A New Foodie Feast at Luminaria

Cooking is more than the preparation of food. In Santa Fe cooking is a passion, a celebration of taste, the study of how local ingredients come together to ignite the senses. Cooking is the mastery of techniques, the art of integrating the sciences, and a reinvention of cuisine.

Join us to celebrate the ingredients that allow us to create brilliant dishes to delight and inspire your Santa Fe dining experience. “The Study Of” culinary series features an in-depth exploration of ingredients with the chefs of the Destination Culinary Collection. Throughout the year, we’ll unveil a new gastronomic topic to examine through cooking demonstrations, educational lectures, innovative recipes or sumptuous tastings.

Explore the current featured ingredient below, and dine at Luminaria Restaurant to personally sample new inspired dishes from Chef Brett Sparman. Bon appetit!

The Study of Braising: Keeping it Seasonal
In this segment of the “Study Of” series, we opted to focus not on a specific ingredient, but the age old cooking technique of braising. The Study Of Braising is best demonstrated during the fall and winter months as it evokes feelings of comfort and warmth that mesh beautifully with Santa Fe’s holiday traditions. Braising is a technique that can be implemented across all culinary disciplines. Many food varieties, such as meat, fish and vegetables are invigorated by this technique.

We hope Chef Sparman’s new braising recipes will delight and inspire your palate. Please join us at Luminaria Restaurant now through December to enjoy three new braised dishes, including:

  • Blue Corn Crepe w/  Braised Duck Confit, Chile Colorado, Chipotle Crema
  • Braised Pork Belly w/ Diver Scallops, Chorizo Black Bean Puree and Plantain
  • Braised Boneless Beef Short Ribs w/ Poblano Cheese Grits, Carrots and Pearl Onions, Escabeche

Psst: say the secret word “succulent” and receive a complimentary appetizer when you purchase an entrée.
