As the new head chef at Walden Country Club, Chef John Quinn, who has been cooking for 15 years, is turning up the heat as he plans a new menu set to be unveiled this October. Quinn uses only the freshest ingredients, most of them sourced locally, to craft a one-of-a-kind menu. Items like heirloom tomatoes, lamb chops, herb roasted carrots, prosciutto, scallops and the like will be no stranger. Brad Kuykendall, membership director, said, “We prefer to be of high quality. Our goal is to be competitive with the restaurants in the area and Chef Quinn helps us achieve this.” Members of Walden Country Club will have plenty of chances to sample Quinn’s cuisine. From corporate happy hours to beer and wine tastings, Walden offers numerous opportunities for its members to come together over food and drink. Once a month, members are invited to attend a beer or wine tasting for just $45. At each tasting, Quinn prepares a unique menu tailored to the beverages being served. The wine and beer representatives also come out to speak to attendees. Dining nights are also held for members throughout the week. Wednesdays are pasta night where guests can interact with Quinn as he prepares their perfect pasta. Thursdays are reserved for prime rib while Friday diners see steak, pork chops and seafood. Quinn also notes that he can prepare just about anything by request. Fallon Laughlin, director of catering and events, said, “John has been here for one month and arrived during our busiest time, yet it already feels like he has been here forever.” To learn more about Walden Country Club, visit waldencc.com.
