SLC Eatery and Bucklin wine dinner
A little birdie tells me there a still a handful of seats left for this slamdunkingly (it’s a word) unmissable wine dinner at one of Utah’s most impressive – SLC Eatery. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there’s magic going on here.
Chef’s Paul Chamberlain and Logen Crew are teaming up with Francis Fecteau and Bucklin wines for…eesh…insert your own hyperbole here now. Frankly this is some of Utah’s most innovate cooking. Right. Damned. Now. Poured up with one of the West’s best boutique wineries.
If your calendar is empty and you love wine and great food, book a place. I can’t emphasize enough what a perfect pairing this will be. The dinner will start at 6.30 p.m. on August 5th and cost $40 for food, $50 for wine. Email info@slceaterycom or call (801) 355-7952 for reservations. Menu as follows:

Solitude Pigs And Vino
Catch Will Bucklin’s wines also up at Solitude Mountain Resort on August 3rd. Enjoy a menu of locally-sourced food prepared with ingredients hand-selected by Chef Craig Gerome – another of my favorite Utah chefs. You might know Gerome’s name from former stints at HSL etc.
You’ll get to mix and mingle with the wine maker before settling in for a five-course meal at the communal mountain tables; all the while taking in the scenery you see above – that’s last years event by the way.
The five-course dinner focused on pork is priced $95 per person; knock off $45 if you don’t want the wine pairing. There are 48 seats max for this event.
