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 and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
