On the 4th of March you might want to head on down to the Viking Cooking School. Wild Grape’s Phelix Gardner, Meditrina’s Jen Gilroy and Metropolitan’s Justin Shifflett will be coming together to compete in a Tapas show down. The event is in aid of the YWCA: dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Attendees will help a celebrity judging panel in deciding the tapas champ. Prices are $50 for tapas (total of nine) and $15 for wine pairings. Reserve your tickets now at www.ywca.com or call (801) 537.8614.
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have written in myopic detail about the Salt Lake City dining scene for the better part of seventeen years.
I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV. Pause those credits, yep, that’s me! I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
