Dine O’Round Chef Showdown

Come join me at Squatters in downtown SLC tomorrow night (Wednesday October 10th) where I’ll be doing my best Gordon Ramsay / Simon Cowell impression. Starting at 6 p.m. at the downtown brewpub, the 2018 edition of the Dine O’Round Chef Showdown will kick off. During the evening Amanda McGraw of The Copper Onion and Jonathan LeBlanc of Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar will compete in a head-to-head competition; a three-round cookoff incorporating secret ingredients from the Downtown SLC Farmers Market.

I’ll be joined by local food writer Aimee Cook and Matt Crandall – winner of last years event – and head honcho of cuisine at The Bourbon Group (Whiskey Street, White Horse, Bourbon House). Should you swing by you can watch events unfurl and support Utahns Against Hunger too, which the event benefits.

Cost is $35 and guests will be able to enjoy a few small bites and signature cocktails from the restaurants participating as you watch them face off. Say hi if you stop by!

Feast Of The Five Senses 2018

Tickets are still available for this years Slow Food Utah Fundraiser – you can read our full preview here. The elevator pitch is the same as most years: join some of Utah’s best chefs for a multi course meal, that kicks off with a fun cocktail/wine/canape social hour.

This years event will be held in the imposing downtown SLC Masonic Temple, which should make for a fascinating event by itself alone. Tickets are $125 with $25 for wine pairings:

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you!  I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune.  I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.

I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade.   I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand.  I ate all the pies.
