Four Seasons Hotel

Luxe Retreat
Four Seasons Hotel
at The Surf Club, Surfside, Florida

Surf’s up in the Sunshine State, with a new Four Seasons in the North Beach area of Miami. Fronted by 275 metres of white, sandy beach, Four Seasons at the Surf Club is close to Bal Harbour shopping and South Beach is just a short drive away. Opened in March, it is, in fact, the rebirth of the classic Surf Club that, thanks to its calendar of poolside fashion show and black-tie boxing nights, welcomed a decorated guestbook of celebs and world famous figures, from Frank Sinatra to Sir Winston Churchill – and it’s all because of the handiwork of architect Richard Meier and interior designer Joseph Dirand. The hotel promises memorable holidays, preserving and respecting the legacy of the club while adding new elements with a legendary service that will make the experience of staying here absolutely unparalleled. The hotel will have a spa and wellness centre as well as 77 guest rooms, including five unique accommodations that capture the essence of cabana culture.

Corned Beef/ Hunter Beef

WHAT’S IN THE MENU?
Corned Beef/ Hunter Beef

It was in the 17th century that the term ‘corned beef’ was invented by the British. It was used to describe the salt crystals which were used to cure the meat. It was Ireland that became the centre for corned beef producing one of the best quality. Soon after Ireland exported it to Europe as well as the Americas. However, this kind of beef was different from what is available in the markets today – the earlier versions contained more salt. The Irish corned beef was supplied to British and French navies and had a huge demand. The demand was so high that even though Britain was at war with France, ships were allowed by England to stop in Ireland to buy corned beef. However, the producers of corned beef could themselves not afford to have it and their staple food item was potato. It was in the 18th century that the North American colonies started producing their own corned beef and it was then that the Irish glory days were over. The potato plight soon broke out which led to the birth of the Great Famine, leaving millions of Irish dead while others immigrated to the United States. Once in the US, the Irish settled in urban areas and were making better money and could afford corned beef – the kind their ancestors were famous for. They bought it from kosher butchers made from brisket and a cut of meat from the front of the cow. The cooking and salting process involved made the meat tender and highly flavourful.
