We have partnered with Sharon Hage on multiple restaurant projects over the last several years. She has become the go-to restaurant consultant for many of our hotels’ Food and Beverage departments across the country. She is expert at hearing a broad range of ideas and distilling the essence into a contemporary menu that allows the individual chefs’ vision to shine. She is a valued part of our team.
Sharon is the complete package—brains, creativity, and talent—with an unmatched palate and understanding of flavor. And beyond that, she’s simply delightful to work with. We brought Sharon in to work with us on a project for the Raspberry Council because we knew she was the perfect fit to help us explore and communicate the nuances and culinary possibilities of raspberries. Her forward-thinking approach enabled us to go where we had not gone before and create a “Flavor Pairing Guide” that inspires chefs and product developers.
Sharon Hage is recognized by many to be Dallas’ most accomplished chef and restaurateur. She is also a keen observer and systems thinker. Her time at Celebration was a great learning experience for all of us. The investment that we made in bringing Sharon to Celebration will continue to pay great dividends for our organization for many years.
Most recently, since we had so much success working with Sharon at both Sixty Vines and Ida Claire, we asked Sharon to once again step in and help out. This time it was to work with our Chef de Cuisine Colleen O’hare at The Keeper. Our newest concept located in the Shops at Legacy. Sharon’s advice, direction, palate, and mentorship for the chef was immeasurable and resulted in, once again, an incredible and fun seafood menu with approachability to our consumer.
I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
