Chef Notes

 

Jackson Hole Recipes, Restaurant Reviews and Cooking Tips

In August of 2004, I was invited to write the Chef Notes column for our local weekly newspaper Jackson Hole News & Guide. During the busy summer and winter seasons, the entertainment section Stepping Out publishes the bi-weekly column featuring a special event or a new restaurant, chef or menu. It is torture to be compelled to dine at our wonderful local eating establishments. It’s a true sacrifice on my part, but only for my waistline. Enjoy!
