This Summer Escape to The Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North

By: The Food Hunter

The Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North offers the comfort of timeless adobe architecture in the heart of the Arizona desert. Located in North Scottsdale, the resort is just a short drive from many of the popular attractions, while still far enough out of the city for those wanting to experience the quiet and relaxation the desert has to offer.

Rooms are casita style, each with a king size bed,

 a sitting area in front of the fireplace and

a cozy private patio with over-sized chairs for enjoying the amazing mountain views.

The resort offers both a fine dining and a casual restaurant option on property; so you won't have to go far to keep your belly full. Guests can choose from Talavera, a modern Spanish steakhouse which serves dinner nightly, or the more casual Proof, an American Canteen which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's even a Pop-cycle, the resort's own "treatmobile" offering complimentary cool treats by the pool.

Although both restaurants are delicious, the star of the dining scene is undoubtedly the newly revamped Talavera, which showcases fresh ingredients in it's flavorful selection of tapas and paella.

If you are planning dinner at Talavera during your stay at the Four Seasons, and I highly recommend you do, it's a great idea to start or finish your evening at the Gin Bar.

Located just inside the restaurant, the new Gin Bar, offers a large selection of gin, sherry and vermouth. Guests can choose their preferred libation(s) and have a cocktail crafted specially for them.

The menu at Talavera, put together by chef Samantha Sanz, includes a large selection of Tapas, a variety of meat and cheese, a nice selection of local produce, fresh seafood and hand-crafted paellas.

One of my favorite tapas on the menu is the grilled octopus with potatoes. If you've never had Spanish octopus, I can tell you it's amazing!

If I had to pick just one entree off the menu at Talavera, and I'm glad I didn't, it would be the spiced tuna crudo. Served with apricot halves, toasted hazelnuts, and lardo de ibérico de bellota, it's a treat for the taste-buds.

The carrot salad, we enjoyed compliments of the chef, was not only delicious but one of the most beautifully composed dishes I've ever seen. Heirloom carrots were exquisitely plated with watermelon radish, baba ganoush, crow's dairy feta, and dill.

With so many tantalizing dishes on the dinner menu be sure to leave room for dessert. You won't want to miss the Tres Leches Cake. Topped with dulce de leche ice cream, coffee nut brittle & a Kahlua rum sauce, which is eloquently poured table-side, this dessert is not to be missed.

After a comfortable night's sleep be sure to stop in at Proof for breakfast/brunch. They offer a buffet and tantalizing dishes like the Green Chile Pork Benedict served with hash browns with tomato bacon jam.

or my favorite the Red Chile Short Rib Hash which was a mix of smoked short ribs, eggs, home fries and red Chile sauce.

The Four Seasons at Scottsdale Troon North is the perfect spot for vacationing couples and families; offering guests 5-star luxury accommodations and amazing dining options.
