Greenough, Montana – The Resort at Paws Up, Montana’s premier luxury ranch resort, announces one of the most unique farm-to-table dining experiences in the country set for this summer: Bounty on the Blackfoot. Participants will enjoy a weekend of culinary immersion, featuring a full Saturday of opportunities to get up-close and personal with Top Chef’s Brooke Williamson (season 10) as she sources, conceptualizes and prepares an exclusive tasting menu on August 29, 2015. Guests will follow the chef and the ingredients as they travel from the farm to the dinner table, all in one day.
More details: Guests have the opportunity to join Chef Brooke as she power shops the Missoula Farmer’s Market first thing in the morning, offering a chance to experience one of the main sources of Montana’s local foods, and meet the talented purveyors behind them. The chef will create a multi-course tasting menu for a dinner to be served that evening, based on the regional produce, spices and proteins that are at their best that day. In honor of the famed location, at least one of the dishes will pay homage to the Blackfoot Indians who grew, hunted and harvested their food on the land where Paws Up is located today (10 miles of the Blackfoot run through the 37,000-acre property). All dishes will highlight the extraordinary agricultural bounty of Montana.
About the Chef: Chef Brooke’s experience on Top Chef Season 10 in Seattle gave her plenty of training for creating spontaneous menus that wowed panel after panel of world-renowned chef judges. She became famous for cooking with local ingredients and including surprising global twists. For these reasons, Chef Brooke and Bounty on the Blackfoot are a perfect pairing, and we’re honored to have her. This menu and experience are not to be missed.
Stars at Night Concert Series: Guests of Bounty on the Blackfoot will also be treated to the unique pairing of American Idol’s Crystal Bowersox and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Seth Glier, as they perform songs that they wrote while touring together, as well as tunes from their own acclaimed catalogs.
