There were many delicious dishes available in local restaurants in 2013 given the many accomplished chefs that work locally. There were also plenty of reasons to stay out of the kitchen – if one just thought about it!
Some of the cuisine highlights covered by the Village News this year included:
Top Chef – Leone D’Arcangelo – Fresco’s Grill Wine Bar
“Absolutely masterful” would be one way to describe D’Arcangelo’s cuisine at his popular restaurant located in Bonsall’s River Village. This chef brought home the “Top Chef – People’s Choice Award” in 2013 from the sixth annual So-Cal Chef Open at Pechanga Resort. D’Arcangelo is passionate about food and it shows – he uses only the freshest of ingredients and his numerous hand-crafted sauces are what dreams are made of.
