Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach Announces the Ultimate Reinvention of Their Kosher Catering Menu

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - For more than 50 years engaged couples have sought out The Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach as a prime destination to host their dream weddings. Now with the recent addition of executive chef Alon Hershkowitz, the luxury hotel in Miami Beach is pleased to announce its new Kosher Catering Menu. Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach has always been about serious eats and welcomes patrons to experience their ultimate reinvention of "The Kosher Banquet" inspired by local flavors and fearless culinary visionaries.

"It is a great honor to be tapped by Eden Roc Renaissance and asked to create an entire Kosher Banquet menu for their special events. I was inspired by my own culture and the decadence of the hotel when creating this new menu for guests on their most special occasions." - Alon Hershkowitz, Executive Chef

A native of Israel, hailing from a small town near Tel Aviv, Alon Hershkowitz began his culinary journey at Tadmor, a prestigious culinary school at the age of fifteen and landed his first job at the Sheraton Hotel in Tel Aviv. In 2011, Hershkowitz joined the team at Eden Roc Renaissance as Executive Chef to oversee the hotel's first kosher kitchen. Hershkowitz introduced a variety of kosher recipes at the Miami Beach resort and helped develop a brand new wedding and banquet menu.

From the chilled Hors d'Oeuvres to the Shawarma King Sandwich options, Hershkowitz has designed a menu that truly caters to the Jewish tradition and offers a wide array of delectable plates. For starters guests can enjoy passed appetizers consisting of Smoked Duck in Phyllo with Peaches and Mint; as well as Seared Sea Bass on Kosher Salt Potato Chips, and Mini Salmon en Croute with Fresh Spinach.

Hershkowitz's inspired menu of dinner entrees contains a wealth of options sure to appease the appetite of any guest. Main plates include: Orange and Parsley Roasted Chicken on Warm Potato Salad with Peppers and Asparagus; Blackened Grouper on Cilantro-Lemon Rice with Citrus - Mango Salsa; and Braised Brisket on Fresh Horseradish Roasted Vegetables, Potato Roesti, and Bordelaise Sauce. To top it off, mouth-watering desserts such as Pine Nut Squares with Caramel Drizzle and Poached Pears along with Apple-Rum Croustade round out the complete dining experience leaving guests saying Mazel Tov all over again!

The stylish new Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach commands center stage on one of the world's most famous beaches, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the yachts and mansions of the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. With the redesign of its Historic Tower and the addition of the sleek new 21-story Ocean Tower and ELLE Spa, the Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach has almost doubled in size from 349 guest rooms to 631 oversized guest rooms, including three 2,500 sq. ft. penthouse suites, 18 oceanfront one-bedroom suites, and 15 bi-level bungalow suites with floating staircases; all rooms feature flat-screen HDTVs, iPod stations & Wi-Fi high speed internet.
