Pebble Beach Food & Wine has become one of America’s top culinary festivals, regularly drawing the world’s top chefs to the resort’s rocky beaches. With all the big names, it’s getting harder to stand out, and this year, to make a splash, Lexus assembled the Culinary Masters Team, consisting of Daniel Boulud (Daniel), Michael Chiarello (Bottega), Dean Fearing (Fearing’s), Christopher Kostow (The Restaurant At Meadowood), Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto (Morimoto) and Iron Chef Michael Symon (Lola Bistro). They’re teaming on two different April 29 events: REMIX: A New Spin on Haute Cuisine With Champagne Krug and Taste Perfection With Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal. I asked four Lexus Culinary Masters, “What are your favorite outdoor activities?” Their answers might surprise you.
Chef Chiarello: Road biking – bar none. And playing with my five-year old son around the yard.
Chef Fearing: Power walking with my new pup Walker! He’s a Border Collie and hard to keep up with, but it’s a shame to not be outside with the current Texas weather.
Chef Morimoto: Golf.
Chef Symon: Gardening and riding motorcycles.
