Executive Chef Leo Gianulis hangs his chef’s coat at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach on Jamboree, just east of Pacific Coast Highway. In addition to responsibilities for all the culinary operations and events in-house, their SHOR restaurant is a lovely hide-away with an outdoor terrace that is just perfect for this warmer weather. And in keeping with spring and summer fare, the Strawberry Lemon Cake is the perfect finish to any meal. Chef Leo’s secret ingredient is Meyer Lemons.
With a Greek heritage, Chef Leo explains that lemons are a big part of his repertoire. Growing up, he had a large Meyer lemon tree and this was a basic staple in the house. From dolmades, to broiled halibut and baklava for dessert, they used as much as that tree produced.
On the menu for spring and summer this year, Chef Leo is heralding a dessert infused with Myer lemons, and that his refreshing Strawberry Lemonade. This dessert has four components. In addition to the fresh strawberries, this dessert features a lemon cake, lemon curd and lemon cream.
