Sidecut Celebrates an Amazing Year of Rubbing Our Guests the Right Way

Sidecut has delivered on its promise to deliver “steak with an edge” since launching the new concept just over a year ago.  Using the top two percent of Canadian Prime Beef and searing in the perfect flavour with the 1800-degree infrared grill are two of the three essential elements to its success.  The third, to which Sidecut has enjoyed an overwhelming response, are the fun and delicious rubs and sauces!

Sidecut has built a loyal following for their vibrant offering of seasonings and sauces allowing diners to customize their steaks, meats and seafood EXACTLY, the way they LOVE them.  In addition to the six rubs and sauces that have been making waves on the menu since opening day, Executive Chef Scott Dolbee is about to introduce eleven new rubs and eight new sauces to invite the ultimate in customized flavours.

While the new sauces will replace the existing ones, the new rubs are in addition to the “original six” that will remain on the menu.  Each with their own personality and unique flavour profile, Sidecut’s rubs and sauces elevate the dining experience to a whole new level.

“Everyone has a flavour profile (or three) that they absolutely adore, that just hits the mark and totally ‘makes’ their dining experience,” offers Chef Dolbee.  “In creating this inclusive new offering of rubs and sauces there should now be the perfect flavour profile for almost everyone.”

The new rubs represent all kinds of flavours, from simple to complex, local to exotic, smoky to spicy.  Guests will have to come in and taste for themselves to find their new favourites.  The new line up of rubs are called #7,  Bling, Makers Mark,  Coco Mole, Category 5, Dirty,  Seaside Mix, Rising Sun, Smokin’ and Wild Turkey.The new line up of sauces are called CFB, Yuzu Wisely, Cha-Cha – Smoked Tomato Relish,  E Steak Sauce 2,  Green Wasabi D-40,  Red Herron,  S/T/S Wildcat .  

“Sidecut is what every steakhouse wants to be when it grows up,” says Four Seasons Resort Whistler General Manager, Mark Herron.  “The best meat available, absolute state-of-the-art technology to ensure the perfect preparation, amazing and intense falvours, an innovative and passionate culinary team, great cocktails, a killer wine list and a gorgeous, vibrant dining room.  What more is there?”

Speaking of wine, Restaurant Manager and Sommelier David Foran believes every wine should tell a story. With this in mind selections are based on what he calls the 4P’s – personality, purpose, pedigree and provenance.  Foran is always ready to talk wine; bend his ear over a bottle or take advantage of the entire list that is available by the glass (with a 2 glass minimum).

With freshness, quality and sustainability in mind, Sidecut integrates Pacific Northwest ingredients and local produce, including a variety of vegetables from the Resort’s own 2,700-square-foot rooftop garden and the nearby agricultural community of Pemberton.

Four Seasons Whistler – GPS Treasure Hunt – Family Adventure

Four Seasons Resort Whistler launches exclusive Family Adventure Package in partnership with Whistler Geocaching Adventures

This summer families staying at Four Seasons Resort Whistler can experience a modern-day treasure hunt, navigating their way to fun, all the while exploring the valley floor and mountains of Whistler. The Family Adventure Package provides an activity for all ages to enjoy. This updated version of the scavenger hunt uses the latest in Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to guide participants to buried treasure. Guests use a GPS receiver to hide and seek containers called “caches”, a small waterproof container containing a logbook and “treasure”. Following an introductory course on how to use GPS, families embark on a high tech treasure hunt called ‘geocaching’, finding a random assortment of caches or treasures that range in value.

“Geocaching is rapidly growing in popularity,” said Nic Nero, Founder and CEO of Whistler Geocaching Adventures. “Today, there are over a million public geocaches available, placed in over 100 countries and all seven continents including Antarctica.”

The cache locations are often beautiful, out-of-the-way places that visitors to Whistler might not dare venture to on their own or even know about. The GPS doubles as a tracker and radio should families become lost or require assistance and help is always close by. The cache, which contains a ‘treasure’, can be arranged in advance by the group leader. For instance, a Polly Pocket™ might be used for a family with small children to find. Families also receive a prize ‘Geocoin’ at the end of their adventure which they can register and track online as it moves around the world.

Four Seasons Resort Whistler provides the ultimate base camp on this exciting adventure. Starting from CAD $385 per night the Family Adventure Package includes a Deluxe Room and 10 per cent savings on all meals purchased at the Resort including the restaurant, bar, pool and in-room dining. Complimentary adult tickets are provided plus free tickets for all children under 10 for Whistler Geocaching Adventures. Families are also given a backpack filled with goodies upon arrival to prepare them for the great outdoors. Orienteering items include a Four Seasons water bottle, Executive Chef Scott Thomas Dolbee’s Signature Trail Mix, a British Columbia Guide to Wildlife, a Cliff Bar™, granola bar and chocolate.

Geocaching is a worldwide treasure-seeking game with the help of a GPS or GPS-enabled mobile device. It is one of the fastest growing live, recreational social media activities in the world. Geocachers are families with children, retired individuals and grandparents, hikers, explorers and outdoors-people.

Four Seasons Resort Whistler to Unveil New Restaurant

Modern Steak Concept Will Feature Canadian Prime Beef Cooked on an Infrared Grill

Starting next month, Whistler visitors and locals will have a new way to satisfy their après ski appetites.

Sidecut, scheduled to open June 19, 2010, is Four Seasons Resort Whistler’s new restaurant featuring a modern steak concept. Named for the distinctive curved shape of skis as well as the location of a cut of beef, the restaurant promises diners “steak with an edge.”

While Sidecut will serve traditional breakfast and lunch favourites, dinner is when the chefs will really show their culinary chops. Presenting a contemporary twist on the classic steakhouse, Executive Chef Scott Thomas Dolbee and Chef de Cuisine Edison Mays have put together a dinner menu that includes an array of creative steak and seafood dishes.

Steak – Every restaurant needs a secret ingredient, and at Sidecut the secret to its success starts with using the finest-quality steak available, specifically the top two per cent of Canadian beef aged 40 days. Add to this, state-of-the-art technology in the form of an 1,800-degree infrared grill – which uses 100-per cent infrared heat to cook meat evenly and ensure it retains its own natural juices – and the result is one of the best tasting steaks in the world.

In addition to steak, diners may choose from regional meat specialties such as Double-Cut Sterling Pork Chops, BC Fallow Venison Loin and Bone-in Braised Bison Short Ribs.

Seafood – With both the Pacific Ocean and countless mountain lakes in its backyard, Sidecut draws its seafood selections from the finest sources. Seafood entrée items include Queen Charlotte Sound Halibut, Wild Chinook Salmon and Egmont Spot Prawns, among many others.

Seasonings and Sauces – For those who enjoy even more flavour variety, Sidecut offers a choice of six custom rubs with each dinner entrée. From Edison’s Medicine – a complex mix of 14 whole-roasted herbs and spices inspired by chef Mays’ travels around the world – to the exotic Buddha’s Hand, a delicious lemony accompaniment that pairs especially well with halibut, there’s a rub to suit every taste. Each entrée is also served with a presentation of six sauces, such as citrusy Yuzu Butter, smooth Crème Fraîche Bearnaise and tangy Wasabi Mustard.

Sides – Served à la carte in traditional steakhouse style, side dishes integrate Pacific Northwest ingredients and local produce, including a variety of vegetables drawn from the Resort’s own 2,700-square-foot rooftop garden. The nearby agricultural community of Pemberton provides the Resort with a

-more-

seasonal supply of fresh potatoes, which are made into such delectable sides as Spicy Fries, Aged Cheddar and Potato Gratin, Yukon Potato Purée and Fingerling and Bacon “Lyonnaise.”

Sips – Designed by sommelier Riley Krieger-Mercer, the restaurant’s wine program is designed to pair perfectly with Sidecut’s savoury steaks and regional seafood. The extensive wine list – featuring more than 200 bottles and 30 wines by the glass – highlights a wide variety of labels, from international classics to boutique British Columbia wines. In addition, the restaurant is willing to open any of its 60 steakhouse reds if a guest orders at least two glasses, making for even more interesting wine and food pairings.

Setting – Situated on the lower level of the Resort, Sidecut offers breathtaking views of the local mountains from a cosy fire-lit setting. A sleek wood interior, colourful earth tones and an open fireplace provide a comfortable ambiance for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

During the summertime, guests will be able to dine outdoors on the restaurant’s spacious heated patio. On long summer evenings, an outdoor fire pit makes for an inviting ambience, while live music three to four nights a week creates a lively atmosphere that spotlights Whistler’s homegrown talent.

Open since June 2004, Four Seasons Resort Whistler is the only AAA Five-Diamond hotel or resort in all of Canada. The Resort offers a vacation experience of unlimited variety, along with the highly personalised, anticipatory service Four Seasons guests have come to expect and value around the world.

Four Seasons Resort Whistler offers an array of Olympic-inspired activities and packages for guests to catch the spirit of the Games.

Four Seasons Resort Whistler, the only AAA Five Diamond Resort in Canada, continues to have availability during the Olympic Games. Rates start from CAD $1225 per night for a Moderate room (double occupancy) with a minimum stay of three nights.

To ignite the spirit of sport and competition, on and off the slopes, Four Seasons Resort Whistler has designed a number of in-house activities leading up to and during the Olympics.

Reach the finish line and warm up in record time by sipping on a ‘2010 Torch’ cocktail (CAD $55), a deliciously athletic mix of pear purée, Monavie energy drink and lemongrass-infused vodka served in a copper torch-inspired glass. This experience is sure to entertain with a personal torch ceremony as the servers sweep towards the guest from bar to table top hitting the mark with the flaming cocktail passed in relay fashion. View the running of the torch at Fifty Two 80 Bar.

The award-winning Spa at Four Seasons Resort Whistler has designed a treatment for the World Cup Champion or amateur athlete at heart. Endorsed by Britt Janyk of the Canadian Alpine Women’s Ski Team, the On the Podium Après Alpine Treatment is a 110 minute full body experience (CAD $285). Hot stones soothe tired back muscles, while warm, moist towels wrapped around the feet restore circulation. A combination of stretching and deep tissue massage restore muscles, preparing any athlete for another action packed day in the Alpine. “The massage is fantastic,” said Janyk. “It is a great balance between a sports massage and a relaxation treatment. I feel like I have a new set of feet!”

Amateur video makers will have an opportunity to hone their skills and compete for phenomenal prizes. Four Seasons Resort Whistler presents The Spirit of Whistler Video Competition, where guests are encouraged to go into the village and capture the essence of Whistler through a video camera during the Olympic period. The winning video will earn the owner a prize certain to please.

Reaching for gold, kids can triumph with a special Wii Olympics Game Room which offers a different action-packed video game in addition to supervised outdoor competitions lovingly known as the ‘Wee Olympics’.

During the games, the Clean Your Plate Club offers a new incentive for kids to finish their meal – their very own Olympic medal! That’s right…upon presenting an empty plate in Fifty Two 80 Bistro, the youngster’s hearty appetite will be recognized with a keepsake Chocolate Gold Medal.
