March 2014 Recipe of the Month
This month's recipe of Coconut Lime Bars is featured in Sweet & Savory Cooking, Miraval's newest cookbook created by Executive Chef Justin Cline Macy and Pastry Chef Kim Macy. These citrusy bars are the perfect way to welcome the warmer weather!
"Everybody loves this kind of slightly fancy bar cookie, especially my version with fresh lime juice and lime zest—although, the classic lemon version is pretty great, too. These are easy to make—just press the crust into the pan—but they’re delectable enough to serve as a dessert for guests or to bring to a cookie swap. I use coconut oil instead of butter in the crust, which has a wonderful flavor and no cholesterol. You can add toasted coconut to the top for garnish if desired." - Pastry Chef Kim Macy
We were so excited to have Chef Jenn Louis at Miraval this past weekend as part of our Celebrity Chef Series! Chef Louis led participants through a gourmet, five-course meal during two Cooking Demonstration Dinners (see menu). Here are some of our favorite photos of Chef Louis working with Executive Chef Justin Macy and the rest of the Miraval culinary team. Enjoy!

So indulge and reap the benefits of this scrumptious snack (in moderation, of course!).

These recipes capture the true flavor of your favorite desserts using healthier ingredients than traditional recipes.
These three recipes are some of our chocolate-lovers' favorites!
