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 (Taste Perfection With Champagne Louis Roederer Cristal. I asked four Lexus Culinary Masters, “Where and what do you like to drink when you’re not working?” Their answers might surprise you.
Chef Chiarello: Aged tequila, tecate when I’m in the vineyard working with the guys. At home with my wife entertaining friends we enjoy champagne. And of course Napa Valley wines – red and white.
Chef Fearing: Shiner Bock beer at the original Sonny Bryan’s in Dallas, Texas – it doesn’t get any better than good beer and great BBQ!
Chef Morimoto: At a karaoke bar I drink shochu.
Chef Symon: Sour beers on my couch.
