Slow biking and eating: Who not up for that?
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – What’s more Jackson than eating great food and biking to get there?
The Teton Food Tour is a one-of-a-kind event held every summer for four years running now. It is cohosted by Slow Food in the Tetons and Friends of Pathways, with the cooperation of the Jackson Hole Land Trust, View22, and Snake River Ranch. Slow Food board member Shauna Lockhart says the event has everything we love in Jackson—pathways, delicious local food, open spaces, live music, and riding bicycles.
The tour covers six miles of paved pathway beginning at R Park and finishing at Teton Village. Along the way, stops at six different locations will include small plates of food ranging from a mouth-watering menu including:
- Rendezvous Park: Buck Mulligan and Chippy’s Kitchen and Catering: Milligan house made gravalax on a crostini with a creme fraiche. And a panzanella salad on a cucumber round.
- Clayton Andrews Real Estate: The Slow Food Farmstand with Jordan’s Utah Apricots, creme fraiche and Alpenglow Farms organic basil.
- Spackman Real Estate: Crostinis with mixed local summer vegetables created by the Slow Food Kids Cooking Camp
- Aspens: Locally grown Aspens Market Potato Salad on a bed of Huidekoper Greens
- Snake River Ranch: Sweet Cheeks Meats carnitas tacos with Robinson Family Farm & Ranch pork and Cosmic Apple Greens
- Bodega and Teton Village Association: Fried Chicken Sandwiches and a variety of home-made doughnuts from Bad Doughnuts
By the way, the first stop will include a special guest. (Should we tell them, Shauna, or keep it a secret?) Buck Milligan, the 12-year-old TV celebrity chef star and grand champion of 2017 Chopped Junior will be joining Chippy’s Kitchen and Catering with his own creation to kick off the event.
“Cruising along the pathway and eating yummy food—not sure I can think of a better way to spend an afternoon in Jackson Hole. Bring your bike, an empty stomach and a smile,” said Katherine Dowson, FOP executive director.
The event will end at Teton Village, where, after enjoying their last plate, participants can make their way to the Concert on the Commons with Whitewater Ramble.
The event takes place this Sunday, July 30, from 1 to 5pm. It is a ticketed event.
