Food & Beverage

Meet Our Culinary Leader Scott Hutchinson TOPS’L Food & Beverage Manager 844-577-6472 When did you join the TOPS’L Team? July 2015 Where and how were you trained? US Navy training- chef onboard USS San Francisco (Fast Attack Submarine), White House (chef and butler), French Embassy (chef) & also Certified Estate Manager (Butler) How did you get into the culinary business? Ever since I can remember, I have had a taste for the unique and decadent when it comes to food. Variety is not only the spice of life, but rather the most basic ingredient of my diet. What is your most popular food or drink item TOPS’L? On the Blue Dunes Pool Deck, the “Destin Refresher” with Pinnacle Vodka and Cruzan Coconut Rum with pineapple and cranberry juices with a splash of lemon-lime soda is our biggest selling drink. One of our most popular foods is our Cuban Sandwich.

What is your first food memory? My first food memory involves frying eggs. I remember being about 7 years old and frying eggs when my parents weren’t home. I was more paranoid about the eggs looking and tasting beautiful than I was about the spanking I would get if they caught me cooking without an adult around! What are some of your signature dishes? More than a signature dish, I have more of a signature philosophy about food. It is important to me to respect food by sourcing local ingredients, supporting our local vendors who put their hard work into their outstanding products, and being true to the craft of cooking. I believe in Slow Foods, it takes time for perfection. Here at TOPS’L, we will be exploring much more of this philosophy as time goes by. Is there an ingredient you use a lot that would surprise people? It may surprise people, but I appreciate the use of good fats as there is no substitute in flavor or satisfaction. What would we find in your kitchen at home? Fresh, non-processed foods waiting to be thrown together in a unique way using techniques from a variety of cultures throughout the world. Variety…no repetition… Love that! What’s your go-to snack? I’m a sucker for homemade flavored popcorn as a snack.

What drives you to be in the food & beverage industry? What drives me each day is to please people with great food and thoughtful service. It’s as simple as treating others as you would like to be treated. I love eating interesting food and receiving topnotch service!

TOPS’L Through the Years

TOPS’L

through the years The Clark brothers out of Dallas, Tex., had the vision for TOPS’L back in the 1980s, and not a moment too soon. The land changed ownership many times over the years, and the latest owner had plans to develop an automobile racetrack. Luckily, these enterprising young developers had a vision to create a “residential-commercial resort community” on the 52 acres of land we now refer to as TOPS’L Beach & Racquet Resort. On September 20, 1983, they formed the TOPS’L Master Association with documents that still govern how TOPS’L operates today. Throughout one year, 1986, they developed roads and infrastructure, along with the sales and check-in office, TOPS’L Club, tennis courts, Tennis Village and Beach Manor. Immediately following the completion of these

Page 28 l TOPSLLife.com | Reservations: 844-887-6724

projects, the Clark brothers were affected by sweeping changes to income tax laws which forced them to release control of the property. In 1994, Abbott Realty (the former business name for ResortQuest) joined forces with a prominent businessman from Memphis, Tenn., to purchase the property and continue to build out the plans for the resort. From 1996 to 1999, The Summit, Captiva, Sierra Dunes and The Tides were constructed. TOPS’L has three undeveloped parcels approved for construction throughout the property; however, at this time none have immediate plans to be developed.
