Arch Cape Inn and Retreat on the Oregon Coast is pleased to announce the arrival of our new Chef, Noah EunJung Kaufman, who will debut his culinary creations at the Inn beginning February 2010. Kaufman was born in South Korea and adopted by his American parents at an early age. While serving at the award winning 1913 Room in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Kaufman's love for food blossomed and, in the fall of 2003, he enrolled at The Culinary Institute of America. Kaufman graduated in 2007, earning his associates degree in Culinary Arts and receiving a bachelor’s degree in Business Management.
Before joining the Arch Cape Inn, Kaufman worked as the Chef/ Director of Food Operations for the exclusive Balsam Lake Club in the heart of the Catskills in New York. His artfully composed dishes taste as delicious as they look. Chef Kaufman's upcoming Valentine's Day Tasting Menu will include Wild mushroom ravioli with Dungeness crab leg and lemon brown butter; braised pork belly with caramelized apples, frisee salad and cayenne oil, pan roasted duck breast with a root vegetable medley with aceto balsamico, and a "Valentine's Day Kiss" composed of meringue, ganache and raspberry coulis, among other dishes -- all paired with regional wines.
On March 12, as part of Savor Cannon Beach, Chef Kaufman will prepare a special Winemaker's Dinner paired with wines from Oregon's Walnut City Wineworks. Arch Cape Inn and Retreat's kitchen specializes in featuring locally grown produce, locally sourced meats, seafood and cheeses and other sustainable foods spiced with a variety of ethnic flavors from top culinary regions around the world a unique Oregon Slow Food experience.
