Avocado and Chipotle Slaw

Every time I return from the East Coast, I get nostalgic about seafood. Technically, I live in the wrong place for my pallet. Here, you get treated to local cattle, wild game and treats like morel mushrooms, almost everywhere you go. Menus are laden with buffalo, elk and heavy on the meat options. But do […]

Avocado Salsa Verde

If I could, I would do all my shopping solely at farmers markets. I love getting my goods from the farmers themselves, or a local craftsman who specializes in something unique. I frequent both our local markets, and Sloan Bergien’s stand south of town for the best produce selection. But I also seek out farmers […]

How to Host a Farmers Market Dinner

Who doesn’t love a good themed dinner party? And the best theme I have heard of in a while came from Sloane Bergien, who runs the Jackson Hole Farmers Market, as well as is the President of the Board of the Farmers Market on the Town Square. Recently, she hosted a dinner party for 10 at […]

Curried Pickled Carrots

A few years ago, many restaurants began offering appetizers of homemade pickles. They also starting adding them as condiments and toppings and began making fancier versions as side dishes. And unlike some food trends that are easy to tire of, I still love pickles. As a home cook, I started pickling not long after I […]

Leftover Scramble

I am feeling the need to talk about salt and seasoning. This is prompted by a wedding I recently attended. Thankfully, the couple doesn’t live near here and hopefully don’t regularly follow my columns so I can discuss it truthfully. Almost anything can taste okay with enough seasoning. Yes, there are some disasters that even […]

Homemade Huckleberry Milkshake

After years of being skunked, I finally found some huckleberries. And boy was it fun! I only sort of loosely went looking for them. I really just needed to go on a dog friendly hike and hadn’t been away from the quick ones near town in a while. I saw social media postings of others […]

OYG is Back, Sort Of

Anyone else miss pizza night on Sundays? How about the huge bowl of steaming, rich lasagna? Or even the homemade lemoncello and polenta cookies at the end of the meal. I think anyone who has lived in the valley for more than a couple years misses the Old Yellowstone Garage, or OYG as it was […]

Raspberry Jalapeño Cilantro Jam

Last week I was in Park City, Utah, and I had the best afternoon snack. It was a piece of thick wheat bread, slathered with a smear of softened goat cheese and topped with a habanero-orange jam. It was the perfect piece of toast. If I lived near this restaurant (Publik Coffee Roaster if you […]

Parker Thomas Events will Help you Pick the Perfect Menu

We’ve all been there. The event (wedding, dinner party, fundraiser, etc) starts out great. And then, you eat the food. All of a sudden all you can remember is how the “hot” dish was served cold and the ice cream on the dessert melted before it arrived to your table. Well, if you pick the […]

Peach Barbeque Sauce

Peaches scream summer to me.  There is something about the delectable fruit that is typically best eaten on a hot day on the deck so the juices can just run down your chin. And the best peaches, I believe, are grown in the hottest states: Georgia, South Carolina and Texas, for example. Not long ago, […]

Homemade Ricotta

I am in one of those phases in which I have been making lots of great food. Not to brag or anything, but I’ve just been inspired, and it’s been fun. This can be a phase. I happen to be into it right now and have been going out of my way to try new dishes […]

Homemade Grainy Mustard

As we approach full on summer, I am in project mode. Mainly, I have been making sauces. A few years ago I made the mistake of starting to read labels on jarred food items. I say this is a mistake in jest, obviously. It is great to educate yourself about what you are putting into […]
