Taste Of The Wasatch
A quick reminder that there are still just a few tickets left for this Sunday’s Taste Of The Wasatch (Sunday, August 3rd at Solitude). Prices are $90 for general admission and $125 for VIP – that gets you inside the covered pavilion and a guaranteed seat, not to mention early access at 11.30AM. Both entry levels come with six drink tickets (wine, beer and heavy beer) and access to over 50 restaurants, their culinary genius and as much as you can eat therein.
Oh, and its a great cause too.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. 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”.
