JACKSON, WY — Are you ready for a taste of summer? Jackson Hole Food & Wine, held June 20 – 22, has a few tickets remaining for its third annual Summer Festival. This year’s festival, which consists of nine unique events held throughout the valley, features an all-star cast of celebrated guest chefs and winemakers in addition to some of Jackson Hole’s top culinary and beverage talent.
Highlights of the weekend include the ever popular Taste of Jackson Hole held at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort; intimate dinner collaborations hosted in some of Jackson Hole’s top restaurants (The Kitchen, Orsetto, & TRIO) with James Beard Foundation Award-winning chefs; a hands-on cocktail making class with Death & Co. at the newly opened SUDA Izakaya, and SAVOR, the ultimate Western-style party at Mead Ranch featuring the sounds of the Tony Furtado Band.
The festival weekend welcomes a roster of celebrity guest chefs including culinary icon Daniel Boulud (The Dinex Group, New York); Katie Button (Cúrate Tapas Bar, Button & Co. Bagels, Asheville, NC); Mike Lata (FIG, The Ordinary, Charleston, SC); pit-master Adam Perry Lang (APL Restaurant, Los Angeles); and Bryan Voltaggio (Estuary, Washington, DC; VOLT, Frederick, MD).
“I’m very selective these days about which food and wine festivals I like to participate in,” says Mike Lata. “All of my peers who have been to Jackson Hole Food & Wine have spoken very highly of the entire experience, especially the organization and the exceptional programming. Also, I’ve never been to Jackson Hole in the summer; it will be a welcome respite from the humid summer days in the Carolinas.”
Jackson Hole Food & Wine’s 2019 Summer Festival and Winter Fest support Hole Food Rescue, a local non-profit that distributes excess food from grocery stores, bakeries, farms and local businesses to organizations serving the at-risk, in-need residents of Teton County, WY.
