guests to indulge in an exploration of food and wine, Chef Cox presents inquisitive food creations featuring ingredients highlighted by a sense of place and culture.

Chef Cox’s start in July 2012 marked a return to Sierra Mar, where he began his professional career in 2001, rising to the position of chef de cuisine. He joined Post Ranch Inn from his position as executive chef at La Bicyclette and Casanova restaurants in nearby Carmel, where he initiated dynamic, daily changing menus focused around locally sourced ingredients. The new concept and menus earned recognition as some of the finest in Carmel from publications including San Francisco Chronicle and Food & Wine Magazine.

We are so excited to welcome Celebrity Chef Mindy Segal at Miraval this weekend (Friday, September 13 & Saturday, September 14). When it comes to pastry, Mindy Segal is right at home. With 20 years of crafting sweets under her belt, Segal combines her innate instinct for flavor combinations with her commitment to seasonal, local, and sustainable products. The result is desserts that are truly American; each creation is rooted in time-honored nostalgia, executed with a focus on quality, and innovative from just the right touch of contemporary twist.

Chef Segal has clocked time at some of the most esteemed kitchens in the country. After earning her culinary degree at Chicago's Kendall College, Segal landed the pastry assistant post at Ambria working under Chef Judy Contino, whom Segal credits as her biggest influence. She then moved on to refine her craft in the iconic kitchens of Spago, Gordon, and Charlie Trotter's, before eventually helping Chef Michael Kornick launch his successful River North eatery, mk the restaurant. As mk's head pastry chef, Segal developed a loyal following for her desserts like One Banana Two Banana and Cake-n-Shake, while earning her numerous accolades from local and national media.

A native Texan, Chef Rather makes the most of her Lone Star state’s varied traditions, whether looking to the kitchens of Texas' Mexican and German immigrants or to the cowboy culture of her own forebears. Best of all, her recipes aren't fussy—one of her best–selling cakes stirs together in a single saucepan. Add in a cupful of Texas attitude and her made–from–scratch–with–love philosophy and you've got an irresistible taste of American baking.
