Having lived in different cities in the United States that geographically are located in the north, south, east, and west I must say that Vegas continues to deliver within the confines of, but not limited to, construction of major projects, celebrity chefs, food of all kinds, and of course entertainment.
Nancy and I arrived to Vegas in 2002 and here is a list of just a few of the construction projects we've witnessed completed:
1.The entire 215 six-eight lane highway
2. The Wynn Hotel/Casino
3. The Encore Hotel/Casino
4. The Green Valley Hotel/Casino
5. The Red Rock Hotel/Casino
6. The Entire City Center (so large they wanted to give it a separate zip code)
7. Two Water Parks
8. Demolition and sometimes reconstruction of many already established restaurants and casinos
9. The T-Mobile Arena
10. And of course the two billion dollar "Las Vegas Stadium" new home for the Raiders football team
All of the above construction projects are finished except for the "Las Vegas Stadium" which will be completed before the beginning of the 2019 NFL football season.
In the last twelve months we've seen "One" the Michael Jackson show (Cirque du Soleil), Tony Bennet, Ringo Star and his All Stars, La Reve (Cirque du Soleil), and the Moody Blues 50th anniversary tour, all at different venues in Las Vegas. This is but a very small sampling of the entertainment that's available every night in Las Vegas.
Of course to compliment the world class entertainment you must have world class chefs offering their ever changing delectable culinary treats. Chefs like Jean George, Joel Robuchon (named chef of the century in 1989 by the prestigious guide Gault Millau), Guy Savoy, Jose Andres, Thomas Keller, Gordon Ramsay, Alain Ducasse, and of course Wolfgang Puck are but a few of the almost thirty world class chefs represented in Las Vegas. With top flight purveyors accessing products from around the world usually within 24 hours to compliment the talented and ever changing restaurant scene... the product selection and quality is literally unsurpassed.
As Vegas gets bigger, better, faster, through change in every different medium it is the constant evolution of gracious hospitality that connects the dots for the expanding list of guests from our own USA and other countries around the world.
The guests are more demanding because the world through smart devices seems like a smaller more accessible place. The guests expect more because of the exposure unfolding before us reflecting the constant stratospheric dissemination of information. Reviews of everything raise the bar through the human element of experience so that others can make a more intelligent decision.
PAZAZ ™ products mirror this revelation because of the five star quality reflected by the reviews of customers from around the country. All hand-crafted products, the Silicone Non-Stick Baking Mat, Heavy Duty Baking Sheet Pan, and the Steel Mesh Cooling Rack are now being used by some of the above world class chefs. There is one item that is included that I'm very proud of but I have to admit so far the world class chefs seem to ignore... my complementary cook book included with the purchase of the PAZAZ ™ products.
But who knows, if someday I see one of my recipes being used by any one of the chefs mentioned above I will know that duplication is the greatest form of flattery.
