Love of Utah? Check. Love of food? Check. Love of skiing.... I moved from Pennsylvania in order to shred bigger mountains. Ski Utah wants me to be the Foodie because food is one of my top three passions (Ski Patrol, Skiing, and Cooking).
I live with three guys, and we all frequent the mountains. Cooking is what I do when I'm stressed, and they can attest that the cuisine is good! My boyfriend, and his roommates would agree.
Not only do I like to cook, I like to eat! Whether the menu contains hamburgers or a juicy medium rare steak with sautéed rosemary vegetables, count me in!
My biggest goal as the Ski Utah Foodie blogger would be to give the readers easy and make ahead delicious Après Ski options. I have a potato soup recipe that is perfect after a long day on the slopes, followed by Make in a Mug Cake (homemade whipped cream optional).
From my experience, most skiers spend their money on equipment and lift passes, instead of often-overpriced mountain cuisine. Including restaurant options that are worth a stop should be part of the blog, but not the whole thing!

A good meal is more than attempt to soothe the growling beast within after a great day on the mountain. After all, a meal isn't just about the food. It's about the experience; I daresay a culinary adventure, an epicurean enterprise!
Growing up with the smells of authentic, Italian homestyle cooking wafting up from the basement where my Italian grandparents lived, I quickly learned to eat slowly, talk loudly, and savor each fork or spoonful. Family dinners never involved the television and always lasted an hour to three, depending on what was on the menu and who was involved.
Now that I'm grown and have to forage for myself, I've stumbled upon a world of good food surrounding Salt Lake, available for the taking. I believe that food should be fresh, organic if possible, locally derived when you can help it, grown and prepared with love, and enjoyed in the company of others.
It should fill, fuel and fortify.
I live to write and love to eat and would traipse around the state in search of the best eats, from those within reach of the family cook to the tables of the most celebrated and least known establishments in Utah.

Raised in the Canadian Rockies, I started skiing at three, have been snowboarding since Burton made whale tails, and spent my University years working in fine dining restaurants learning why you drink cabernet suavignon with steak but not stroganoff, how sherbet differs from sorbet, and why porcini mushrooms are a must in a good risotto.
Suffice to say, I consider myself an aficionado of fine food as well as champagne powder.
I also love writing; it's my profession. I've spent my adult life writing about outdoors sports for publications like Kootenay Mountain Culture and Action Asia, as well as my own award-winning blog, www.matt-gibson.org, and the About.com snowboarding guide.
I'm a decent food photographer as well: http://su.pr/2IcjZW
As I've grown as writer, so has my outdoors sports-loving audience. If I'm chosen as the Ski Utah foodie blogger, I'll most certainly abuse the position to brag about my on-hill adventures and off-piste culinary pursuits to my 10,000 monthly blog readers, 3000 Twitter followers, 2500 Facebook followers, as well as my hundreds of Pinterest, Google +, and Instagram followers.

Next to my family my two biggest loves are cooking and skiing. My love for cooking started at the age of 5 when I would stand on a stool in my Nana’s kitchen and help her cook. A couple years latter I started skiing and have spent most of my life on the mountain or in the kitchen.
I moved to Utah in 1991 to become a ski bum spending my days on the snow and my nights cooking in restaurants. I attended New England Culinary Institute in 1994 and have worked my way up to Executive Chef positions in restaurants in Salt Lake, Park City and Snowbird. Currently I own a Private Chef business and live in Park City with my wife and two kids. I have designed and built several websites including my current site and have used my knowledge of web based marketing to attain number one search engine placement. Social media is also part of my marketing strategy and I use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I have wanted to write a food blog for years and have been looking for the right opportunity. Hopefully I have found it with Ski Utah.

Yes, I love food. (And I would never trust anyone who doesn’t.) Sit me down with garlicky mussels, chewy French bread and a buttery chardonnay and I’m in heaven. Well, almost. What would make that scene truly divine is if it followed a day navigating 18 to 20 inches overnight with moderate to heavy flurries throughout the daylight hours. And that is why I think I would make a stellar Ski Utah Foodie Blogger. Yes, dining is about technique, service, execution, etc. But what makes Utah’s emerging dining scene unique is not what’s on the plate. It’s about passionate people from all over the world (and from right here in the Beehive) maneuvering quirky laws and preconceptions to practice their craft in this second-to-none landscape. How Utah’s stunning backdrop inspires culinary options worthy of any metro area is the story I want to share with the world. Why else? I’m ravenous for all types of foodie media from blogs and cooking shows to my vast cookbook library. I’ve built a career on touting Utah things to do and see, particularly skiing, and want to broaden that repertoire to food. Lastly, I am dead center of Ski Utah’s target demographic. Being Ski Utah’s Foodie Blogger would be a practice in preaching to the choir.

My 54-year-old friend and surrogate Ski Mama passed this blog announcement to me with a brief note: ‘You would be PERFECT for this position. Apply. Now.’
As a 29-year-old with a 50-year-old soul, I would do a glorious job writing for SkiUtah. Born in Florida, my inexplicably, pale legs opted to manifest destiny 5 years ago to slide up and down the mountains. Admittedly, my skill set is stronger in creative blogging and prolific eating than skiing, but I bump through moguls without risk of death - especially if there’s a great happy hour waiting for me at the bottom of the hill.
I pride myself in embracing the Utah lifestyle, my love of fabulous dining experiences, pithy writing, apt descriptions, and a whole she-bang of humor. Recommendations come natural to me, so I would love to utilize that skill to share my love. The only thing sharper than my mind is my tongue. I am content at 8,000 feet above sea-level breaking down food simply into sweet, sour, bitter, salty, or umami, or discussing how the addition of orange zest elevated the hint of vanilla flavor to divinity in this serene, snowy white setting.

Our family moved to Utah from the southern border in 2010. A good thing about moving is that you get to be a “tourist” for a long time, exploring all of the wonderful things that Utah has to offer such as hiking, museums, unique shops, restaurants, and snow sports. Since moving to Utah, my boys traded in their boogie boards for snowboards and we had a blast last winter going boarding & skiing! We also explore local cuisine and began blogging about our own family reviews on eating establishments around the Salt Lake Valley as well as local activities so that our friends from around the country can see how great Utah is! Being an “older” mom of teen boys that have never ending appetites, this has proven to be an ONGoing Adventure! I also post with Facebook, LinkIn, Twitter and WordPress, with the hopes that those who live in other states can see the true beauty of Utah from an “outsider turning insider” perspective. I enjoy writing in an exciting way that the target audience can relate to as I fit into that category myself, and I would love the position as Ski Utah’s Foodie Blogger.

I love food! If God did not intend for me to enjoy food; he would not have given me such a large mouth and sensitive tastes buds with which to enjoy it. I love discussing food with anyone who will listen. To further my education, my current employer was kind enough to sponsor my Court of Master Sommelier entry level course and exam. This gives me the ability to pair wine with food.
I work as a concierge. Knowing and understanding the guest palate has been my vocation and avocation for decades. Whether a guest is looking for haute cuisine or the neighborhood dumpy dinner; it is my job to find it for them. You might say that I am a professional matchmaker of the culinary kind.
I must confess I no longer ski. Seduced by comfortable footwear, I have given myself over to the dark side. I now snowboard. When I strap on my snowboard I feel like a little kid again.
My first ski home was Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. As a ski bum, I have also lived and worked in Beaver Creek and Aspen. I live in Park City. Utah offers amazing people, powder and food!

Pick me pick me. I currently eat out 6x a week in Park City and SLC and have been told by my FB friends that I must start blogging about food. I have the palate you are looking for. I trek yearly to Napa for the wine and food. I have spent a month each in NYC, France, Spain, Italy, the UK and Australia being a food critic. I am a female skier in your target age range that has been skiing for 45 years. I love to cook, watch food network passionately and have a very discerning palate. I am on FB 24/7. I am already in search of the perfect drink, perfect meal, best ambiance and writing about it on FB. I can tell you where to go, when to go, what to order, where to sit to maximize your culinary experience. By the way I think you need to be a female to really appeal to this target audience and I meet that criteria. I am a pretty good photographer majoring in art in college and I have posted many pics on FB and now starting instagram of beautiful cuisine and libations. Just interview me please and then pick me pick me.

“Just like your favorite run of the day the Foggy Goggle is all you will be able to talk about! Revisiting everything from the smile that took over your face and pushed away the cold, to how you have come so far from the pizzas and French fries of last year.
From the wings to the juicy burgers the food is a treat for both body and soul. Personally, while the guys inhale their burgers I prefer the equally delicious Portabella mushroom. Stuffed with roasted vegetables, cheese, and quinoa, it’s everything your body AND your taste buds need to beat the guys down the mountain the next day.”
It’s not simply telling the reader about a great place, it’s having them trust that, whether it be a day trip or a vacation, the time around the table will be just as incredible as the time waist deep in the powder. It’s creating a relationship and a conversation with people near and far.
A degree in marketing + A professional photographer + A passionate skier =
A fresh and adventurous blog that mountain dwellers, like myself, can’t wait to read.

Here in Utah there are three kinds of outdoor loving people: Those who love the mountains in the fair weather months and soak up the sun. Those who love the mountains year round if the weather is decent. Those who huddle by the air conditioning vent all summer waxing their skis and snowboards and waiting for that first monster storm in November to declare the opening of the winter mountain season. I am the latter of the three. Nothing is more delightful after a day on the mountain than finding a great place to warm you insides with delicious food.
I have had the fortune of living in, or traveling to exotic places in Europe and South America. I have a taste for every type of cuisine. I enjoy what each culture has to offer. I also live with Celiac disease, making it a unique challenge to find delicious gluten free food, while enabling my wife to enjoy what the dining place has to offer. I think with this combination of experience, I could open up a new world to many who are looking for cuisine that is diverse and well priced.

I read with interest your need for a new food blogger in the Park Record this morning. I am new to Park City, having moved here with my husband and daughter this past March from Boston. I love to blog and have my own blog, and I am a real foodie. Being new to Utah gives me the unique perspective of trying everything with a fresh sense of excitement. I am also a registered nurse, but look at food beyond sustenance and nutrition, and more as a comfort to our souls. Which is important. Very important. Anyway, please consider me for the postion and thanks for the opportunity!

My belly is full of wisdom. I bring over 27 years of eating experience to the table. I know the importance of a good meal. It’s my belly that ultimately fuels my brain and it’s my brain that will take me to where I want to be. Where I want to be is Utah. Whether on top of a mountain in the Wasatch or at the bottom of a canyon in the desert, it all tastes good to me. Over the past three winters I’ve stuffed my face with powder at all fourteen resorts and skied my way through countless Utah food establishments. I’m active and I can definitely work up an appetite. I’m not afraid to go back for thirds. I visit the dentist regularly and my chewing ability is strong. My taste buds have my back. I’m cultured. I eat international fare domestically. Truthfully, I’m honest. I can relate. My mom is a 45-60 year old female and she loves me, and I, well I love Utah (and mom). But I’ve only just wet my appetite and I’m hungry for more. I want to fill my belly with this great state and then share it with the world.

Instead of talking about myself I am going to give you a sample
*****
Good afternoon skiers, riders, and foodies!
Whenever I'm near Park City (usually after a long day on the slopes), I find myself driving down Park Avenue a lot.
Why?
Many reasons, actually. First, it is the best and closest place to get out of the valley for some fresh air and fabulous food. Second, I go to PC mostly for skiing. The road that leads to the three nearest resorts (The Canyons, Park City Mountain Resort, and Deer Valley) funnels you to the restaurant district so I find myself in downtown Park City a lot.
Invariably, the question comes up about where to eat near the resorts. Is there good food in that area?
The last time I was in PC, colleagues of mine took me to a fantastic little European restaurant right off Park Avenue and Deer Valley Drive, an area that's only about a 5-minute drive or 12-minute walk from PCMR. The food at this award-winning European style restaurant was fantastic, and I was actually quite surprised at how reasonable the prices were.
We ordered the 4-course tasting, which costs $52. This is cheaper than the Steak Entre alone of $58 at The Riverhorse (a comparable restaurant in PC). We began with a creative and cute amuse: Puree of Parsnip. The spiced apple crème fraiche most definitely was my favorite element. It had a wonderfully smooth and velvety texture. But what I really liked about the fraiche was its rich and tangy, almost nutty flavor.
The next course, Sweet Corn Crusted Soft Shell Crab, melted in my mouth! I loved the intense shots of flavor that came from the chili aioli and roasted sesame seeds. Everything was executed exquisitely.
The final meat course, Grilled Flat Iron Steak, was served with Mushroom and Brie Crostinis along with sweet onion jam. The steak was cooked a perfect medium rare, though the crostinis were a bit dry and not a favorite at the table.
Our final course was De-constructed S’mores, which came with homemade marshmallows. Everyone raved about this dessert.
Thoughts
I came out of this restaurant thinking that I would definitely consider coming back. I thought some of the courses, such as the crab course or the puree course, were absolutely phenomenal. Other courses, even if they weren't "wow" dishes, were still solid. Perfect meal after a long day of skiing or if you just want to escape the craziness of the Salt Lake City scene.

You wanna go to Heaven? You know, that glimmering white place that lets you glide on angel wings? Come to Utah instead, it doesn't require dying. We prefer you be alive and fully embodied to swish through knee-deep powder with skis strapped to your feet. You may not sing and laugh all the way down, but you'll feel like it. This is how we roll in the cold-fluffy-white-stuff state. As good as the skiing gets, the dining afterwards is also bliss: warm your toes by a fire and eat a perfectly Medieval meal (think swiss-cheesey au gratin potatoes, wild game or fire-baked bread cooked over the fire.) Or meet-up with snow homies for live music at a brew pub and savor beefy beer stew with dumplings. Invite someone who looks great in the light of a oil lamp for fine dining to sip butternut squash soup. Get sticky as you share bourbon-filled bread pudding with caramel and whipped cream for dessert. Warm up with one-part Campfire Whiskey and two-parts juicy Black Angus Tri-Tip at High West Distillery and Saloon, or dive into Mac N' Cheese melting with alpine cheeses as deep as snow. Why are you dying for Heaven? When snow flies, get over here. End of story.

Bacon or riding powder? It's like asking me which one of my kids is my favorite. I just can't do it. Lucky for me, I don't have to choose. I get to indulge in my fair share of both.
Born and raised in Utah, it took leaving to realize that Park City was where I wanted to call home; the snow and ski town lifestyle are in my blood. It's a great place to raise a family and I've been lucky to grow a career that supports my obsession of being outside.
As a personal chef for the past ten years, I have created a great niche for myself as most of my clients are second homeowners. Two years ago, I started a food blog, www.mountainmamacooks.com, as a way to fill my time in the off season. I love that I have a space where I can share my passion for food, family and, of course, shredding my local mountain. Creating content, engaging readers and building an online community, I love every bit of the world that is social media!
If you're doing it right, eating and skiing aren't that different; creating memories, spreading stoke and enjoying them with friends and family. That is what it's all about

It’s 7:30 am. It snowed 18 inches last night and it’s still dumping. I’ve got my boots on and my skis over my shoulder, ready to ski powder. The only real questions are: where should I ski today and where will I be dining tonight? The beauty of working for myself means that I can ski every powder day and be adventurous in deciding where to ski and where to dine. I’ve been living the dream—working out of my house in Park City for the past 15 years and being able to take advantage of not only the greatest ski days but also the fine cuisine in Utah. In my 40 years, I’ve skied all over the United States, Canada, Switzerland, France and Argentina. My favorite place to ski, after Utah of course, is Alaska. I’ve been fortunate to experience all types of ski cultures and food. The one common element I found among all mountain people, no matter where located, is that what you eat after you ski is almost as important as the skiing. I would love to be able to share my deep appreciation for Utah skiing and dining with visitors and locals alike.

Yes, I am your food blogger. I am from Garmisch, Germany. On my last Europe trip, I noticed how much I identify my favorite ski slopes with the huts, restaurants and food. Now 13 years in Park City, I advise our house guests where to eat. I would love nothing more, than to find the best foods around the different Utah Resorts; get to know the regulars and have them take me to their favorite dining place. Finding the perfect apres ski places, fine dining as well as the hangout places, where you wait with burnt out thighs, for the rest of the family to check in; having a cappuccino and the greatest apple pie on earth. Being a skier since age 5, cook and mother of two skier boys, loving the mountains and truly enjoying good food, yet picky about the atmosphere; I will take time to visit a different resort every week and dive deep into the dining and skiing experience, interviewing the people on the lift and at the bar. I might actually be able to educate some of the restaurant owners, why food and atmosphere makes for a complete ski experience, from baby to grandma, from student to the CEO.

When we moved to Utah from Maine three years ago – a life-long New Englander in our 40-somethings – we were more than happy to trade the ocean in for the mountains. We knew we’d love the skiing; what we didn’t realize is how much we’d love nearly everything about our new home. Skiing is still our favorite, though: with our season passes to Alta, we are up in the mountains, hitting the slopes every weekend from Opening Day to Closing Day. It’s just what we do. Most of the ski days have been in Little and Big Cottonwood Canyons thus far – I’m just looking for an excuse to ski further afield and take advantage of the embarrassment of riches that are Utah’s winter resorts. Since I’ve been in Utah, I’ve chronicled our explorations of the state on my own blog – www.wewentwest.blogspot.com – detailing the skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, mountain-biking and road-cycling we’ve done, as well as reporting back on the restaurants we’ve tried. I’ve been pleasantly surprised to discover that Utah has fantastic restaurants, from garlic burger dives to haute cuisine. People need to know that there’s more to Utah food than Jell-O and funeral potatoes, and the Ski Utah Foodie Blog is a great opportunity for education and exploration.

My twitter reads Social Media Director by day, a foodie, traveler, and outdoorswoman by night. Browse my profiles and you’ll find the local moose population and everything I eat. It’s the joke at work that “we all know what Grace ate last night”. I’ve traveled the world with one goal: live to eat, not eat to live. I’ve traversed Thailand for THE spicy noodle bowl, tasted 90 year-old balsamic at the fourth best restaurant in the world and hung a canvas of a pizza that holds a special place in my heart.
In my years in Utah, I’ve found that people underestimate the food scene. We’ve got food trucks, farm-to-table, ethnic secrets and beers that will melt your face off. We’re not NYC, but chefs here are pushing limits to delight foodies and leave us salivating about the white wine mussel sauce at The Copper Onion, or the best fried chicken you will EVER taste at Talisker on Main.
I invite you to join my table and as we giggle over a bubbling pot of whiskey fondue and instagram ourselves in waist deep champagne powder. Where else can you find your next gastronomic adventure AND the greatest snow on earth?

Utah has been my home for 16 years, and it is a fabulous locale to be 46 and a voracious cook, reader, athlete & the mother of two teen boys. I just rode LOTOJA and am seeking a new adventure. A food-savvy blog for Ski Utah? Yes please. Friends and family will give a wink when I say any day on skis is a good day. Soft snow, adventurous company and the right food only elevates the experience. A veteran of S.T.H, the Diamond and the Daly Chutes, I am also a seasoned enthusiast of Utah’s food scene. On a chairlift, I have recommended the Shooting Star’s burgers as well as the sophisticated tasting menu at Forage. I have worked with numerous restaurateurs and food writers in Utah (skied with them, too!). Right this minute, I am really excited about the food and beverage improvements at the airport and the elk burger at Caffe Niche. I would add a vibrant, well-informed presence to Ski Utah’s blog world because I love to share my knowledge & passion for all things Utah whether it’s EPIC beers, Drake’s Apricot & Honey Chevre or the divine shrimp salad at J&G Grill.
